Chi-town destination ”

Palmer House Hilton Hotel was a centrally located place to stay as we experienced Chi-town. While you do have some walking to do it is close to the Art Institute of Chicago, The Bean, Lake Michigan, Shedd’s Aquarium and much more. The beauty of a historic hotel, the friendly staff and the accommodations makes it part of a great experience.

Wonderful hotel”

good condition, clean, great location, good service

Stay there for 3 nights, had a wonderful time,Close to a number of famous points of view, easy to find food to eat, convenient traffic (only 1 hour from airport to the hotel), clean, close to shopping malls The only thing unsatisfying is the lack of free internet, however, a starbuck nearby, that helps a lot. Overall feel really good about Palmer House Hotel RECOMMAND

Always nice intake”

I stay here always when I'm in Chicago. I used to stay at the Drake but changed locations when State Street became a nice area to shop and go to the theatre.

i have stayed at the palmer house for several years. i used to stay at the drake; however, i started staying at the palmer house when the theatre district opened up a few years ago when i could go to the cadillac palace, the bank of america (old shubert)and the other theatre that has opened up in the district. i also like the restaurants nearby.

I travelled with my roomate. It's our first time in Chicago and staying in a hotel with good location like this really makes our trip more convenient. The room is big, the service is nice, and It takes us like 5 seconds to check out the room which is brilliant!~ I think I would definetely think about staying there if I go to Chicago again.

Well located comfortable hotel”

1) Location 2)Comfortable rooms 3) REASONABLE PRICE

We like shopping, and the hotel is located near the best stores in downtown Chicago. The hotel is also close to the Art Museum which is a wonderful atraction oif the city. You also have very good restaurants in the area or if they are far away the subway and bus are good options. Also, coming back and forth to the airport in the blue subwayne to Monroe station is a fast and cheap way to movHighly recommended.

Art Deco style”

Palmer House is a beautiful Art Deco building with the most amazing ceiling in the main lobby. Great location and walking distance to the lake and other CBD areas. The room could have used some updating and there were a couple of ants in the bathroom, but was all ok. Biggest issue was the lines at checkin. I would go back though, the style was lovely

So unexpected!”

I was wary of this hotel before arrival because of the age and some bad reviews but wow, was i blown away! The hotel bar/check-in area is incredibly beautiful and the staff was amazing. we were able to check-in early and upgrade for a small fee. We upgraded from the full, single bed room to a king and we recommend it to anyone who can do it. The elevators were fast, pool was under construction, gym was great and staff were so accommodating.

great location, new rooms, beautiful lobby

great location in the middle of the city, walking distance to the Millenium Park and most major attractions. Rooms are newly renovated, very good taste, comfortable and modern. The hotel is very large and can be very busy during weekends and holidays, but we experienced good service and fast check-in. In summary a very good pick for the price compared to what you get, especially comparing with other hotels in the area.
