Should you check into a hotel just for its swimming pool? In the case of Hotel Palomar Chicago, yes. Tucked away on the 17th floor, the cozy, glassed-in indoor pool area invites lingering on cold Windy City days. But a winter pool party isn't the only reason to stay here. As with every Kimpton hotel, the perks are great, including an evening wine hour and pet-friendly attitude. We've taken our pooch to numerous Kimpton properties, and he was always treated like a top dog. With an artsy River North location and on-site gastro-lounge, Sable Kitchen & Bar, this hotel is among our top choices for a stylish, well-priced Chicago stay.
