Large guest rooms with ample amenities
No on-site business center
Two blocks west of The Magnificent Mile and four blocks north of the Loop, the Kimpton Palomar Chicago is a convenient lodging choice for sightseers. This Kimpton hotel offers easy access to some of the Windy City's most popular attractions. But there's more to this hotel than its location. Previous guests praise the rooms, describing them as spacious and comfortable with floor-to-ceiling windows, a number of varied pillow styles, Frette linens and artwork inspired by the Chicago World's Fair. Although you'll be surrounded by the numerous eateries of Chicago's Near North area, some guests recommend trying the New American cuisine served at the trendy Sable Kitchen & Bar. Recent travelers also loved the wealth of freebies provided in the lobby, including complimentary coffee in the morning and wine tastings in the evening. And the service staff – from the concierge to the housekeeping employees – earns high marks as well. Members of the IHG Rewards Club can earn benefits, like complimentary Wi-Fi, by choosing to stay here.

Its lovely indoor pool with a sundeck and its free nightly wine hour are both highlights, and the big, stylish rooms are equipped with iPod docks, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, and Etro bath toiletries.



The bathrooms feel vaguely Zen, with spartan countertops and marble Jacuzzi tubs in the suites.

Chicago Tribune


Rooms are larger (they start at 325 square feet) and come outfitted in a palette of gold and cranberry with blue and white linens.



The eclectic American fare at its restaurant, Sable Kitchen & Bar, appeals to foodies, many of whom are local, stopping in for a meal or a drink after work.
