My husband and I had stayed at Kimpton's Hotel Monaco (loved it btw) last year, so we thought we'd try out the new Kimpton in town this trip. We loved our stay at Palomar.
First, Rachel, at the front desk was very kind and helpful, I give her and A+ for service. On that same note, everyone at the front desk was always kind and very friendly when we stopped by or called down for anything.
Our room was fantastic! We had a suite. The soaking tub was wonderful for relaxing after a long day exploring the city. The bed was super comfy. Our only negative comment would be if you are a very light sleeper be a little weary because you are in the middle of downtown chicago and the city can be a bit noisy at night (there is a fire station not too many blocks away). We had no trouble sleeping but it was noisy during the day, so I imagine it could be at night as well.
One afternoon we went down to Sable for an appetizer and drinks late one afternoon and were very happy with the food. We had the pork belly flatbread and highly recommend it.
Overall we highly recommend Hotel Palomar to anyone who wants a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. It is near everything downtown and couldn't provide a better experience.
