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.

Hotel Palomar is one of the best hotels in Chicago! The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are nice and Sable restaurant is the best. We’ve used them for business dinners and hotel room blocks, we’ve never been disappointed!

The Palomar is perfectly located near everything- shopping, nightlife and restaurants. Plus- they have a complimentary happy hour each night in their lobby! I also have a professional connection to this hotel as I book a lot of meetings there. Their entire staff- sales, events, AV, etc are wonderful to work with and know how to execute flawless events. Our attendees specifically request this hotel. They never let us down! Read less

I'm a Chicago resident and have been to Hotel Palomar's restaurant, Sable, numerous times for delicious cocktails, so I was very excited at the idea for a staycation with friends at this wonderful property. The hotel is ideally situated right in the heart of downtown with so much to do at the hotel's doorstep, and easily connected by public transit. We got a chance to experience a warm welcome from the front desk, complimentary wine happy hour, some fun new cocktails and bites at Sable, and clean, spacious rooms. The pool looked amazing - I will have to try it next time! Thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay, looking forward to coming back! Read less

With all of us living 1-3 miles from the hotel, we knew this was a WONDERFUL choice to gather for a fun, safe social gathering and great cocktails (Sable). The service at the front desk was outstanding, the gentlemen greeting us at the door were nothing but friendly, our rooms were spacious and clean, and I continue to hold this hotel in high regard. Kimpton properties are always amazing, and I look forward to continuing to support this one in particular! Thanks for a great stay! Read less
