I have just spent a week at the Palomar hotel whilst in Chicago. I cannot praise the hotel highly enough. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

We stayed here at the end of Aug, 2014 . The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything we wanted to do, and many great eateries. Everyone from the front desk to the door staff were friendly, helpful, and very accommodating! We arrived 2 hours early, and check in was no problem at all. They also held our luggage for... More

This hotel is located in a great area in Chicago. We had a flawless check in, the rooms are extremely clean, and beds are super comfortable. They had a free wine reception from 5-7 and the wine was actually very good for being free. The place was very quiet at night, or at least our floor was. We didn't use... More

Less than a block from a CTA stop and within walking distance of some excellent restaurants, this was a perfect location. The corner room was spotless and comfortable, and every stop at Sable, the in-house bar/gastro-lounge, was top shelf.
