Where "Art in motion comes to life", The Hotel Palomar thankfully has zero tiger paintings, and even more thankfully does have a subterranean restaurant & wine bar, a heated outdoor pool, and swanky, eclectic décor. So, they weren't kidding about the art. Finish a hard day of taking photos that make the Washington Monument look like your dong at underground Urbana, which serves up seasonal Mediterranean cuisine. Or grab a drink at the lounge next door, where the bartenders are focused on making great 'tails. A reptilian skin rug and snow leopard bed spread? Call the PETA police! Just kidding -- there's no such thing as PETA police. What you don't see in this Presidential suite is the bathroom with Italian marbled floors and a Fuji soaking tub for two.
