Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago

Chicago, USA

The hotel

Anyone wishing for a sophisticated and calming approach to accommodation in Chicago should look no further than the Palomar which rates guests' well-being and comfort levels just as seriously as the stylish interior décor. The hotel offers just that little bit extra with personalised in-room Yoga sessions on the TV or perhaps you would prefer an early morning jog? Of course, you don't have to jog to be able to enjoy the sights and guests staying at the Palomar will be pleased to learn that River North, Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile are all within walking distance. Further fabulous fitness facilities come in the form of the hotel's indoor heated swimming pool and 24-hour gym which are both guaranteed to help you work up an appetite just in time to check out the gastro-lounge dishes at the Sable Kitchen & Bar. What with in-room dining options and complimentary wine tasting sessions every day at 5.00pm, it's a wonder that you'll find the time to set foot outside however, it would be rude not to so this is your chance to give the Windy City a whirl.

We stayed there last summer for a Cubs game and I left some clothes in the room on a dress. Nice designer items. They were there when we arrived and not when we left and I never really got any cooperation from the hotel ;(.

The hotel is in a great location. The staff is warm and welcoming. The front desk gave great information about the area. Love the nightly wine hour. The room is spacious and nicely decorated. The mattress and pillows were not too comfortable. However, I will stay here again.

I was in a pinch to find a good deal at a nice hotel for my stay in Chicago and was lucky enough to book a great stay at the Kimpton Palomar. The staff at this hotel is great, all the agents were very friendly, and the bell service and valet were as well--very helpful not to mention! I personally enjoyed the location most of all. Very accessible to public transportation and right in the heart of the city. Like most hotel stays, I hit the gym after a long day of work, and I loved the view thi gym had. It's on the top floor so you get a birds-eye view of downtown Chicago. Read less

I just returned from a three-night stay and found it to be one of the most memorable in my many visits to Chicago. The atmosphere, accommodations and service were exceptional. I easily and safely walked between the 900 block of Michigan Avenue and across the river to the theater district. Front desk and concierge services were readily available by text: I loved that. My spacious room was spotless, complete with requested coffee service, a safe, and better lighting than most. There was even lighting that dimmed in the bathroom for nighttime and atmosphere, as well as a make-up mirror that was well placed and adjustable even for a more petite woman. The powerful shower and luxury toiletries were perfect. But most commendable were the staff members. I felt as though I was staying in a luxury condo with my own doorman, who respectfully noticed my comings and goings. A special shout-out and thank you to Miguel, Mark and Blue! Read less

Amazing hotel with a super friendly staff and prime location with access to go anywhere. Smooth check in. Clean and spacious room. Have to give a big shout out to Sarah at the front desk who couldn’t have been more helpful and kind. When I come back to Chicago, I will certainly be staying here again.
