Our family just returned from a night at the Palomar. It exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our trip. Beautiful facility and we were able to check in very early. With 3 kids under 9 years old, this was SO helpful! Will definitely return. They were very friendly and welcoming to children even though the hotel is geared...

I've stayed in several hotels in Chicago and this is one of the nicest. The rooms are spacious and decorated well. Everyone we encountered at the door from valet to bellman very friendly and accommodating. Few complaints though- left our room at 10 a.m.the first day and no one ever came to clean (highly unusual). Was given 2 complimentary wine...

I've stayed in the Palomar a few times now and always spend time there when my parents come to the city. They are also regular Palomar frequenters! The rooms are smart and clean, as are the amenities. The room that houses the pool has fantastic views of River North but the pool itself is freezing. I've been told by others...

Kimpton Palomar in Chicago is a great place to stay. The staff is extraordinary and works hard to make your stay the best it can be. The hotel is close to excellent dining options. It also is a short walk from Michigan Avenue shopping. The rooms were modern, comfortable and clean. The lobby was a good pace to hang out...

Our Queen/Queen room was a bit tight with my husband and two boys. I would have asked about availability of a larger room but it wasn't that big an issue. The staff were friendly and courteous, as we have experienced at other Kimpton properties. The property is in a great Chicago location.

Stayed here at the recommendation of a friend. Very happy with accommodations, staff and location. Pool was lovely, too but I forgot my swimsuit. We will definitely come back when in Chicago. We dined at restaurants that were close. They were excellent.

Mr Ancona, Friday we arrived at your hotel prior to the check in time. Mark politely had our bags checked and asked for our numbers so we could explore the city until our room was available. He sincerely asked and intently listened as to what brought us to Chicago. This set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Returning...

For a winter weekend staycation, I opted to stay at the Palomar. Location is great, the property is beautiful (I'm aways a fan of Kimpton hotels), but what really made this stay a memorable one was their concierge Mark. I'm always one to utilize a concierge and his insider knowledge about where to dine and what to see was something...

We had a lovely overnight stay here on a cold Chicago night. The hotel is in a great location, and the staff was very friendly. The front desk employees were welcoming to the whole family. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. The indoor pool and wine hour are a plus.

The staff was awesome. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Always available to help recommend restaurants, with gifts for the kids. They even brought a goldfish to our room! They got us a SUV sedan for the airport costing the same as a taxi! Thanks. Our experience was great. Would definitely stay here again. Room was very clean.
