We spent 6 nights at Hotel Palomar with our two teens. We thoroughly enjoyed the DuPont Circle location which is also a 20 minute walk to the heart of Georgetown, and two blocks from the Rock Creek bike trail. It was very easy and economical to use Uber to get to the Mall area for the monuments and major sights...

We very much enjoyed our stay. Vibe is trendy and staff was generally welcoming. The hotel from a far is recently renovated... which matches the price. However, it's hard to describe, but in closer inspection, it seems they renovated on a very tight budget: and made some bad calls. For example, the shower head in our room was at least...

On day 2 of our stay. Lovely so far. Clean and modern. Dog friendly. Bike rentals. Large tv. Yoga Matt in room. No coffee in room but served in lobby between 6 and 10x Wine hour is great! Haven't visited their restaurant urban yet but looks very inviting.

It's a huge fun high energy chain hotel full of youngish people. Everybody was very nice, room was comfy (and also huge!), lobby ok, location good for restaurants, allowed late check out. But even though it was excellent value, I wouldn't stay there again. Lacked soul.

Location on DuPont Circle perfect. Rooms are re-done. Restaurant and Bar excellent. Staff very caring and attentive. Sammy's cafe across the street is a nice place for a cup of coffee and sandwich; i. e., neighborhood resources are excellent.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Travelled from BWI to this hotel, train connections were really good, from BWI to union station, and then metro to dupont circle metro, probably took just under an hour, which costed about 11USD. The metro location being about 5 min walk from the hotel makes it accessible to all the major locations....

My dogs and I stayed at the Palomar the other evening and were so pleased to see that it has been updated since we last visited. The rooms are bright and spacious.

People seem to love Kimpton hotels because they have more character than most of the large chains (even though they are now owned by IHG, one of the world's largest hospitality companies). I love a stylish spot, and this hotel promised good design, large rooms and a great location. While those things were all true, the hotel really has some...
