My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Palomar at the end of June and were really pleased with the hotel, staff and location.
Our King Deluxe City View room was a good size, very clean, well equipped and nicely furnished, very comfy bed, good bathroom amenities with nice thick towels, as well as robes.
The wine reception (5-6 p.m.) was nicely done, and a great place to enjoy a quick or leisurely drink in their large sitting room (interesting books & a very nice fireplace in there as well.) The pool, exercise room and outdoor patio on the 17th floor are also great. (We took our wine up to the patio to enjoy the views and comfy lounge chairs there one evening.)
Coffee/tea in the lobby, and bottled water at the door in the morning were appreciated.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
We were there over a w/e and although the hotel was busy, we never had to wait more than a minute or two for elevators.
We saw a few dogs but there are only a couple of floors designated for clients with pets, so it's not a concern for travelers without pets....it was actually fun to see a few pets during our stay there.
In-touch members receive free internet, which saves about $12/day.
The location is excellent ... within walking distance to the river, Michigan Ave, the Loop, Millennium Park, and also right next to the Red Line station (we made good use of the CTA on the trains and buses with our 3 day passes.) It was easy to take the train from the airport to the hotel and back again.
We had an amazing time during this first visit to Chicago, and felt that staying at the Palomar really made the trip special!
