Royal Sonesta Washington DC

Rated 8.5 in 343 reviews. 335 rooms.


Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC complements its vibrant neighborhood, pulsating with energy the moment you step off the bustling streets of Dupont Circle and into the luminescent polish of our living room. Here the glowing island fireplace entices guests to gather and converse with new friends over a morning macchiato or evening Negroni, making us a social hall for artists, philosophers, and self-manifested creatives. Our staff is smart, friendly, and unobtrusively attentive, and we value the importance of first impressions. We elevate your experience from the moment you approach our front desk, carrying through to thoughtful conversations you might share with our concierge about nearby restaurants, bars, galleries, and shops, as well as the greater world beyond. Take advantage of our luxurious and creative amenities, make use of our dynamic meeting and event spaces, and dine in our acclaimed restaurant Urbana, where rich Italian flavors steal the show.
