Let me start by saying the hotel is in a great location. The rooms are relatively spacious and clean. But we had some issues with the front desk staff. They were all perfectly nice and pleasant, but they just couldn't get things right. My wife is frequent business traveler and often stays at Kimpton Hotels. As such, when we checked...

Dear Alex_B_in_DC, Please allow me to apologize again for the challenges you experienced during your recent stay. If you recall, I (Adam Gurgiolo) am the one you spoke with on the morning of the final night of your stay, where we discovered the multiple, and one incorrect, authorizations on your credit card.

I stayed at the Palomar Chicago hotel for two weeks in celebration of my 49th birthday. I had a marvelous time! The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is a real gem. It's conveniently located to all the metro lines and in a very nice area of town. All of the staff members were friendly, professional and knowledgable....

I travel to Chicago frequently on business, and the Palomar is my first choice when the rates are reasonable (generally, when it's cold there). I stayed in a north-facing upper floor room, and it was one of the quietest and most comfortable rooms I have ever experienced. The bed and bedding are fantastic, the blackout drapes are completely effective, and...

Girlfriend and I stayed for a night out in the city. Wished we had more time to spend in the room now! Beds and pillows were top of the line. Their on-site restaraunt was amazing.

I can't say enough positive things about the Palomar-we had a girls weekend there and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a truly memorable weekend! Thanks Bleu, Selwig and Luke!
