Nice hotel, amazing service!!

We grabbed 2 rooms, one for my family (2 queen) and one for my Father (1king) for his 70th birthday. I mentioned this at check in and they gave him a card for 2 glasses of Champagne and a desert at the restaurant. The next day he also received a bottle of wine a some snacks. They go above and beyond! Everyone seemed to be enjoying their jobs. Can't recommend this property enough!

Great, clean, hotel. Kid friendly.

We just came in for the night for Thanksgiving and had a great stay at the Palomar. Staff is super friendly. Gave our three girls welcome bags with activities when we arrived. Parking was a little pricey, but it is downtown Chicago. Room was really clean.

We will definitely return!

Great place! This was our first trip to Chicago and we are sure to return. In addition to being in a great central location; this chic hotel exceeded our expectations all around. As soon as you enter a beautiful aroma fills the air. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are so so pretty and so so clean! We stayed on the 17th floor with a city view. While your're there be sure to visit the lobby for wine time from 5pm - 6pm. Additionally...this hotel is pet friendly! I can't wait to get back there.

Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location!!!!

Pros: Location!!!
Cons: N/A
Location: Everything........restaurants, entertainment, bars, shopping!!!!
After a lot of research online for the perfect hotel to celebrate our anniversary, this will be our go to hotel every time we are in Chicago. We stayed in the Mosaic suite and had the entire 6th floor to ourselves. Complimentary bottle of wine and fruit was brought to our room to celebrate our anniversary. I think I may have said one thing about it being our anniversary to the person checking us in(Luis?) and I didn't make a big deal about at all. Was an awesome surprise! The patio area on the 17th floor was amazing, only wish we had more time to enjoy it. Two minor negatives to minimal to even mention in detail. Love this place!

Perfect Location

Pros: Excellent staff, complimentary am coffee, wine hour and daily refreshments.
Cons: I really dislike shower curtains, our toilet was not cleaned upon check in, as they had a room for us at 8:00am we really couldn't complain.
Location: Red line train and shuttle are steps away. Eataly, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Starbucks, CVS, array of restaurants within walking distance.
This hotel is convenient to all points of interest in Chicago. We walked everywhere and took an uber when we had to. Every staff member we encountered is extremely accommodating and very pleasant/helpful, they had a room ready for us at 8:00am upon arrival and allowed us to check out at 2:00pm - this was the best service we've had! Having fresh coffee in lobby every morning (instead of in-room coffee machine) was such a treat - coffee is great too! We will certainly stay here again, the location is perfect, just pack walking shoes and hit the beautiful surrounding areas. We absolutely love it!

Perfect hotel in the middle of EVERYTHING!

Pros: Pretty much everything!
Cons: Faster elevators
This was my first time in Chicago and this hotel made it awesome! Being from Las Vegas, NV I have some pretty high standards for hotels and Palomar blew me away! Great room amenities, a wonderful pool and outdoor deck, and the best part a happy hour with free wine! The staff was awesome with directions, hooked us up with a late check out, and even gave us bottles of water for our long walk they knew we were about to embark on! This hotel is in a great location, right on the edge of the magnificent mile and just over the bridge a few blocks away you start to hit all the big parks and sights like the Chicago theater, the Art Institute, and even cloud gate (the big bean as I kept calling it!).
