A Stay in Style

Twice a year, my husband and I flee suburbia and spend a weekend playing tourist in the District. We become total imposters, dining well and staying in chic hotels. One of our favorite places to stay is Hotel Palomar near Dupont Circle in D.C. There’s much to see and do in Dupont, but the hotel isn’t far from Georgetown, and the walk makes for a nice afternoon.

Hotel Palomar is one of the Kimpton Hotels, a chain of stylish boutique hotels that strives to offer personalized service and “feel-good amenities.” Palomar’s Hosted Evening Wine Hour is a treat at the end of a busy day of sightseeing, and the staff’s gracious hospitality is second to none.

Traveler’s Advisory: The cool robes aren’t free, but you can order them here.
