Hotel Palomar

54321 1 reviews

The Kimpton Group does it again!  The Hotel Palomar Washington D.C. stands within one block of Dupont Circle, Embassy Row and the Phillips Gallery. Access to the Metro is less than two blocks from the hotel.

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. Huge plus for families:  the hotel has a heated outdoor pool with a sundeck and food and beverage service.  As all other Kimpton properties, the Palomar offers KimptonKids program, family amenities to make family vacations stress free, including: 

  • Cribs or Playards (request at time of reservation, complimentary)
  • Highchairs and booster seats, in restaurants or in-room
  • In-room child safety kits include outlet covers, toilet latches and nightlights
  • Each child is greeted with a special KimptonKids welcome gift
  • A list of kid-friendly activities in the area includes parks, restaurants and enriching classes

PoshBrood Review Elizabeth April 4, 2011


I attended a meeting here and the lobby was gorgeous, staff super accomodating and the rooms very large and chic. (My colleagued showed me her room.) I had to leave at the end of the meeting to fly home but will definitely come back to stay with or without kids! (PS I also saw a lot of dogs and hotel and guests super friendly about it.)
