    Excellent Stay !

    I only stayed one night at the hotel but very convenient, lots of places around for dining out etc ... close to the underground in Dupont Circle to go downtown. (tip : on street parking is free on Sundays !) Would come back on my next visit !

    A pleasant stay

    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 thing is that the final hotel bill was once again cheaper than the quoted stay price at booking time.

    Incredible people and property

    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.

    Great stay!

    We had a great stay at the Palomar - great location, the staff was extremely welcoming and helpful, room was very clean... can’t wait to go back! The staff went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience and it’s clear they are focused on the guest experience.

    Stay here. It’s perfect.

    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
