Great hotel, but oh what a bar

January in Chicago is a time for deals and this was an excellent one. Excellent price on a hip, comfortable hotel. Nice touches with the happy hour and snacks in the lobby. Friendly staff. But the bar!!!! The best cocktails in Chicago I've had. Amazing whiskey selection. We never ventured off of the appetizers and we happy we did not. New cocktail, new appetizer.

Go to the Donut Vault for breakfast. Get when it opens or you will be out of luck. These are the best tasting donuts I've ever had and I consider my self a man that appreciates fried dough.

Wonderful hotel

The Palomar was an excellent hotel! Great location, in fact, it is perfect location to mass transit (across the street), on the route for free trolley to Navy pier (comes by every 15 minutes), in the heart of downtown. Really enjoyed the 5 pm wine tasting and wonderful coffee in the morning. We loved everything about the hotel and now fans of Kimpton Hotels! My advise is to STAY at the Palomar. We loved it.

Explore Chicago

This is a great, affordable boutique hotel in a very central location of Chicago. The rooms are well designed (with the exception of the bathroom doors, which can not be fully closed, but the hotel management is currently fixing that) and very clean with extraordinarily comfortable beds. We also enjoyed the view of the city from our room on the 14th floor. The gym is fantastic, equipped with brand new Precor machines, including ellipticals, adaptive motion trainers, treadmills, stationary bikes (all with TV monitors), a Concept 2 PM 4 rowing ergometer, weights, medicine and swiss balls. There is enough room to do stretching and floor exercises, and the place is superclean. We did not use the pool, which is indoors, but it seemed long enough for lap-swimming, and was adjacent to the rooftop terrace where one can bake in the sun to dry off, or just sit and read. The staff was very helpful and overall extremely friendly. The hotel has a restaurant and bar, where they serve delicious food, although it's a bit pricey. In the morning free coffee is served in the "living room" for three hours, and in the afternoon there is a wine-tasting hour. From the hotel you can easily walk to the magnificent mile, Millenium park, and also to boat tours and bike rental places. We really enjoyed our 5-day stay at the Palomar and would recommend it highly to other travelers.

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.

We only stayed one night. The room was great. The location was within walking distance to everything as long as the ladies in your party weren't in uncomfortable shoes. Just a pleasent experience with great staff.

Wonderful hotel, Perfect Location

This hotel had everything - it was perfectly situated in the River North area - close to great restaurants, shopping, bars, next to the Gold Coast, a short walk to the Navy Pier, beach, etc. We were upgraded to a suite - the bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was great (large shower and jet tub). The staff was so friendly and the hotel restaurant/bar was great. We spend a lot of time there! Would definitely go back again!
