My friend had his wedding here and most guests stayed at the hotel. The wedding itself was handled very well, but I'll keep the review to the lodging aspect. I'll start with the good stuff. Booking: I waited until literally the last minute to book under the special group rate for wedding guests. The website had stopped accepting the group... More

Its the second time I'm staying at this hotel and god, I love it. The location is just great for business people as well as for tourists. Everything is in walking distance and there are some great bars and restaurants around. Not to mention the hotel itself has an outstanding bar. Service is very high standard as in most Kimptons(...

I am a huge fan of the Kimpton chain for three reasons -- 1) their properties are typically mid-city which makes them convenient for both business and pleasure travel; 2) there is always a subtle "edge" to the decor of the properties making them interesting without being jarring; and 3) most importantly, they are truly and completely pet/dog friendly --...

This was our first time here and I was so impressed by the service . Justin checked us in and as a rewards member we got a card for money off the mini bar. The room was spacious with super comfortable beds. The fitness room is well equipped with weights, exercise balls and lots of cardio equipment. Stan was so... More

Stayed here in September for a business meeting. Stayed on the 8th floor, directly across from the elevators. The elevators were very loud and the crack going around the room door allowed for hallway light and plenty of noise that was easily heard from people returning to their rooms. The rooms were very nice other than the aforementioned comment &... More

While enjoying our free wine and appies we met other hockey fans and folks from Canada. Our stay was pleasant from beginning to end, we will stay here again as it's walking distance to everywhere we needed to be while in the windy city!

We stayed in July 2016. However, in June we visited the hotel to see if I could discuss my special diet with the chef. I was given an email address for the head chef by the restaurant manager, Scott. I contacted the head chef and explained what foods I could have and he responded that they would take good care... More

Stayed here when Barbra Streisand was in town. Love this hotel as it allows pets to stay free. They will give you bowls and beds for them. Desk and housekeeping are very friendly. Palomar is located in central location. It is not far from downtown (The Loop) or Michigan Avenue. All are very walkable. If you choose they will let... More

This hotel is a Chicago Gem, Room was huge, exceptional service and quiet. Beds were very comfortable and I appreciated the upgrade. Would stay here again in a heartbeat if I had to stay in Downtown Chi-Town.
