So glad I had an opportunity to stay at Palomar. Great location, extra special quirky vibe, fabulous staff. They go out of your way to make you feel welcome. Love the outdoor heated sitting area (just one of the many luxuries). Perfect room. Wouldn't change a thing. If you can afford it, this is the place to stay.

Loved the hotel location, modern decor. Loved the king spa room. We enjoyed sable the restaurant many times after going out at night. Definitely upgrade to King spa room. Huge room with couch and seating area with city views and walk in shower and jacuzzi tub. Highly recommended. Will stay again.

This was the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed at the Palomar. Hotel has a great location in River North. The staff is excellent. Rooms are nicely decorated, clean and a nice size. We asked for an upper floor room to get away from the street noise, and the desk clerk put us in a room on the top... More

I visited Chicago with my daughter and it was her 16th birthday. I booked a room at the Palomar on-line and in the comments section mentioned it was her birthday. When we got to the hotel everyone at the desk wished her Happy Birthday and when we got to the room they have a champagne bucket full of bottled root... More

The hotel was perfect for a weekend getaway. The hotel is just off of Michigan Ave, lots of great places in walking distance, we never used our car. They have a nightly wine hour which is always a nice way to relax. The room was clean and very comfortable.

Stayed at the Palomar this past weekend. It is a very nice near north hotel, close to shopping, fine restaurants and nightlife. The room was spacious and well appointed. I would highly recommend giving the Palomar hotel a try if you are travelling to Chicago for a visit.

My daughter and I went for a quick weekend visit to Chicago. We booked the Palomar and couldn't have been more pleased. I travel extensively for work and this was a great hotel - especially given the price. The hotel was modern and the room was very nice. We had a corner room with great views of the city and... More

We stayed at this hotel on business, but since I was with my wife I look at it as a couples vacation also. The property is in a great location, we were able to walk everywhere we needed and wanted to be in the great city of Chicago. The staff was very friendly, from the minute you drive up to... More

I needed to go to Chicago on business and I just do not like staying out by the airport where the food show I was attending was being held. So I looked for a boutique luxury hotel in downtown Chicago that was close to a train station and I found the Palomar a Kimpton hotel. I had stayed at the... More
