    On arrival your bags are taken by the porter. Check in was easy & we even got an upgrade! Location is great. Wine hour is such a good idea! The staff are really friendly.

  • 6.0.Good

    Good location and easy to get to. Some of the staff are very friendly and helpful, others less so. The photos make the property look a lot nicer than it is. Our deluxe queen room was cramped and not super clean. There was dust on the surfaces in the bedroom, a drawer with used/dirty tissues and a pretty small window looking out at other hotel rooms.

    Good hotel, near to metro for great transport links to all tourist sights, and a very nice area to stay with bars and restaurants nearby, including in Georgetown. Very comfortable and very helpful staff - we’ll be back for a further stay in the future!

    In the heart of Dupont, a great location surrounded by restaurants in a busy urban residential area. Rooms are large and airy, pool area could do with a bit of attention with the view of the adjacent buildings a bit messy. Wine hour needs to include some beers! Lovely friendly staff.

    Nice location, big room

    Nice hotel, disappointing pool

    The Kimpton Palomar in DC is a good hotel let down greatly by its outdoor pool. Our room was a good size, felt very spacious and comfortable. With coffee maker available on request. Dupont Circle area is a little away from the Lincoln Mall and it’s attractions, this suited us as we were nearer to Georgetown. Front of house team were excellent at dealing with any requests for help. The social wine hour was a nice touch but was slightly crazy in the lobby. Biggest disappointment was the pool area. The real reason we chose this hotel and the explantation for the 3 star facilities grade. The pool area was cramped and dirty, with cloudy pool water and did not feel like an area you would want to spend any time in. A real shame!

    Disappointing stay

    The service was slow but staff very friendly. Basically be aware that the photos are better than in person. The tub is not as deep or luxurious as it is in real life. The shower squeaked and was old. The ac wouldnt cool our room and we were consistently hot. There was no iron and the ice machine was out and youd have to call to the front desk for it. Just unfortunately disappointing for the money and uncomfortable.

    probably stay away

    There was a problem with AC in the entire hotel. The coolest room we could find was 75 degrees. Room smelled musty and we discovered a soaking wet carpet in the middle of the room. Not sure where the water was coming from. Staff was nice but ineffective.
