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.

I don't know much about the nuances of operating a hotel but I do know great service, and the team at the Palomar Chicago property should bottle and sell what they serve.

I don't know much about the nuances of operating a hotel but I do know great service, and the team at the Palomar Chicago property should bottle and sell what they serve. From the front desk, bell captain, restaurant service (the breakfast potatoes are perfect), to housekeeping and front door attendants, they nailed it. Friendly (not overly), professional, helpful. I requested a feather free room (bad allergies) and it took longer than expected to prepare. I received a text to let me know when the room was ready, and an apology for the delay. My room was feather free and very clean. A handwritten note and a bowl of m&m's arrived shortly thereafter. Did they win me over? You bet. But it wasn't just that they treated me well. I watched, and they treat ALL hotel guests well. Read less

Arriving late and in the dark due to delays on route from airport, it was difficult to appreciate the hotel or it’s brilliant location in the River North area. Rooms are huge and corporate in style, bathrooms good - book a spa deluxe for large bath plus walk in shower. Woke up next morning to fantastic street view from 17th floor. The area around the Palomar is full of interesting shops, bars and restaurants and it’s within 10/15 minutes walk of the river, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile etc. The hotel maybe needs a little updating in some areas. However the restaurant area and lounge are comfortable, service is excellent and food really good; menus interesting and well priced. The wine hour each evening from 5pm was a welcome touch after a busy day seeing the sights. Read less

Coming after a Long day of work all I wanted was to get up to my room and relax. From the moment I pulled up I was taken care of and Brandon at the desk was quick and extremely helpful! Will definitely be back.

Yes! The entire staff managed to do it again! Honestly I can't say enough kind things about The Hotel Palomar but I'll try and be as descriptive as I can in this review. The Palomar in Chicago is truly my most favorite hotel in the city because everyone here goes out of their way to offer their unique sincere interest in making you feel SPECIAL. If you are an inner circle member or a Spire Elite member your room will definitely be upgraded depending upon room availability and the staff here will make sure to accommodate your special requests before and during your stay. Yesterday I celebrated Halloween by enjoying the King Premier Spa room which includes a jacuzzi bath for two. I highly recommend the King Premier room because the tub is incredibly relaxing especially now that Chicago is chillier again. I decorated my beautiful room with my own touches and settled in for a relaxing evening of long, unhurried baths. It was extremely decadent. Also it's so comforting to return to this particular hotel because I actually know some of the front desk staff because of my previous stays at other Kimpton hotels in Chicago. Mamadou took excellent care of me as usual and I've known him for many years back when The Hotel Burnham was still a part of the original group of Kimptons. There's nothing better than feeling perfectly pampered, comforted and cared for by a hotel staff that remembers each valued guest by name. I always feel perfectly at home here and I leave feeling refreshed and like I just stepped out of a Magical Portal. Read less
