Dupont Circle’s Hotel Palomar Washington, DC redesigned its seven meeting and event spaces, corridor, and prefunction spaces—totaling 10,000 square feet—in the spring. Designed by Los Angeles’s Powerstrip Studios, the look of the hotel is inspired by D.C.’s iconic university clubs. In the 2,200-square-foot Phillips Ballroom, mirrored columns, modern chevron wallpaper, and patterned carpet evoke the marquetry floorings found in classic old halls. The space holds 300 guests for receptions. The 2,268-square-foot National Room holds 220 guests for receptions, while smaller meeting rooms such as the Kreeger, Hirshhorn, Freer, Corcoran, and Boardroom contain design details like color-blocked linen curtains and classic herringbone print wallpaper. The decor in prefunction spaces is inspired by libraries, with halls lined with graphic art bookcases. The hotel also has started a renovation of its guest rooms that is expected to finish in March.
