We enjoyed a five night stay at this hotel. It was easy to reach from the airport via metro which stops just across the road. The room overlooked a road but was quiet and comfortable. The hotel café and bar are very popular with the locals and in the evening it a lively place to be. The weather was glorious (late August) and spending the evening sitting outside was entertaining. The staff were welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about trips and getting about etc.
Was only able to stay one night at this hotel.The staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was small but comfortable and well appointed. Very clean and quite. The elevators are rather small and can be a squeeze if there are more then 2 people with luggage or a cart are inside you also have to use a keycard to swipe for access which can be tricky with people and luggage. I wish that breakfast was served earlier I travel for work and frequently leave before 6am or perhaps a small selection of cereal or baked goods could be made available in the lobby. I will say the in room coffee was pretty tasty this is not always the case. It was a little further walk then I expected from public transport. The only other thing I found interesting is that the bar on the lower level AND the rooftop bar closed on Saturday at 10pm? I was told by a staff that this is not the hotel's preference but DC government rules?
My twin son's and I stayed at the DC Palmoar for 4 days/3nights. We were able to do an early check-in and late check-out as well.
The location is great for those who wish to sight-see and enjoy a buzzing metropolis. The Dupont Metro station is just a few blocks away and quite a few buses run right by the hotel itself.
We didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel, but it was always full of people and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
My boys loved the hotel and we had a very spacious, double Queen bed room----very nice and well cared for. There wasn't anything overly run-down, just the normal slight wear and tear that comes with busy hotels.
The pool was also a charming spot, not too big, but big enough for numerous people to be in it at the same time. There were towels, chairs and two cabanas available for use as well.
All in all, I can honestly and enthusiastically recommend this hotel to both singles and families alike.
My stay was just one night, but from check-in to check-out, everything was excellent. The hotel staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, from the people at reception (remembered my name at check-out, which was quite impressive, for a one night stay), to the housekeeping and car valet personnel. The room was well-appointed, and very comfortable. The hotel is in an excellent location, in a very pleasant and walkable neighborhood. I met friends whom I hadn't seen for a long time and the hotel lounge was a very comfortable venue for quiet conversation, plus the complimentary wine service in the evening was a great added feature!
The hotel is centrally located near Dupont circle, Georgetown and Foggy Bottom. The rooms are good, clean and spacious. Please note, wifi is not free. This takes one star off.
A good experience otherwise.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
