Nice, friendly hotel

Great location and unusually clean. The staff, especially [...], was most helpful in advising on running trails and how best to get around town on foot, Metro, and bus. Worst complaint about the hotel was a bathroon door swollen out of plumb such that it would not close quite properly (a bit of folded napkin took care of that until departure).

Luna Grill for well-prepared, inexpensive meals. Levante's for tasty, well-prepared mezze and specials, with an attentive staff

Modern luxe at a great price

I attended a conference, and did some site seeing and shopping. I have been to DC several times before and this is the best hotel I have stayed in.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is located near two Metro Stations. Get familiar with the subway, bring an umbrella, and good walking shoes.

Fantastic weekend destination

The location of the hotel is superb. Everything is accessible within 30 min of walking or 5 min by metro. With my girlfriend we were able to visit most of the "things to see in Washington" in two days. Overall we were extremly satisfied with Orbitz services and the hotel services.

Everything You Could Ask For In A Hotel

I look forward to attending an annual conference in DC because of the Hotel Palomar. It's located in beautiful Dupont Circle, which is jammed with shops/restaurants and has its own Metro Station. It's an oasis after a busy workday and great launching point for excursions in the capitol city. The rooms are immaculate, trendy and welcoming. The staff is friendly and professional. All in all, the Hotel Palomar is a gem.

Palomar Dupont Circle

Had an enjoyable stay. As it got more crowded during the week you could tell the soundproofing could be better. Great location, staff was very nice. Room was large and clean. Elevators were small but efficient. Should offer free wifi.

Nice surprise

An efficient staff made this business trip enjoyable. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but amenities and pleasant decor compensated. I'd stay here again and recommend it to colleagues.

I gave up trying to have a conversation in the hotel restaurant and left mid-meal in order to finish a business meeting. The noise level was off the charts at Sunday brunch. What a shame since the food was excellent!

Pretty Place

The place was very trendy. The only downside was the fact that there was no coffee maker in the unit so I couldn't make my own coffee. Otherwise, the stay was good.
