Fabulous Hotel

We had a fantastic stay over Easter weekend. The hotel is in an excellent location with super easy access to the subway. The room was very nice; we were on the 14th floor with an awesome city view. Make sure to get the cucumber and lemon ice water in the lobby to refresh you after a day of touring around the city. The hotel is excellent, but the best part of our stay was definitely the staff. From the check in, everyone was friendly, helpful, and had a smile. Jean Luc is a wonderful bell hop who we got to know pretty well on the elevator, the entrance, and the bar. Don't miss the cocktails in Sable, the bar. They're pricey, but worth EVERY PENNY!!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Instead of costly cabs, use the subway on State/Grand. A 7 day unlimited pass is only $28, and a 3 day is about $14. A cab ride for 2 anywhere costs at least $10 with a tip. We got 7 day passes even though we were only there 5 days. (You can use it to get to either airport as well!)

excellent location for sight seeing

The hotel is excellent, very large modern rooms. Great lobby for relaxing, close walking distance to all downtown attractions. Front desk staff extremely helpful. Really fun bar as part of hotel. Suitable to all ages but crowd seemed to be mainly 30 plus. There were also some kids in the hotel.

The architural walking tour was very informative. Located across from art museum. Not expensive. GAGE resturant is close by as well for great pub style food.

Wonderful hotel!

We can't find a single thing to complain about for our four-night stay. The location was perfect for riding the Red Line north to Wrigley Field or south to the Millenium Park area. The room was spotless. Despite construction nearby, we heard very little city noise. The staff, including valet captain, concierge and front desk were always helpful. And why not wind down in the afternoon with a lemonade or glass of wine in the lobby? This is our second stay at a Kimpton hotel, and it won't be our last.

Great hotel in a convenient location

Rooms and staff are phenomenal. The business center arrangements are fairly awful though. I was charged almost $30 to print a few simple documents.

LOVED THE PALOMAR HOTEL

We lucked up and got a "choice" corner room, which was even larger than the original one. The service was excellent from start to finish. Chic, but yet had a comfortable, welcoming feel. Don't have one bad thing to say! Would highly recommend to anyone.
