“Made us feel special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We live in Chicago, but stayed here for a night for our anniversary. We were given complimentary champagne and upgraded to a spa king suite, which included a comfy and beautiful two-person spa tub. Delicious! The room was stylish, attractive, and comfortable. The robes were a nice treat, as were the snacks and wine at the manager's reception. All the folks who work there were lovely. The pool area looked great, but (and this is my only complaint) there is no hot tub. The spa in the room made up for it and more for us, but there really ought to be a hot tub...

Stayed at the Palomar April 9-11 with the family (kids 12 & 14). The hotel was very attentive to your request and just plain friendly! Pool on the 17th floor was great, too bad it was too cold to sit outside and enjoy the scenery. Have to tell you the Happy Hour each night was a pleasant surprise and the manager on duty was great to talk to and very friendly. The rooms were very nice and modern. Kids really like them. The location of the hotel can't be better, close to Michigan Avenue which besides shopping also gives you close access to just about every bus line you would want to get to things like Shedds Acquarium, the Museum of Science and Industry and other like places.

The restaurant onsite was a great appetizer place before we went out for the night, kid friendly and the food was very good. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a fair value, great service, friendly staff and close proximity to just about everything! Try the Weber Grill Restaurant right across the street, it was very good!

My husband and I spent 6 nights at the Palomar Hotel recently and had a delightful experience. The staff was friendly and greeted you upon entering the hotel as well as being well versed about local eateries and places that we should see. Every morning there was complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby and in the evening there a hosted wine hour. I worked out every morning in the above average fitness room and my husband swam in the pool. Everything was top notch and if we return to Chicago, we will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 10th floor and found it to be very quiet. The only complaint I heard was from a fel...

Just spent a weekend at the Palomar for my mom's 60th birthday! The hotel was great. Mentioned it was a special occasion and the Manager sent up treats to our room as well as a corner and larger room upgrade. Nice amenities as coffee in lobby and evening wine hour. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms - Great location to all Chicago has to offer.

This hotel's goal is to make sure their guests are happy. They have a nice wine happy hour with delicious appetizers from their restaurant. When you become a member of the Kimpton Hotel the owner they ask you for your pillow preference.
