Urbana
A downtown dining hotspot adjacent to Hotel Palomar Washington DC Urbana strikes the perfect note. It is as much a destination restaurant as a neighborhood hangout. Linger over a glass of wine and delicious small plates at the bar or savor a full aromatic

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.

A comfortable Washington destination

I like the Kimpton chain - I appreciate the attention to good design, the friendliness of the staff, the daily wine tasting, and other amenities not found in other, big-chain hotels. I also liked the on-site restaurant - much classier than that in most hotels.

The Palomar is near DuPont Circle, a center of Washington's night life. I also use the DuPont Circle Metro station to go almost everywhere else in Washington, including Union Station and National Airport.

Terrific Location near Metro

The exercise room is much better than typical hotel gym. The location is wonderful. It is close to metro, nice restaurants and the Phillips collection of Impressionist Art.

Terrific Place

Complimentary services were excellent; coffee in the morning, water and popsicles for the young ones in the afternoon, wine in the evening. There aren't any decent breakfast restaurants near the hotel. The restaurant associated with the hotel is very pricey and fair. Hallways at night are noisy - you can hear people opening and closing their doors and talking. Staff was excellent! Overall a great place to stay.
