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

Pretty good, but not great

The service at the hotel was exceptional and the location a block from Dupont Circle is wonderful. It is close enough to the center of DC life, but situation in a comfortable neighborhood with numerous independent restaurants and retail establishments. The only real complaint was the cleanliness of the room. Housekeeping did a fine job, but the decorative blankets on the beds and the carpet on the floor both seemed like they needed to be replaced...or at least could use a good washing. The worst was a pretty disgusting stain on the seat cushion of the only comfortable chair in the room. At least I had a place to put the questionable blankets.

Average hotel playing dress up

This hotel wants to be nice, and has nice hotel prices, but hasn't quite figured it out. Location is great, but watch out for add-ins. Sky high prices for everything from internet (really? No free wifi?) to room service to parking ($45/night).

Great location, needs spark

I love the kimpton chain, but because I booked through a "third party" I don't feel I got as special a treatment as I normally do, even though I am a participant in the rewards program.

Mixing business with please in DC

This was my 2nd time staying at The Palomar. Inside , everything is great. It's a comfortable and inviting place to come back to after a day of walking around town and taking in the sights. It's location is tough to beat... near DuPont Circle and the Metro station, a comfortable walk to Georgetown, and close accessible to all the museums without being in the high-concentration of tourist lodging. When I go back to DC, this will be on my list.

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.

Great overnight

Even though I only stayed 1 night due to it being a business tip, the room was very nice just a little small for a queen room. The staff was friendly and helpful. When I return to Washington DC again I would certainly stay at the Palomar hotel. It is located close to the center of the city and has a great atmosphere.

No hassle stay

Room wasn't available at 1:30, so I was offered a larger room at $40 extra. Beautiful, basic room with all Kimptom plusses. Efficient check in and check out. Will be back.
