    10 minutes walk from Grand tube station. We really loved Kimpton Palomar Chicago. John hancock center was within a 15-minute walk from this hotel: )

    Absolutely nothing.

    It was very quiet in the hotel. Although we could hear the fire truck and ambulance siren every night, probably unavoidable in a dense city setting. The front desk staff was very professional and the hotel itself was quite clean. We really enjoyed the location of the hotel, within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to see.

    Great, thorough and attentive staff, convenient Water stationin the adjacent reception room in Lobby, comfy rooms, nice deck area. The 5 PM wine tasting/reception was a nice touch of class, I invited my relatives who happened to be in town to join us for that. Very classy. Jean Luc went out of his way to help us retrieve stored bags and with getting a cab on our departure day. Everyone on staff was attentive, friendly and informative.

    Thought the pool would be larger, nicer. Otherwise very nice.
