Recent guests of this Kimpton property compliment this hotel's style (a given, really) and its proximity to Dupont Circle's surplus of restaurants and bars. Each of the Hotel Palomar's stylish accommodations features bursts of bold color along with contemporary furnishings, as well as Samsung LCD TVs, Atelier bath amenities and 300 thread count Frette linens. When you're ready to step outside your digs, the contemporary lobby provides a perfect backdrop for the nightly wine reception. Plus, the outdoor heated pool and sundeck serve as equally alluring places for which to unwind in the warmer months. When your stomach starts to rumble, satiate your appetite at Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar, a trendy in-house hotspot that offers delectable Mediterranean fare. And if you participate in the Kimpton Karma rewards program, you can earn or redeem perks by choosing to bed down here.

Fun boutique flair, at a fair price. The 335-room Hotel Palomar has an outdoor pool, a lively bar and restaurant, and a great location near the Metro subway station and the nightlife of Dupont Circle. And being a Kimpton hotel, it has great perks — free wine hour; free Wi-Fi; pet pampering; great beds; top-notch service.

Travel + Leisure


Inside, the marble lobby is furnished with tiered chandeliers, large contemporary paintings, and a fireside 'living room' where the hotel hosts a complimentary evening wine hour. Designed in neutral tones with magenta accents, the 335 guestrooms contain leather headboards, faux-fur throws, crocodile-patterned carpets, and modern artwork.

The Washington Post


The latest Kimpton boutique hotel to come to Washington, the 335-room Palomar has a prime Dupont Circle location and an artsy theme. Its managers promise to play up its proximity to the Phillips Collection and numerous small galleries by having artists, curators and experts attend the afternoon 'wine hour' in the lobby to talk about nearby exhibits, and among the various theme rooms is the mirrored-and-barred 'ballet suite.'
