Just returned from an overnight in the city with my daughter and her friend. We can't see enough great things about the Kimpton Palomar and how nicely we were treated by Mark and his front desk staff. We got the Dylan's candy tour package and that was a huge hit with the teenage girls.The hotel is very centrally located and...

A perfect, walkable location to the Magnificent Mile without that pricing. I signed up for their rewards program where you select preferences and they were fulfilled upon arrival; corner room away from elevators and feather pillows. The room was newly renovated, clean, spacious and what a view! So many great restaurants all close by. Our daughter decided to join us...

My wife and have now spent 5 of our first anniversaries at the Palomar as well as several other personal and business trips here. The accommodations are comfortable and the staff is caring and welcoming

Tiny rooms, Room service very limited and very slow. No Business Center! No idea why but terrible for business travelers. Door man was the only helpful staff member. Huge let down Kimpton! I expected more for a "Boutique" hotel in a great part of Chicago

Excellent location in the city. Very friendly staff. They serve coffee every morning and have a nice wine happy hour in the evening. I really enjoyed lounging in the lobby. The bar connected to the hotel has great drinks and tasty snall plates. I would definitely stay here again

Hotel Palomar is located in a fun and lively part of downtown. The lobby happy hour is great, always welcoming to myself and my adult children, with an extended gas fireplace warming the coldest winter days. The indoor pool and gym, both with gorgeous views, are luxurious. The staff brought cupcakes and wine for my birthday!

The room was beautiful and the staff was great-especially Blue. We enjoyed sipping wine in front of the fireplace during the free evening reception. Although we didn't bring our own dogs, this hotel is dog friendly. It was fun riding the elevator with 4 legged guests. Great place to stay in Chicago!
