A truly splendid stay! From the cocktail vouchers, to the nice smell on your way in, the friendly staff with great love all suggestions...This was my first Kimpton stay and certainly won't be my last! Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed here the weekend before Valentine's day, and it was packed! but, even still, the wait at the front desk was short, the staff was super friendly (our two and a half year old loved one of the doormen who went out of his way to make her laugh whenever he saw her-- thanks, Blu!). They...

I love the Kimpton chain and always seek out Kimpton Hotels when I travel. The rooms in this hotel are beautifully designed with floor to ceiling windows and stylish built in furniture. The bed was comfortable. The desk was comfortable and functional. The hotel has a nice pool and gym on the top floor. The pool is lovely with a...

After attending meetings all week long, my husband surprised me by getting us a room at the Palomar. I was skeptical since I never stayed at a Kimpton property before. We arrived in the evening around 5pm. There was a huge crowd in the lobby area drinking wine. We were informed at the front desk it was wine hour. Wait...

The staff at Palomar were second to none - from the doormen, to the front desk - everyone was so welcoming - more so than most of the hotels I've ever stayed at. The room was very big for such an excellent location, was well designed, and was clean. After staying at a number of other Chicago hotels, we noticed...

The folks at Palomar Chicago really outdid what we expected going in. My SO and I do "staycations" in Chicago a couple times a year rather than spend a lot on travelling, and we like to check out different hotels in the downtown area. This was the first that definitely warranted coming online to review! We got a Suite Steal...

I stayed here one night in December. I ended up using my free night reward with my Kimpton Karma rewards. I found a parking garage nearby and check in was seamless. I loved the room. It was so comfortable. I ended up getting room service and I enjoyed that as well. I didn't do much walking around the neighborhood. Overall...

Just returned from an overnight in the city with my daughter and her friend. We can't see enough great things about the Kimpton Palomar and how nicely we were treated by Mark and his front desk staff. We got the Dylan's candy tour package and that was a huge hit with the teenage girls.The hotel is very centrally located and...

A perfect, walkable location to the Magnificent Mile without that pricing. I signed up for their rewards program where you select preferences and they were fulfilled upon arrival; corner room away from elevators and feather pillows. The room was newly renovated, clean, spacious and what a view! So many great restaurants all close by. Our daughter decided to join us...
