I had a conference in downtown Chicago and stayed at the Palomar. What a wonderful experience the hotel was!!! The staff was very warm and welcoming, always greeting you with a smile. The lobby, although small, was very nice, modern and clean (and it smells really good too). The room was lovely – clean, comfortably modern, and compared to some hotel rooms in Chicago, spacious. Loved the barn door to the bathroom and enjoyed the sinker tub and great shower. The restaurant on the ground level, Sable Kitchen & Bar, is absolutely delicious and they make excellent drinks! This was a fantastic location too. Easy access to all of the great downtown Chicago activities, and right next to a subway stop (the “El”). The area was buzzing with life and energy. I’d definitely recommend staying at the Palomar for your next Chicago visit – you won’t be disappointed!
