"Fine modern hotel a few blocks north of the river"
The Palomar has nice rooms and a friendly staff. The bar on the first floor has possibly the best selection of fine whisky in the city, and first rate food as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel- close to dining and stores"
I had a great time very hospitable, excellent and friendly staff- very clean rooms- I already recommended to another friend and will be looking to stay at all kimpton hotels throughout USAGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in a perfect spot"
We live in the city, and I work nearby. I chose this hotel for its location, because we wanted a night away and I wanted to see what it was like to be a visitor to the area. I had good reports about Kimpton properties, but the Palomar exceeded my expectations. Great building, beautiful decor in the room and the common areas, and even a great restaurant […] and bar. We didn't use the swimming pool or the fitness center, but they look great for their small sizes. If you need to stay in the downtown area-- especially if you have a pet-- this is the place you want.

"Can't wait to go back!"
LOVED IT! Had never been here before and it was outstanding! Staff was fantastic! This was a last minute trip, so we forgot a few things. Staff was right there to help. Gave great recommendations on places to go and what was open when. Sable (hotel restaurant) was THE BEST!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Went to see a Christmas play and did some shopping"
Overall I highly rate the Palomar. The staff was especially helpful. The room was very nice, clean and modern. They had wine in the lobby living room each night also hot chocolate and cider. Very homey yet a touch of elegance. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for a staycation."
Hotel was in a fantastic location. Very near many great restaurants. Staff was real helpful and accomodating. Would absolutely return at another time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff at front desk. Very helpful. Valet was courteous . Requested late check out at 1 and we're able to accommodate . Wine in eve and lemonade for kids was nice. Same for some good coffee and hit coco for kids in am. Heated lounge at the outdoor foyer was an icing on the cake!. One could hang out after s long day at the outdoor heated area and […] soak in the busy street life. Room was very clean. Only cons was the lack of a lock to the sliding bathroom door ( or maybe we missed it?) because it was a? Accessible room . Will be back! Close to everything and 2 blocks from Michigan ave.

"Great location, great service"
The staff was friendly and accomodating. The hotel offered hot cider and wine in the evening and coffee in the mornings which made our excursion out to the cold weather more bearable. On our last day, we came down to the lobby after the coffee station was cleared, but the staff offered to get us a couple of cups to-go no problem!Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location, great staff and business friendly property. The only complaint would be the rude doorman. Otherwise this is the best place to stay in the downtown Chicago area. Great for the rate, highly recommend it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous Place, Fabuolous Location"
Perfect!.... Best location in Chicago... can walk everywhere!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay in every way"
Our first stay in this hotel was terrific. Bobby the concierge checked us in and let us know that we had been upgraded to a corner view room and gave us very helpful restaurant advice since we were there early. The hotel is in a great location and every employee we interacted with was very nice and helpful. The complimentary evening wine and morning […] coffee and hit chocolate was a very nice touch. I highly recommend staying at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Palomar Hotel is a Keeper"
I'm a fan of the Kimpton hotels. I have found, however, they they are hit or miss. When they hit, is extraordinary. When they miss, I'm angry. The Palomar Chicago is a hit-- spacious room, friendly service, smartly accommodated, conveniently located. I was here for business, but I would certainly return for pleasure. Homerun!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Good Hotel"
Overall a very good hotel. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. We rented a suite. The room was very clean and the bathroom was great! It came with a very deep tub that can probably hold up to 4 people. It also had a nice shower. The living area of the suite was nice, but I was hoping it would have been a little bit larger. It had a sectional […] couch, a small coffee table, a desk and chair and one more chair in the corner. We had over a few guests and it seemed a bit cramped, but overall we were very satisfied and would recommend this hotel. Also, it is conveniently located with lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

