Hotel Palomar Chicago
I am not sure I will always share my thoughts about a hotel on here, usually just attractions we visit, but occasionally I will share about a hotel especially if we stay at one that is really worth telling about and the Hotel Palomar in Chicago is just that.
Hotel Palomar is a Kimpton boutique hotel. There are Palomars in other cities and other Kimpton's in Chicago, but what you need to know, there is really where the similarities lie as they are all individual and unique boutique hotels. This was the 3rd Kimpton we have stayed in (also Vero Beach, FL and River Place in Portland, OR) and we hope to stay in more of them. We have been very happy with this hotel company.
Anyways, I wanted to point out a few special things about Hotel Palomar. First of all, we had told them we would be celebrating our son's birthday while we were there so they set out all the snacks & drinks you see pictured above for all of us to enjoy (wine for mom and dad), plus they had little gift bags with items (like a small beach ball) to occupy the kids.
On another night, the delivered milk and cookies to the kids, which was really awesome. We stayed here 3 nights and were very happy.
The pool is lit up blue at night and off from the pool is an outdoor terrace with lots of seating and the wonderful nightline sky view you see pictured above.
Also, every evening they have a FREE wine hour from 5-6pm (every Kimpton does this but will vary with what they include) that included wine, lemonade and flat bread pizza. The picture above is of my son sitting there eating a snack and lemonade from the wine hour.
You should check out the other Kimpton Hotels where ever you are traveling and sign up for their Karma Rewards, which gets you free wifi, a birthday coupon, $10 raid-the-bar credit plus more just at the beginning level and then if you stay enough nights/places/stays, over time you will earn free nights.
