The Palomar is terrific boutique hotel conveniently located close to shopping and restaurants. We stayed there when we were in Chicago for a wedding. We were given a room behind the elevator that initially caused us some concern until we realized it was very quiet. It was also a larger room than other rooms our friends had. The staff were very helpful and the hotel provides morning coffee and evening wine in the lobby, a nice touch we all enjoyed. There is a Starbucks a block away and a great Italian shop/restaurant Eataly nearby. Michigan avenue is a short walk. We would stay here again.

I hardly rate a hotel “outstanding” but the Kimpton Palomar was. The location is close to Michigan Ave, Eataly (most importantly) and many other things. The service was impeccable. Everybody was smiling. No attitudes. The bellman was always smiling. They were always willing and able to help. The rooms were clean and in good condition. There is ample work space. The air conditioning was cold. Housekeeping was prompt and did a great job. In the mornings there was tea and coffee available. The iced coffee is by far the best I’ve had (that seriously says a lot). I was hesitant to stay here since I have Hilton status but I was glad I did. My only complaint was there were a lot of families and it could get a bit loud. They provided amazing service on 4th of July weekend and that is impressive.

We’ve had our fair share of hotel stays in Chicago and by far was the Hotel Palomar the best! The amenities were amazing, our view from our very spacious room was breathtaking and the staff went above & beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. All the staff always greeted you, had a smile on their face and answered all our questions. Our kids loved the pool & the hubby & I enjoyed the gym. We all agreed relaxing on the rooftop terrace was just what we needed after a long day of walking. Speaking of walking the hotel was in the perfect location for short walks to wherever you wanted to go. We will definitely be back again!

We traveled extensively in June from Chicago to Boston and then NYC. The Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago was the best hotel of the hotels where we stayed. The room was spacious, modern and clean. The bathroom was amazing. Lots of counter space, fantastic shower with great water pressure. The staff was exceptional, I especially was impressed with our concierge. The location was central. A short walk to the River Walk and about a 15 minute walk to Millennium Park. We will definitely be back!
