Glitz, Glamour, and Grandeur at the Palmer House Hilton

What Do the Rooms Include?

All 1,641 rooms are classically decorated with beautiful drapes and cozy furnishings, and they feature breathtaking views of Lake Michigan or Chicago's glittering skyline. Modern conveniences like WiFi, HDTV, and climate control, ensure a comfortable stay.

What Amenities/Features Does the Palmer House Hilton Offer?

Palmer House Hilton is full of amenities including a 10,000-foot spa, heated indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, and fully stocked fitness room. The on-site Lockwood Restaurant and Bar is a famous downtown dining destination that offers American favorites made from fresh, locally sourced produce and honey harvested from the rooftop aviary. For a delicious handcrafted cocktail, guests can head to either the opulent Lobby Bar or the more informal Potter's Bar.

What Are the Room Rates at the Palmer House Hilton?

Room rates are reasonable compared to other similar Chicago hotels, with rates starting at $259 for a guest room with two double beds, or $309 for a more spacious room.

What's There to Do Nearby?

A stay here places you just across the street from the much-loved Oak Street Beach, which provides the perfect spot to relax, soak up the sun, or enjoy a stroll. Shopaholics can get their fix at the boutique-filled streets of the Magnificent Mile, while the nearby Art Institute of Chicago and the Field Museum of Natural History are excellent ways to learn more about the rich local history.

What's the Bottom Line?

The 70 meeting rooms and dedicated business center make this a hotspot for business travelers; however, couples looking for a romantic stay will adore the luxurious decor and incredible amenities found in this 1925 beaux-arts style hotel.

Expert Reviews
“The grande dame of Chicago hotels” is renowned for the “spectacular” decorated ceiling in its Gilded Age lobby (“worth seeing even if you’re not a guest”) but “not the rooms” so much.
Although standard rooms tend to run small, they were rejuvenated with the Palmer House's history in mind, so that each is individually decorated with turn-of-the-century details and art.
Michelin Guide
From spacious, attractive, and updated accommodations to fine dining at the lovely Lockwood restaurant, the Palmer House lives as comfortably within the 21st century as it did in the 19th.
