Weekend Out

Would recommend Tue, Sep 15, 2015
Great place to stay in River North section of Chicago. I've been staying at the Palomar since it was built, and I love going back, but even cheap hotels have free wireless and coffee makers in the rooms. C'mon guys....

Excellent hotel with a couple of caveats

Would recommend Tue, Aug 18, 2015
I'd definitely recommend a stay at the Palomar. It is ideally located, a beautiful hotel and the staff could not do enough for us. Saturday evening there was free wine and the hotel bar had a great atmosphere. Just a couple of nits to pick. There was no coffee maker in our room. Not a huge problem given free coffee is available in the lobby, but something to bear in mind. The pool area is a bit of a disappointment. The pool is very small and had so many children playing in it that it was not possible to swim. The lack of a hot-tub is a real let-down. Finally, the walls of the rooms are very thin. There was a family with young children in the room next to ours and we could hear them screaming and shouting early each morning. Overall, though, I really liked the hotel.

Would stay here again : )

Would recommend Mon, Jun 15, 2015
The Hotel Palomar came recommended to us by a dear friend, she told me how kind and attentive the staff are, how updated/modern and clean the rooms are and that I'd love it! And we did!! : ) Upon speaking to the concierge (after I made my reservations) I was telling him how excited I was to be surprising my Hubby with this little getaway for his birthday and our Anniversary. He was so kind! He had a complimentary bottle of wine and box of chocolates sent to the room for us with a congratulations card. Every time we passed a staff member in the hotel, we were kindly greeted and made sure our stay was going perfectly. The beds are super comfy and I loved the city view out of the floor to ceiling windows. Ooh! And there is a heated outdoor seating area in the front of the hotel, perfect for the cold rainy night we experience in the city. I also enjoyed the fresh fruit water that was setting in the entrance. Oh! And check out the bottled water in the fridge. It won't disappoint. Happy Staying : )

Business Trip

Would recommend Mon, May 25, 2015
Simply put, the only place I will now stay in Chicago is the Hotel Palomar. I have now stayed there twice, once for business and once for 4-day pleasure trip. Both times, it far surpassed my expectations in every category. Staff is outstanding, the rooms are incredible (including an almost cloud-like bed that is ridiculously comfortable), the location perfect. I'm working on trying to get to Chicago here in the summer of 2015....undoubtedly I will be staying at the Palomar.

Awesome night downtown

Would recommend Wed, Feb 18, 2015
I came down here with my wife for valentines day and was very impressed with the hotel. Rooms are clean and well decorated. Our bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The bar on the first level was great and had a number of interesting drink options. Overall, we had a great visit and would come back again.

Great room

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
Nice room, wish I had spent more time in it on new years eve. It was big with a little seating area and a huge bed. The jacuzzi tub, and the whole bathroom for that matter, was really nice. Expensive but probably worth it if you have the money.

Nightlife hint

The jacuzzi tub is actually nice

Lovely Getaway

Would recommend Fri, Oct 17, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at the Palomar. Location is walking distance from great eats and shopping. Staff made our stay even better. They go out of their way to make guests feel comfortable. They are always ready to please and help. Concierge (Bobby) was awesome! Bobby’s customer service skills are exceptional. You will not be disappointed with the Palomar.
