The Palmer House Hilton

17 East Monroe Street, Box 75845, Chicago, IL 60603
4.5
29 reviews

Aside from housing the rich and famous during the 1893 World's Fair, the Palmer House also shares another piece of history with the exhibition. It was here that a pastry chef was charged with creating a new confection to wow fair-goers, resulting in the birth of the brownie. The hotel still serves their chocolate creation at their in-house Lockwood Restaurant.

    This is such a beautiful, historic building. Some of the original details have been preserved--the floors in the elevators were my favorite, I think. The lobby and rooms have been updated but are also lovely. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and on a cold day in January, I was thankful for the free coffee and cookies on my ...

    This place has such charm! From the sweet decor of the rooms to the actual key you use to open your door. Great location with just a few minute walk to millennium park and buckingham fountain. Found this gem on Hotwire hot deal. Valet parking was $54 overnight. Other parking garages are $40 nearby but don't offer valet with unlimited ...

    This hotel is charming. The building is a historic landmark (I believe it was built in 1897) that overlooks the elevated train on Jeweler's Row. I loved the lobby's decor, but one of the employees told me that they're likely going to be redesigning it soon. They're opening a restaurant on the first floor in the next month or so, ...

    Walking into HI is like walking into the common area of a college dorm. On one side is a small cafe, on the other is the reception area and a large common area with several different seating areas, some couches, some high top tables and stools. It's very welcoming, despite the somewhat impatient staff. This hostel has all the amenities ...

    This is a nice, low-key hotel. The staff touts its homey, comfortable feel, and I think they're right to do so. The suites aren't huge, but they're plenty big enough for relaxing between meetings or tourist excursions. One of the things I like best about this hotel is the grocery service (which makes the full kitchen an asset). The also ...

    The Essex Inn is a gem! I've seen their bright red sign from Grant Park hundreds of times, but never thought to look inside. I'm so glad I did. On Michigan Avenue, it's easy to overlook this smaller hotel for some more recognizable names. But it's a better value and the interior is nearly as nice as its neighbors. Like ...

    The suites here are very nice--by far my favorite decor of the suites I've seen. I love the teal sectional with chaise and pull-out couch, and the workspace/room divider is visually interesting, really unique. I can't figure out why two hotels share the same space (You get off the elevator and are facing two check-in desks that share one snack ...

    I don't know about you, but I can't afford to eat every meal in a restaurant when I'm traveling. I like the Residence Inn because every room has a cute, clean, and up-to-date kitchenette for those nights when you just want to throw together a quick dinner before heading out. I also like the decor: red furniture, stainless steel appliances, ...

    This hotel has warm, inviting common areas and a very friendly staff. The room was a good size for downtown Chicago, clean and brightly lit. The Pollock-esq prints were a nice change from the usual hotel room artwork and the clean, white bedding was almost serene. Unfortunately, the spa and pool were closed for renovations, so that was disappointing. It's ...

    There's nothing glamorous about Comfort Suites, which is somewhat surprising with its Michigan Ave address and its proximity to the river, but I'd definitely recommend it for someone who's planning to spend a few days doing the tourist thing downtown. The suites are spacious, though the layouts are somewhat odd (in one room, the view from the bed is of ...

    By simply looking at this hotel, it doesn't appear to have anything really special about it, but considering everything that's included, I'd definitely say it's one of the best offers in the city. First of all, you're right in the heart of River North, the city's foodie heaven and nightlife hot spot. It's not as posh as some of the ...

It's located right in the Loop and has easy access to public transportation and downtown theaters. The rooms are small, but they’re also charming, plush and good use is made of the space. The décor is a mix of the hotel’s Art ...

    The hotel is slightly older but well-maintained. The views are amazing and depending on the floor that you're on you can see an up close skyline of Chicago. I love that you walk out of the door and you're in the center of the city. And the junior size Olympic swimming pool is to die for!

The hotel is located blocks away from everything, the mag mile, hundreds of great restaurants, but it feels like its own private corner. They'll remind you that you're also in fast food ...

It’s located right off the Magnificent Mile, so there are tons and tons of shops nearby if you’d like to score some new threads. Same goes for ...

For smaller bites, head to the newly opened Burke's Bacon Bar, which serves up pork-centric sandwiches. For late night sips, ...

    The location is excellent. Water taxi nearby, magnificent mile just a few steps away. Keefer's restaurant just a few minutes away. Nothing to complain about the hotel - just a normal business hotel. Wifi availability was not good around the hotel conference areas. The conference areas were a maze with some places quite far apart.
