Our suite was huge an gorgeous -- plush purple and fuschia furnishings splash color on muted chocolate-beige rooms. Our nightstands were lit from within and the chaise lounge and zebrawood doors were very glam. The separate living room had a comfy sleeper queen, TV, cocktail table and writing desk, Our bath was huge with his and her sinks, a huge whirlpool/soaking tub and a separate Italian marble shower. Rock Creek Park, two blocks from the hotel, is a wooded oasis with hiking and biking trails and direct access to the National Zoo.
The Hotel Palomar features on-site beauty services, massage treatments and fitness equipment. European cuisine and an extensive wine list await at Urbana, the hotel's popular eatery, complete with an exhibition kitchen, wood-burning oven and lounge area. We enjoyed a complimentary cocktail in the lounge upon check in an dit was a great place to people watch.
