If you are looking for a lavish hotel in Chicago for your wedding, bachorlette party or other event look no further than Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago! This downtown hotel has a chic vibe, bar, lounge, pool and more to create the ultimate getaway before (of after!) the wedding. 


Read on to hear from Director of Catering, Allison Shuldhiess, on why the Kimpton is going to be your wedding party spot! 


Please tell us a little more about your business.

"Our prime River North location and mature urban style speak for themselves. Think clean lines, modern elements and luxury lifestyle amenities that modestly confirm we’ve thought of it all. Yet, when you stay at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago, it’s truly the human connections that matter most. Heartfelt personalization marks every stay. A spirit of care permeates the premises from our glam-meets-cozy, ground-floor living room, all the way up to our heated pool with sky-high views of the neighborhood we’re proud to call our own."


What sets you apart from others? Why should a bride choose you? 

"With years of wedding event experience we are here to help create the perfect day for couple’s and all their guests! From the moment we connect, through the planning process, and into the day of your event we are here to help advise, plan, and communicate all your needs within the hotel. Couples can rest assured that we will handle the heavy lifting so they can relax and enjoy their day!"


Do you have anything else exciting that you would like to share? 

"Executive Chef Amber Lancaster is rolling out brand new wedding packages in May of 2018. We are so excited to provide innovative and delicious menus to our couples as well as trailblazing signature cocktails from Sable Kitchen & Bar to couples and their guests on their wedding day!"


What inspires you as a hotel? 

"We absolutely LOVE love. Working with couples and their families on this important day is such an honor. No detail is too small and no idea is too big! We are energized by and find the joy of each wedding incredibly motivating."


What do you love most about hosting weddings?

"Our favorite part of hosting our couples is that we are able to spend the whole weekend with them, their friends, and their family. As a one-stop-shop everyone checks into the hotel on Friday, we host the ceremony rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. On Saturday, they’ll use our incredible 17th floor Fresco Terrace to have a first look or family photos before moving to the ballroom for their wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/dance. On Sunday morning we host brunches for the family and then guest checkout with the BEST memories from a fabulous weekend in downtown Chicago."
