Boutique Experience: Hotel Palomar, Chicago, IL


Boutique hotels have reclaimed the hearts of many, and Hotel Palomar is a shining example of the trend in downtown Chicago. Fitting right in among the theaters and city lights, Hotel Palomar is a funky and fun alternative to the boring hotel chain routine. Located in River North, this Kimpton hotel spares little when it comes to decor and ambience. But, don’t let the animal print rugs and edgy artwork fool you, Hotel Palomar offers luxury accommodations and added amenities to keep its guests happy and entertained.

The Kimpton chain of hotels definitely gives guests a little something outside of the ordinary. Daily wine hours in the lobby, a pet-friendly atmosphere and an overall sense of lighthearted enjoyment are all to be expected at the Palomar. Designer Orlando Diaz-Ozcuy is responsible for outfitting the guest rooms and suites, each with their own personal touch. If you’re looking for something outside of the box in Chicago, the Palomar will most likely fit the bill.
