Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC completes a multimillion-dollar redesign

Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC lobby
Since opening its doors in 2006, Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC has become a vibrant, urban locale within the Dupont Circle neighbourhood. This spring, as it completes a multimillion-dollar redesign to all 335 guest rooms and suites, as well as to public, meeting and event spaces, and adds a brand new Bridal Suite, Kimpton Palomar DC’s energy is now coupled with an undeniable edge and artistic feel that pulses through every space.

Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC’s new bold look, devised by Powerstrip Studios, was inspired by the hotel’s close proximity to Georgetown and the surrounding universities and art galleries. With a proud, stylish colour palette that befits the confident D.C. crowd, the hotel’s refreshing design creates bright, chic spaces where light freely flows.  

Guests will first notice the change in Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC’s engaging living room, updated with a comfortable, modern design and a fresh approach to colour and pattern, embracing sky blues and lemony yellows. Combined with eye-catching art pieces, installed when the hotel first opened, the relaxed, understated space allows for creative minds to linger and discuss or simply enjoy Kimpton’s nightly hosted wine hour or morning coffee by the glowing marble fireplace.  

In the hotel’s guest rooms, modern interior architectural pieces outfit the spaces, punctuated with pops of marigold, union blue and oxford white. The timeless Georgetown gray wood platform beds are complimented by crisp, bright throw pillows and drapes with multicoloured striped grosgrain. Industrial but chic metal wire light fixtures and stylish herringbone tweed lounge chairs accentuate the rooms handsomely. The artwork is fresh and minimalistic, with a large framed black and white study of positive and negative space, hanging above each bed as well as stylish silhouettes of dogs hanging near the entrance. No detail has been missed, as even the rooms’ ceilings are accentuated with hand-painted silver lines that frame the perimeters. Bespoke geometric carpets in taupe with large-scale, creative blue doodles overtop. Smart quartz workspaces outfitted with built-in power plugs and plush ergonomic chairs face the windows from which guests can view the active cityscape.  

Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC’s 26 luxurious one and two bedroom Executive, Spa and Presidential Suites have also been redesigned to include the same furnishings as the guest rooms, with additional artwork and detail, and carefully planned use of space so the rooms have separate living and sleeping quarters. All guest bathrooms feature quartz stone-top sinks with splayed black legs, modern geometric wallpaper decorated with hanging, dimmable wire light fixtures above refinished Bianco Perla Italian marble tiles, with some suites offering separate glass enclosed showers and jetted Fuji bathtubs.  

In addition to the redesigning of the hotel’s well-loved suites, due to its popularity with wedding parties, Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC has also added a brand new Bridal Suite, perfect for starting any day filled with wedding bliss. In the signature two-room suite, the same smart colour scheme is still present, but with added amenities specifically designed for wedding day preparations, such as a sparkling framed full-length mirror, picture-perfect wall hooks for wedding gowns, and a two-seat Parsons dressing table with additional power outlets, tri-fold decorative mirrors and clear ghost chairs, positioned near the windows for plenty of natural light for styling hair and applying make-up.  

Both couples and businesses can head downstairs to use Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC’s 10,000 square feet of meeting and event space, which is result of a redesign in early 2015. The seven spaces can host gatherings ranging from 10 to 300 guests, offering Italian cuisine expertly prepared by executive chef Ethan McKee, from the adjacent restaurant Urbana Dining & Drinks. Handsome decor draws heavily on the inspiration from local universities and galleries, after which the rooms are named.  

Conveniently located less than two blocks from Dupont Circle, the 335-room Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC is located at 2121 P Street, N.W., in Washington, D.C.
