They really helped me out with a mistake I had made, and the staff were all wonderful as usual. Only thing I would change is to put pool temp at the 84-85deg allowed.

The hotel and staff was very nice! The refrigerator in our room wasn’t working and they brought up another one without any hesitation.

The jacuzzi tub in the standard suite was fantastic. It was big and it worked perfectly. If you're looking for a room with a jacuzzi in Chicago, this is the hotel to stay at

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.
