Chicago Hotel Provides Elevated Level of Guest Comfort, Achieves Energy Efficiency Goals with Water-Source Heat Pump Systems from ClimateMaster

One of Hotel Palomar’s Genesis Standard (GS) Series units


With an aim toward infusing sustainability across all aspects of the guest experience, Kimpton® Hotels and Restaurants has incorporated environmental practices in its day-to-day business model since the company was established in 1981. This includes the Kimpton EarthCare program, which denotes more than 100 environmentally minded procedures and products implemented at all Kimpton hotels and restaurants in the U.S.

Among a myriad of practices to reduce waste, minimize toxins and conserve resources across all business functions, Kimpton maintains its own set of EarthCare green building guidelines, including employing energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems. These were of primary focus when the hotelier pursued construction of its 36-story, 353,000-square foot Hotel Palomar Chicago in the desirable River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago, which opened in the spring of 2010.

The building, which was designed by GREC Architects, features exterior construction that allows for maximized daylighting while imparting a sleek, minimalist and modern feel. In addition to the lower 14 floors occupied by the Hotel Palomar – Chicago and neighboring Sable Kitchen & Bar, the building’s top 18 levels are dedicated to luxury private residences, all of which feature glass balconies that offer exceptional views of River North. It also includes three levels of covered parking and a floor dedicated to mechanical operations.
