Another wonderful trip to Chicago staying at Palomar for around the 4th time. Hotel perfectly located for all central attractions. Staff very friendly and helpful especially James (one of the porters) who remembers our names and makes us feel so welcome. The free wine reception at 1700 is most welcome!

The hotel is supremely located! We walked almost everywhere, the few times we took a cab it was roughly $10. The staff was awesome! Especially the concierges Bobby and Mark as well as Adam the Hotel Manager. A valuable item was lost during our stay (child's precious sleep blanket) and while it hasn't been found as of yet the entire... More

I stayed for one night and wish I could have stayed longer. In addition to being a great value, and in the perfect location, the hotel pays attention to the details.

This was our 4th stay at Palomar in 4 years. The first 2 times we stayed, we really enjoyed it. The 3rd time and 4th times were just ok. The staff was super friendly as always.
