Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

The hotel

An award-winning luxury boutique hotel, the Palomar combines high-end art house design with sophistication and impeccable service. The dramatic two-story lobby sets the scene, complemented by bold artwork and marble flooring throughout. Guest rooms are some of the most spacious in Washington DC with a warm, inviting palate of colours and a wealth of modern amenities. For those intent on staying perfectly honed, there’s a well-equipped health centre on the second floor as well as a seasonal outdoor swimming pool complete with sundeck for relaxing in-between laps. In-room spa treatments* may also tempt you with massage and beauty rituals tailored to meet your needs. Every morning, complimentary tea and coffee is served in the living room, the perfect start to a perfect day. Come sundown, head back to the living room for a complimentary glass of wine and the chance to mingle with fellow guests. Adjacent to the hotel is Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar, a hip downtown dining spot offering a contemporary approach to dishes from Italy, Spain and France. It’s a wonderful place to while away a relaxing evening or head to nearby Dupont Circle for a much wider choice of eateries plus some great bars and cafes.

Staying here for an annual event was once again a pleasure. No complaints whatsoever about the room or the service. The function spaces were well-matched to our needs (though they seemed to be having issues with the temperature controls). The hotel is also in easy walking range of public transit, museums, and numerous restaurants. The only strange… Read more

The function spaces were well-matched to our needs (though they seemed to be having issues with the temperature controls). The hotel is also in easy walking range of public transit, museums, and numerous restaurants. The only strange thing is that the final hotel bill was once again cheaper than the quoted stay price at booking time. Read less

Incredible stay and, despite the turbulent times with the Covid-19, the people could not have been nicer, especially, Atheia. Everyone went above and beyond the call and I was, personally, very impressed and grateful. They ensured my stay was great and did the little things that mean a lot.

Kimpton Palomar makes business trips phenomenal. For nearly the same rate as a Marriott you’re treated like a King. When I arrive I was immediately greeted by Nabil, Ermias, and Kabara.

Kimpton Palomar makes business trips phenomenal. For nearly the same rate as a Marriott you’re treated like a King. When I arrive I was immediately greeted by Nabil, Ermias, and Kabara. They asked me how my day was, took me out of my phone and work day to show me the hotel. It’s beautiful. Immediately relaxed. Bags sent to room just needed to check in. Jawuan, Douglas, and Andre took the time to tell me about the hotel where to eat, happy hour etc. Also have us a 20% off for dining. All above and beyond. My housekeeper Miriam asked if I needed anything before I even opened the door. Room was spacious, comfortable king, spotless bathroom. Mini bar is a bit pricy as expected, but you can grab everything at the supermarket across the street. Attached pics of the room. Place was spotless. Can’t ask for anything more. Thanks for the great stay! Rick- your team was incredible. Ty Read less
