Recently returned from a very enjoyable 5 night stay at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar in Chicago. Coming in by the Red Line from O'Hare, the stop was a half block from the hotel. We found a nice expedia package flight and hotel deal which included the Palomar. Location is just north of the river a block north of the Trump... More

Chosen for its location because of the marathon weekend, but it suited our needs in all ways; closeness to everything we needed, many choices of great restaurants, a Mall, the River, the Magnificent Mile for super shopping and people watching, the accessibility to the train from the airport, and as regards the hotel itself - the rooms are larger than...

We recently spent the night at the Palomar Hotel to celebrate our anniversary. Right from the check in, Mark and Bobby made a big deal about our anniversary! Everyone who works there are professional and courteous. We highly recommend the Palomar and will be returning.

Stayed three nights in this hotel at beginning of October. Excellent location for getting round Chicago, close to Michigan Avenue and the river. We booked a King Size room with a city view and it certainly met our expectations. Rooms a decent size, you get a coffee machine but you have to ask. Desk seat a bit shabby. The weather... More

Great location. Just a couple of blocks from Michigan Avenue. Lots of nearby restaurants and bars. Staff very friendly. Hotel decor and rooms well appointed. The only small hitch: No hooks in the bathroom. Bed was great. Seems to be a trend in a modernist design. Loved the 5 p.m. wine hour. Didn't run the Chicago Marathon, but appreciated how... More

We stayed at the Palomar this past Columbus Day weekend. This was my first time staying at a Kimpton Hotel but it won't be my last. Our visit coincided with the running of the Chicago Marathon (which we did not know ahead of time) and the population of the city increased by many thousands of people over the three days.... More

Location is great at the heart of Chicago , restaurants and groceries close by. The rooms are neatly maintained and roomservice staff are very attentive. Room tariff competitive. The in house restaurant and bar staffs are also nice and does excellent job to satisfy the guests. Coming back next summer :)

The Palomar Chicago is a step above all other hotels. We've stayed there a couple of times and both visits, the staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was wonderful. It's the little things that impressed us the most. We have already booked our next visit with them!

We stayed here for the Chicago marathon, and the location was ideal. We ate at a couple of great restaurants within a few blocks, and the start to the race (Grant Park/Millennium Park) was less than a mile away. Easy walk to many tourist attractions and to transportation to other parts of Chicago. The rooms were spacious for a "boutique"... More

The Palomar in Chicago never disappoints. Great staff, great food and great location. The family and I came in for quick visit (hubby ran Chicago. Marathon) and Palomar was right on the marathon course with a heated patio area. Additionally mile 3 and 12 were walking distance.
