What’s the benefit for IHG platinum member?
I cannot explain the benefit now, as I could before Kimpton got sucked into its newish IHG connection, but regardless of the benefits, which are well outlined above, Palomar is conveniently located, has the wine hour and yoga equipment, and the people at the desk are very helpful and seem to go above the norm. The pool on the top floor is also excellent, and you can go out onto the patio and take in the city around you. Not a bad place to read a book...

Hello there, It is very easy to access public transportation as the Grand/State stop on the red line is right outside our front door. It is about a 20 minute ride from door to door to Wrigley Field.

I would say that you found the right hotel then! We get many guests seeking ladies nights throughout the weekend. I would recommend our Luxury Suite with two queen beds in it as it would be a spacious room to hang out in before exploring our beautiful city. Please feel free to reach out to our hotel directly and ask to speak to our concierge team and they will be more than happy to recommend great things to do during your trip.

"higher the floor the better"
"Corner rooms are great!"
"If quiet is important to you, ask for a higher floor - this is in the heart of the city and River North has a great nightlife."
"Rooms 1612-1620 are directly beneath the gym. If you like quiet, try 1601 at the end of the hallway. Beautiful corner views, too!"
"Take swim wear"
$169 - $492 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
