Fabulous stay in Dupont!
Posted Aug 30, 2016
My husband and I stayed at the Kimpton Palomar in Washington, DC for a long weekend. We chose this hotel based on the amazing reviews we read on Expedia and TripAdvisor and because it had a pool (although we didn’t end up using it, it was an ideal option to have with the heat wave we experienced!). The location is ideal – you can walk pretty much everywhere, from Georgetown to the White House and National Mall (we did all of the above and with ease!).
The hotel itself was fabulous. Our room was HUGE and well appointed. The bedding was soft and the toiletries smelled amazing (they were Atelier Bloem and very nice!). The in-house restaurant, Urbana, was lovely and the happy hour was super well priced, delicious and convenient. The hotel also has complimentary coffee and tea every morning from 6-10am and a complimentary wine happy hour from 5-6pm every evening! Definitely a huge bonus!
I mentioned we did not use the pool but saw it from the gym at it had plenty of space for guests to relax and unwind. The Fitness Center was great – super clean with great machines and accessories, towels, water and fresh fruit. Also, we do not have a pet but saw lots of dogs as the hotel is pet friendly! Another amenity we noticed but didn’t (and should have!) taken advantage of was the bicycle rentals. What a great way to get around town! Lastly, everyone we interacted with at the hotel was friendly and helpful. Thank you, Kimpton Palomar DC, for a wonderful stay. Will will certainly be back!
