fabulous stay!

This was an absolutely wonderful hotel and stay in Chicago! Perfect location, beautiful room, great staff and wine happy hour was lovely! The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because there was no closet or place to hang up clothes!

Definitely worth it

Stayed in a room on the 15th floor right across from the elevators and had no issues with noise the entire week of our stay. Staff is very accommodating. Loved it!

Perfect hotel in perfect location

For two couples in Chicago for the weekend, this hotel had a great location close to shopping and dining. The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer and were extremely anxious to help in any way. Rooms were super clean and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay and well recommend to anyone travelling to Chicago.

Clean respite from Taste of Chicago

My husband and I stayed at the hotel Palomar for 4 nights from June 25 to June 29, 2010. Overall, for about $150/night, our stay was great. The bathrooms were clean, spacious and convenient. The sliding door does not close completely. The bed was wonderful. The decor was decidely minamalist and modern. The staff were very helpful in purchasing tickets for us, answering our questions and polite. Now for some small annoyances and complaints: We were staying on the 12th floor and we could still hear sirens every night. I guess it was just the location of the hotel, but it was still annoying. Also, somebody stole a bottle of wine from our honor bar and we were charged for it. They fixed the charge quickly with no hassle. But really? A thief among their staff? Having previously stayed at a Hotel Monaco in downtown San Francisco, I had high expectations of the staff. Although they were effcient and sometimes friendly, I didn't feel as if they were particularly welcoming, which was a little strange to me. There wasn't always someone at the door to open it. And they didn't ask if we needed help with our luggage. I guess that shouldn't be expected at this price point, but I was under the impression that it was a four star hotel. In any case, we still had a great time.

Hotel Palamar

Really nice hotel. Relaxing lobby area and great restaurant off the lobby. Pool is modest but at least there is one. Rooms are small but very sharp and clean.

Excellent hotel in excellent location

Excellent location. Very clean hotel. Staff were very receptive to questions and concerns. I would definitely stay there again. The room seemed a little small (but probably was average compared to other rooms in similar hotels).

Great hotel

It's very rare even in high rated hotels is that the room immaculate; temperature control perfect; beds, towels, and linens smooth and plush. We were delighted with this hotel, and would definitely stay here again. Great location, too. Only downside was noise during the night, but it is a big city. There was wine in the afternoon and coffee in the morning. We also ate at the restaurant next door and it was great, too.

Brilliant stop over

We had stayed at Palomar hotels before so knew what to expect and weren't disappointed in any way. The staff were brilliant nothing was too much trouble,room lovely and location was great with plenty of excellent restaurants close by ,the best of which is the hotel one,The Stables ,where the food is fantastic and staff very knowledgable,brunch is a great experience but for evenings book in advance if you want the restaurant but otherwise you can eat the same food in the fun,busy bar, We would definitely use this hotel again.
