Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Staying at the Palomar Chicago, in the artistic River North neighborhood, places guests just three blocks from The Magnificent Mile and four blocks from The Loop. The AAA 4-Diamond hotel is ideally located for those in town to experience Chicago’s best shopping, nightlife and cultural offerings like the Art Institute of Chicago. Although the property is near some of the best restaurants in town, many guests stay on-site and enjoy dinner at Sable Kitchen & Bar where the 16-page drink menu and elevated gastropub dishes earned a spot on Food & Wine’s “Chicago Restaurant Insider Picks.”

The hotel caters to all guests including kids with in-room safety kits and rentable strollers as well as pets with amenities like no size restrictions, dog beds and treats. For those forced to leave their furry families members at home, the hotel’s “Guppy Love” program provides goldfish in rooms. Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, pillow menus and artwork inspired by the Chicago World's Fair.

Extravagant textures like honeycombed crimson velvet walls, gauzy white drapes and gilded accents are found in guest rooms as well as the sundrenched lobby which hosts a complimentary nightly wine hour around its glass-enclosed fireplace.

The top floor is home to the property’s heated pool, enclosed in glass for year-round use. In addition to a 24-hour fitness center, every room includes a yoga mat and guests can attend rooftop barre classes or take a morning run with the hotel’s manager.
