I travel DC frequently to visit my son and daughter-in-law. Have stayed at several hotels and find the Palomar to be the most comfortable and affordable. A pleasant and unstuffy alternative to some more traditional hotels. Other occasional perks have included limo to restaurant (not regularly included), free bicycles and NY Times. Rooms are comfortable and since I prefer the DuPont Circle area, the location is perfect. Never had a complaint.
I had been flying here and there all week and flew out of NC at 6 AM to get to DC to close on a house. I needed a quiet hideaway treat for myself and had seen their special on Expedia. I picked the right spot! Signed the papers and slept in that lovely room gor 11 hours!!!!! It was a treat!
This hotel is in a perfect location for a night in Georgetown. My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and walked to the Kennedy Center which was an easy 10-15 minute walk. They are about 20 steps from M street, the main drag in Georgetown and a block from the waterfront. Staff was very friendly, rooms were well appointed and the location cannot be beat. We parked in a garage overnight nearby on a Saturday night and it was only $10. I believe they have valet parking but they were not there on our first pass by the hotel so we found the garage that was less then a block away.
I loved the service and atmosphere at this hotel. I ended up sick in bed, but the room and hotel staff did their best to help make the most of my stay. The ONLY drawback to the hotel is if you are sharing a room with someone. There is a very "open" layout to the bathroom/shower. Therefore, privacy to do "your thing" is difficult. You just need to time it out. :)
