Great hotel from the valet to the front deck everyone made me feel right at home. Room was very big bed was comfortable. The lobby bar was a great spot of an after dinner drink, once again the bar tenders were very friendly. Would defiantly stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at the Palomar for 3 nights in February. Our room was very comfortable with a great bed and lovely bathroom. My husband especially liked the tub and shower since he's 6'3" and had plenty of room. We attended the happy hour reception the first night and it was very nice with a variety of wines...

I had a business trip planned in Feb in Chicago. Knowing it would be very cold, I wanted to stay in a hotel with a good restaurant, very short walk to the train and very short walk to other restaurants. Parking is a bit expensive, but since only one of us was going to have a car, the Palomar was...

The Palomar Hotel is that rare combination of character, friendliness, and spaciousness. So many of the charming boutique hotels in Chicago have tiny rooms, but this one has a unique, modern vibe with plenty of space. It is conveniently located, walking distance from the Magnificent Mile shopping district and close to great restaurants, and a short cab ride to the...

Spent 2 nights here and everything was perfect. Professional yet friendly service, clean and attractive rooms and the nicest pool I've experienced in Chicago. The pool is on the 17th floor and has windows on 2 sides so it is bright. It's a good size pool without chlorine which was very pleasant. Large thick pool towels unlike many hotels. Highly...

We stay here every time we are in Chicago, which is several times per year. Rooms are great, beautiful appointments, soaking tubs in suites are a treat, and staff service is excellent. And the beds are perfect clouds of comfort. The location is perfect for shopping the Mile, the loop, and walking to neighborhoods.

Tried the Palomar for the first time, as I like Kimpton hotels. I wasn't disappointed, as the hotel had the usual tidiness and high quality I expect from Kimpton. I think I prefer the layout of their Monaco in Chicago, but I have no real complaints. The bed was very comfortable, the room clean and quiet, and the adjoining bar...
