This was an amazing find and the price is just right for what you get. The staff stand out here compared to most hotels and looked after us extremely well. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean and a great bathroom with luxury towels. Loved the pool too and would return here next time.

We stayed on the 16th floor in a corner room over Valentine's Day weekend. The view of the city skyline was beautiful. It is a smaller hotel by Chicago standards and it had a more intimate, boutique feel. The lobby area is very modern and sleek. Our room was clean and had a comfortable king bed. One down side was...

Our Family's stay was amazing! The staff make you feel so welcome and are extremely accommodating. The service is nothing short of top-notch! Our Son was given a goody bag (which he loved!) it was a very nice touch. The pool is awesome and well taken care of. I would highly recommend to others and we will definitely be back... More

We love Kimpton Hotels and their little extra touches that make a difference. We were in Chicago in cold weather with a packed schedule and loved our accommodations. We had a deluxe double which was fine at a great price. Our friends staying in a suite gave them more room and I'd think about that for next time. Cocktails in... More

We just returned from a fantastic stay at Hotel Palomar in Chicago! All that I can say is WOW! Every staff member that we encountered from beginning to end treated us as if we were the only customers in the hotel! Our room was gorgeous. Every inch of the hotel was spotless. My children loved the pool, the jacuzzi in... More

For our valentines day weekend, we found a great deal via hotwire for the Palomar. Great location and beautiful details in the rooms and the lounge areas. We couldn't have asked for a more luxurious stay for the price.

We came down from MKE to celebrate my birthday and so glad we picked The Palomar. Lovely room, friendly + intelligent staff, yummy food at Sable, cozy fire in the lobby, a relaxing lap pool, even a birthday treat from the concierge. Plus walking distance to everything. What's not to love? A special shout out to the dinner staff at... More

I read the review about the bathroom doors and couldn't disagree more. We loved them, thought they were very unique and served the purpose. The room was a double queen and the beds were very comfortable. I mean VERY! The staff treated us like old friends and we'll always come back here when in Chicago. Thank you all!
