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.

They took care of it asap while we were out. The complimentary wine hour is an amazing touch. Rooms were clean and had nice decor. Our bathroom was a bit small but I appreciated there being a bathtub I could soak in. I only wish there was a microwave in the room. Read less

Perfect location which my girlfriend and I were able to walk to almost everywhere we wanted to visit. Very clean hotel with attentive staff that fixed a small issue we had right away. They also held our bags for a few hours while we continued to explore the city before our flight out

Upside: Great bed, comfortable room, very good service, decent bar and restaurant. Downside: walls a bit thin, you hear water running, thuds and hallway conversations. There was no hotel information in the room, and the hotel information page on the television did not work. Asked for this to be fixed, was not. Minor issue.

This area of town is full of funky fun restaurants. We stayed in a suite with a jacuzzi tub - perfect for Valentine’s Day. The service and staff here are five star. The happy hour is wonderful. I highly recommend!

Friendly staff. Room was spacious. Wine social is a very nice feature. Would have rated it a 5 but had to have the toilet fixed while there and fridge wasn’t cold. Will definitely stay here again in the future
