I was very well impressed from this Kimpton property. Looking for an accommodation during my recent Chicago visit I opted, with high expectations, for the Palomar also due to the previous reports. Well done guys!
Although from the outside the entrance is quite small and mostly busy with cars, as soon as you step inside you can feel a welcome calm. The sitting room, where the wine hour is hold as well as where tea and coffee is offered in the morning, is very well appointed and offers you a cosy place to relax or meet people. The front office staff is always smiling and ready to help. The room I had was just fantastic: it had a carpeted floor, it was big, bright, well soundproofed, nicely decorated and clean.
A funny touch was the bathrobes designed after a pet subject as well as a very much useful short umbrella that fits in all purses, backpack and travel bags.
The maid did a great job everyday, the Internet connection was solid throughout my stay day and night and the mini-bar was stocked to make your break a special one.
The bathroom was on marble providing Etro amenities and the shower had always a nice waterpower even during the morning *rush hour*.
The corridors are nicely decorated and the terrace on the last floor provides a corner for relaxation with a nice view over the city. The nearby swimming pool is just great for a tonic swim and although there is no a Spa, it looks like you can book Spa Services within the comfort of your room: I didn’t find much of infos about that though. The in-house Sable restaurant provides the room service and the breakfast buffet is also hold within its premises with a nice variety of cold and hot food. During the weekend a brunch replaces the buffet.
Without doubt I will be staying at the Palomar again if in town and I am more then confident to suggest this hotel to anyone for a great stay. 9 stars out of 10!
