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.
Love this neighborhood in DC - New Hampshire Avenue just off Dupont Circle. Best neighborhood for travelers in the city - restaurants, nightlife, love running through this neighborhood, close to Metro, Kramerbooks is best bookstore in DC. The hotel has been vastly updated and upgraded in past few years. Clean, comfortable, contemporary, great bar and restaurant in the building now. Will be back.
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.
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.
