I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t finish up my Chicago summary with a review of our hotel.
The Hotel Palomar: Chicago
Location: 505 North State Street
This recently completed hotel is planted in a perfect location. Right next to the red line giving you easy access to everything (and not having to carry luggage for several blocks after a flight), the hotel is perfectly positioned for people who want to experience the what the city has to offer and want to be tucked a few blocks away from the “Mag Mile” tourism.
Unlike other Palomar/Kimpton Hotels we have stayed out, this room was not the typical shoe-box space (big enough for a bed and a tv and nothing else). We had enough room for a real desk and an extra lounge chair. It was the perfect size. The hotel’s amenities included an indoor pool, a decent gym, outdoor lounge, and a nightly wine tasting.
This hotel enhanced our stay in Chicago, the staff was friendly, and the location was perfect. I highly recommend it.
