This was our first time to stay at the Palomar, and it was a great experience for me and my family. We have previously stayed at Marriott Magnificent Mile and at the Sheraton Towers when traveling for business, but wanted to experience a boutique style hotel while visiting Chicago over Spring Break.
The Palomar's location was perfect for walking to restaurants, and using the public transit system. Only negative point of location was the sound of sirens in the middle of the night. Coming from a rural area where sleeping in silence is a given, be prepared for the periodic siren or car honk while sleeping. My wife says this is part of the urban vacation experience.
The entire hotel staff was very accommodating. The bell man brought a leopard print robe and a goldfish to our room for my son's use. It was obvious this hotel appreciates families visiting Chicago.
Our 11th floor room was meticulously clean and the housekeeping staff consistently put our room back together each day of our 3 night stay.
The indoor pool really was heated, and served as a great way for us to unwind at the end of each day.
Mentally, I have been accustomed to larger hotels with big, open common areas. The Palomar's reception room was quaint, comfortable, and adequately served it's guests.
Will we stay at the Palomar again? Absolutely, yes!
