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

Best hotel experience to date!!!

The staff is super friendly, the hotel is clean & decorated beautifully, the rooms are spacious, modern and spotless. The wine reception each evening is great - red or white wine, snacks, cozy atmosphere, and a chance to meet new people. I went to their restaurant Urbana for drinks and apps a few times - delicious lamb meatballs and good wine options. This hotel offers exceptional value!!

Trendy, upscale hotel for bargain price!

Wanted to see the DC sights and do all the touristy stuff. The location is in Dupont circle and only a $10 cab ride to "The Mall" area where all the monuments and museums are. We took The Metro Train to Arlington National Cemetery and it was only $2 for each of us. The hotel staff were super friendly and the customer service couldn't be beat. They always greeted you, opened the doors, etc. The only thing I didn't like was that you had to pay for Internet usage. There's a great place to eat crepes across the street and an awesome pizza place called Pizza Paradiso just down the street as well. Lots of fun shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel. Although you have to cab it to the main sightseeing area, it's worth it for the customer service and value.

Check out 'DC by Foot.' It's a free walking tour of the mall area. They meet at the corner of 15th and Constitution. Just do a Google Search and you'll find their times and more info.

Great location and value

I have stayed in several hotels while doing business in DC, and the Palomar was my favorite. The staff was friendly, and the room, although a bit cramped for working, was clean and quiet. The fitness room was not overloaded with equipment, but it was more than sufficient for a good workout. I had the breakfast at the associated restaurant, and it was quite good. All in all, a good place to stay in DC, and I will return.

The first night I didn't feel like venturing far for dinner, and I was directed to the Pizzeria Paradiso which was about a block away. Great food and good value.

Very helpful, however pool was down

We were in DC to see our son-in-law graduate from GW Law School and to pack our daughter and son-in-law to move back to California. The hotel as a whole was very nice. Staff was very helpful. We were disappointed the pool was not open. Although we did not bring our pet it was nice to see she would have been welcome. We would defintley stay at this hotel again. The King Executive Suite was great!

Hotel Palomar

The Palomar Washington DC was an excellent accommodation to an important business trip. Spaciously large room, privacy honored, accommodations for working in the room were excellent. And the zebra and leopard bath robes??? What can one say?
