The Palomar is a boutique hotel located on State Street in the Loop. The hotel has a very small lobby with friendly and efficient front desk staff. Though if there are a few people checking in it at the same time the lobby gets crowded and chaotic with no clear place for people to queue during the check in process. In fact the lobby is so small that a few people waiting in the front desk area will also be blocking traffic from the elevators.
The decor is contemporary and clean without overpowering. The colors are a little on the dark side with a generally brown / earth tone pallette to the decor. The hallways are quiet and somewhat dimly lit, but do not feel unsafe.
The room was small but sufficient with a king bed and and an integrated bureau/wall unit with a nice flat screen tv mounted in it and deocrative vases on either side with accent lighting that was a nice touch. There is a nice plug station on the desk area to allow charging of various devices and decent lighting. The bed was very comfrortable with a supportive mattress and nice linens. The bathroom has a sliding door with a full length mirror and interesting kohler fixtures in the sink and bathtub (except for the showerhead, which was generic). Water pressure was good, and bath products were very nice.
Room service menu was interesting and reasonably priced, though the service ends at 11pm.
Overall a very pleasant experience for a short business trip.
