Positive Reviews

The pool is fabulous

Set on the 17th floor, the indoor heated swimming pool at Kimpton Palomar Chicago boasts fantastic views. Enjoy a morning swim before you hit the city's attractions or take in the twinkling lights as the sun goes down in this much-loved area of the hotel. Many guests enjoy using this pool and like the way the fitness center and terrace are all available by the pool as well.

It has an excellent location

Situated just three blocks from the Magnificent Mile, you'll be able to stroll to shops, restaurants and bars with ease and take in everything the Windy City has to offer. Many guests mention that great places to eat are just a couple of minutes away on foot and that the hotel is well placed to be able to access great attractions either by walking or by using the efficient public transport.

The staff is second to none

Receiving fantastic feedback from many satisfied guests, this team has a can-do attitude that will get you checked in, settled and comfortable efficiently and without hassle. Members of staff are noticeably professional and clearly enjoy what they do, with many guests commenting on how friendly and helpful they are.

Negative Reviews

Some were not impressed with their room's views

Situated in the heart of downtown Chicago, Kimpton Palomar Chicago is surrounded by other buildings and as such does not always provide sweeping views from its rooms. This was disappointing to some guests.

There are no coffeemakers in rooms

Unfortunately, some guests were disappointed that their rooms did not come with coffeemakers, although they are provided upon request.

The lobby can be cramped

A very small number of guests have mentioned that the hotel lobby is a little small and can feel cramped during busy times.
