4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The service was so professional and so gracious!! Everyone went out of their way to make my stay easy and comfortable with my 2 little doggies. The room was nice and the shower was amazing. Great city view, perfect location. I had less than 24 hours here but it was just absolutely a superb stay. Definitely will come back!

Amazing property. Excellent customer service. Perfect location. Enjoyed every minute. It is my third time staying there.

The attention to every detail is what I enjoyed. Housekeeping here is amazing the down to the elevator track being spotless. The doorman was super helpful with simplifying directions. Last but not least the front desk staff spot on with fast check in and super friendly.

Our bathroom was not clean upon check in, but the front desk staff moved us to another room immediately.

Overall it was great! Staff texted right after check in to ask if we needed anything, and after check out to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Fantastic location, near everything we wanted to do (e.g. theater, shopping). My only complaint was with the description of the room. I couldn’t really tell what kind of bathtub it had and ended up accidentally selecting the wrong one. Clearer demarcation would be helpful.

Great location, clean and nice staff. Elevators are a bit slow.

Great location and wonderful staff. This is a great place to stay.

Great weekend stay at Kimpton Palomar. Close to many attractions and transportation available nearby as well. Only complain would be that I thought I had a room with a view and was given a room in the 5th floor. The walls appeared paper thin, but did not spent much time in room so this was not an issue. Overall I would come back to this hotel.

Everything is perfect at the Palomar: location, staff, facilities, rooms, lobby, restaurants and bar! Rates are more reasonable than even less quality hotels. It feels like home staying there. You're right in the middle of everything cool to in Chicago. Practically across the street from the Magnificent Mile! Around the corner from the Billy Goat Tavern. What could be better. Once you stay here, you'll realize there is no better place to stay.

From the front desk and bell staff to the fabulous bartenders at the adjacent Sable bar and restaurant, the service and attention was excellent. we stay annually for our anniversary and the outcome is consistent. The location is close to awesome restaurants and night life. We’ll be back...again.

Great location in the river north area. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, but the best part? The proximity to bars, shops, restaurants, sights and things to do. Fantastic location was a huge bonus.

Staff was amazing, loved happy hour, room was excellent, enjoyed bicycles

Excellent location - near restaurants, bars. Nice pool - Kids had lot of fun Awesome Outdoor terrace - great place to relax and enjoy the views

Great location and highly recommended! The room is a little bit small, but does have everything I need.

We were able to check in early, the staff was very friendly. Great location for walking in many of the downtown neighborhoods. Large (for Chicago) room with good amenities. We had a very nice getaway weekend.

Location was great. Close to many great restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. Hotel lobby was small, but chic. Nice evening wine hour with small bites . Pool area was very nice, but heated pool temp. was a little too cool. Room was clean and modern, only downside was we were awakened 4-5 times by sirens blaring on the street below. Check in/ out was smooth, but for a lasting impression of the hotel the staff could smile a little and be friendlier.

The hotel was nice and it was in a good location. There was no fridge or coffee maker in the room and the bathroom sink was dirty. That is why I didn't give it a 5.

Great place to stay. Staff members are friendly and helpful.
