Once again had a wonderful stay at the Palomar. From the super quick, friendly check in to the complementary wine and flat bread pizza from 5:-6:00., a great experience. Room was spotless as always. Was upgraded to a city view room, no charge. My favorite hotel in Chicago.

I have high standards and wasn't sure what to expect when we chose to stay at a "boutique" hotel. However, they have good reviews and we got the room at a nice discount/promotion they had at the time. I should *not* have worried! Room (standard 2 queen bed) was as expected- clean, nice decor, average size for being in a...

As first time visitors to Chicago we relied heavily on the recommendations of others on trip adviser and we were not let down.
