Located between Illinois and Grand on State Street Palomar is located in a fantastic area for shopping, restaurants and bars. Outside the entrance is seating under heat lamps. If the weather is agreeable it's a nice place to sit. Check in was quick and room was ready early. We had a luxury one bedroom unit. Large living area with desk,...

This was our first stay at a Kimpton hotel. It was great. Service excellent and upgraded us to a suite. They did say they will do that if available. Great bonus with kids. Loved happy hour and the hot chocolate. Probably should of had more pizza but oh well. Great hotel.

I stayed at the Hotel Palomar in Chicago due to their pet friendly policy-which was the only positive of the whole stay. They had some sort of "Good Times" convention or event which was made up of hundreds of loud, crazy mainly inconsiderate teenagers who took over the hotel, trashed the lobby and clogged the elevators (all 2 of them)...

Great location right in the Loop. Loved the Art Deco design! We had a deluxe room that was very quiet; the tall ceilings help with the noise. The hotel has a great bar on the lobby floor, and the service was classic Kimpton.

We were over NYE. The hotel was extremely busy. But they managed to keep things running smoothly. They even were thoughtful enough to send cupcakes to my cousin's room for her birthday. She had called in a week or so before our arrival and mentioned she was going to be in town for NYE and to celebrate her birthday. To...

Terrific bar, decent restaurant and helpful staff. Comfortable contemporary rooms. I often stay at Kimpton hotels and this is my favorite of the 3 I've stayed at; this is the most modern. I've had good service every time and probably stay there 3+ times a year. What really sold me on the place was receiving an upgrade (unrequested) when I...

Great mid-range boutique hotel that feels like a luxury hotel. Perfect location that's close to Michigan Ave, the Theater district, and downtown nightlife. Comfy and stylish rooms with modern bathrooms (I booked 2 months in advance and got a great deal on a 16th floor room). Had a FANTASTIC dinner at the in hotel restaurant, Sable. Friendly and accommodating staff....

We stayed in this hotel over Christmas break for a mini staycation as we live in the Chicago suburbs. We had a 1 bedroom suite and it sure was SWEET! It's about 3x the size of a regular room since the bathroom is inbetween the 2 rooms and is ginormous. We traveled with children and they loved the rooftop pool...

What a great hotel!!! The service is wonderful, friendly and sweet. This experience was from check in to check out. The room was wonderful. The entire wall was floor to ceiling windows which led to fun people watching. It was gave us great lighting. We asked for a high floor in our reservation and we were given the highest floor...

The Palomar is a modern sleek hotel in the very popular Near North area of downtown Chicago. It's located conveniently close to the Loop and the Magnificent Mile shopping area. It's also close to the Red line el train. The hotel seems to be in a new building (as of Dec. 2016 when I'm writing this) which also is a...
