The Palomar is in a great location near Michigan Ave. and good restaurants. The bar in the hotel has a great atmosphere and great cocktails. One bartender was quite the mixologist. Did not have an opportunity to try the restaurant but heard it is quite good. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are large with nice bathrooms.

I loved the fireplace in the downstairs lounge and the amazing restaurant. The room was great, a corner room with large windows. If you request a city view ask for a high floor to make the most of it. Staff was always courteous and helpful. The restaurant, Sable, is so good we cancelled another reservation to dine there twice. Good...
