This hotel is located in a very touristy part of town, with an easy walk to high end stores, great clubs and restaurants and we had a great skyline view from our eighth floor corner room. The staff was friendly and helpful, and parking, although expensive, was taken care of by courteous valets. Complimentary wine in the early evening and... More

Stayed for 2 nights in March (Spring Break). Checked into a suite and was not disappointed. Very close to all of the Michigan Ave shops and easy access to public transportation. Check in was very smooth and "Sarah" at the front desk did a great job of representing this hotel. Only complaint (?) I would have is the bathroom door... More

We have stayed at the Palomar before and see no reason to stay at any other hotel in Chicago. Every staff member is excellent. The concierges, Mark and Bobby, are helpful (sushi reservations!), knowledgeable (directions and maps!), and completely capable of making one's hotel stay (and Chicago adventures) quite enjoyable! We love the one bedroom suites and plan to move... More

We stayed her for one night this past weekend. I am a huge fan of the Kimpton Hotel line, and the Palomar Chicago did not disappoint. Valet service, while pricey (as is all parking in The Loop), was well organized. The valet drivers were very professional. Check-in was equally flawless. The esthetics of the hotel are phenomenal. The 'living room-like'... More

Let me start by saying the hotel is in a great location. The rooms are relatively spacious and clean. But we had some issues with the front desk staff. They were all perfectly nice and pleasant, but they just couldn't get things right. My wife is frequent business traveler and often stays at Kimpton Hotels. As such, when we checked... More

I stayed at the Palomar Chicago hotel for two weeks in celebration of my 49th birthday. I had a marvelous time! The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is a real gem. It's conveniently located to all the metro lines and in a very nice area of town. All of the staff members were friendly, professional and knowledgable.... More

I travel to Chicago frequently on business, and the Palomar is my first choice when the rates are reasonable (generally, when it's cold there). I stayed in a north-facing upper floor room, and it was one of the quietest and most comfortable rooms I have ever experienced. The bed and bedding are fantastic, the blackout drapes are completely effective, and... More

Girlfriend and I stayed for a night out in the city. Wished we had more time to spend in the room now! Beds and pillows were top of the line. Their on-site restaraunt was amazing. Waiters knew the menu thoroughly, and actually just left it up to him to bring us out something of his choice. Also brought me a... More

We went to Chicago for a 2 night get away around Christmas time. The hotel was great. The location was excellent, within walking distance of tons of great shopping, just a few blocks from Michigan Ave. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The room was very clean and felt upscale with modern decor and awesome views. We had... More

I can't say enough positive things about the Palomar-we had a girls weekend there and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a truly memorable weekend! Thanks Bleu, Selwig and Luke! The Palomar is very classy without being pretentious-we will definitely be back for another great weekend!
