    VIBE

    The “Art in Motion” theme at this Kimpton property may sound a bit “corporate trying to play it cool,” but, to our delight, chic Hotel Palomar manages to make it genuinely cool cool. From the quirky details (the staff all list their “artistic inspiration” on their nametags) to the tailored, art house design (inspired, you guessed it, by Art Deco), and from the bold in-room canvases to the sharp onsite exhibitions co-sponsored by institutions like the Phillips Collection and the Smithsonian, it’s got a grown-up, sophisticated focus on art with a very appealing twist of fun. Service (which includes a “Cultural Concierge”) is genuine and friendly, and a complimentary nightly wine and hors d’oeuvres reception in the lobby has the panache and conviviality of a stylish gallery opening.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The spacious rooms are lovely, though we didn’t manage to spend much time in them, what with great onsite amenities (like the pool and fitness center) and happening Dupont Circle just around the corner. Classic Kimpton perks, like complimentary morning coffee and the evening wine reception, keep us sweet too.

    AMENITY WE LOVE

    Has to be the evening wine reception…though the pool and Urbana restaurant get thumbs up too.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    By comparison with the spacious rooms, the bathrooms are on the small side.