"Very nice hotel, great location"
This is a terrific hotel - right in the middle of the city, directly by a train stop, and easy walkability to restaurants, Michigan Avenue and all the main sites. The hotel is quiet and comfortable and has a very nice staff, and the rooms are modern and large. The bed is a bit firm - that's the only complaint I have.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect place in Chicago"
Excellent concierge, free wine bar and coffee bar, heated outdoor seating and a cool lobby, great rooms and ammenities, clean, new, modern - the perfect place to stay in Chicago. We walked everywhere. Try Sunda for dinner (Asian fusion). Awesome stay with girlfriends - 4 of us in a room and was fine.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel. Great location."
I went to Chicago with girlfriends for a fun weekend getaway. Booked this hotel because of all the great reviews. We were very pleased when we first walked in and got very friendly service and a warm welcoming. We went to up to our room which was supposed to be a deluxe double full beds room- there were four of us. Room was smaller than we were expecting, […] but we were still happy with our room. As for the bad-called the front desk to get a rollaway. Not that I need to give the hotel staff any sort of explanations about our situation but one of us had food poisoning all day and after dealing with nausuea in the car ride, etc we decided one bed to the girl who kept throwing up and would not go out was appropriate. Anyway, whoever answered the phone was extremely rude. I asked if he could help us out with providing a rollaway since we could not accomodate ourselves in the 4 beds. A: It's four of you so you should fit and since you booked through a third party (Expedia) there really is nothing we can do other than provide you with the room. Me: Ok well is there any other way you could help us? A: Well we gave you the room that you booked. (That is not helping us btw, that is simply giving us what we paid for) Anything else you can help us with? A: no, it's a bummer. I thanked him for being very helpful and he hung up on me. WHAT?! We asked someone else and were then explained that because of the size of the room, rollaways were not permitted due to it being a fire hazard. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent stay at Hotel Palomar!"
Spent a few days there recently. The hotel is a clean, modern, comfortable facility in a great location. I purchased the room through Expedia, which stated that free wireless internet was included in the room rate. However, at the hotel I was charged for WiFi. Upon asking the front desk about it, they agreed to remove the charges but stated that free […] wireless internet was only for those who joined their loyalty program, and they also claimed it was listed in the conditions on my purchase. It was not. Read it no fewer than 10 times. Other than that little hiccup the stay was great! Be aware that this part of Chicago is one block from the downtown fire station and therefore sirens are audible in the room all times of day or night. This of course isn't the hotel's fault but it is prominent in the experience. I would happily stay at Palomar again. Actually tried to make another reservation but they are booked up!!!!

"Wonderful Staycation in Chicago"
Everything about the Palomar was above average. The hotel was modern, clean, and beautiful in a great location. Our room was outstanding. We were able to check-in early and leave our bags after check-out when we headed out for a day of walking around. Since it was our first wedding anniversary, the hotel left us a bottle of champagne with a sweet note. […] STAY HERE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome hotel right in the middle of it all."
Great restaurant attached. Bar has awesome service, huge blocks of ice for bourbon lovers. The rooftop terrace is not to be missed.Genuine Expedia guest review
The pictures of the hotel looked great and the location was perfect. However, my husband and I were disappointed that we received a handicap accessible room. My husband had difficult using the shower due to the placement of the handicap shower head The heat/ air worked poorly in our room and we found the air rather dry. Also I booked that specific hotel […] because it had a pool. Unfortunately when we went to swim the pool was closed. It was very disappointing. Several friends have raved about staying here and I have stayed in Kimpton Hotels and always enjoyed them. After this visit I will think twice about going with Kimpton.

"Nice hotel and staff"
Friendly staff, pleasant hotel. Sable restaurant was very good. Only negative is the location is very noisy, lots of street noise, made it hard to sleep well or late. Stayed at another hotel previously, which was quieter and a couple of blocks away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Kick back and watch the world go by or not"
There is a very attractive open sitting space before you enter ther hotel that is very inviting. . The rooms were stunningly appointed. I really enjoyed my room.I am very pleased with my stay here and would recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was very nice, as I would expect, but there was an outstanding person at the front desk who really helped us make the most of our 24 hours in Chicago. Great restaurant recommendations, helpful reservations, and her recommendation to purchase Aquarium tickets ahead of time made a huge difference to us under our time constraints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We will definitely stay there again. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Awesome! Will definitely be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are clean and staff helpful. Would have given a higher rating 5, but pool was a glorified lap pool in a hot steamy rooftop indoor area. Also, elevators were very slow and we did a lot of waiting. That's me being critical, but travelers need to know what to expect. I would stay again at the Palomar and remind the kids that the pool is not much […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel staff was very accommodating. They also made great recommendations on the area (which is refreshing). I have found that service during your stay can really make it or break it, and lucky for us they were great! Location is excellent!

Very nice room in a great location. Room tip: Gym and pool are on 17th Floor. We stsyed in 1720 which Was impacted by noise in AM when people started working out. If you want to sleep in consider a lower floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hip spot in the city"
Great kimpton hotel with spacious rooms, cool decor throughout. Nice wine hour with fruity sangria & pizzas - yum! ( Though a/c was cranked, for summer). Only downer was valet parking $58 ( published price says $48), this is higher than most hotels in Chicago. Cody gave excellent breakfast rec w/in walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just a great place overall to stay -- service was top notch without being fussy. I was traveling with 3 teenage boys and they thought it was great--and the hotel's resturant is very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
