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 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, ...

    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 ...

    Now, this is a nice hotel. Perhaps even more importantly, this is one of the most historic hotels in town. That’s largely due to the fact that when it was renovated, it wasn’t gutted and rebuilt with modern furniture and all that. Much of this hotel remains charmingly vintage, including the exposed steel-beams you’ll find by the stairs, and the ...

    The Allerton may be a sleekly modern boutique hotel now, decorated in rich greys, navy and silver, but underneath the bold graphic prints and contemporary design is a ton of history. Built in 1924, this North Italian Renaissance-style hotel was once the home of the famous 1950s Don McNeill's Breakfast Club radio show, and also the location of the swanky ...

    The skyscraper that this hotel is located in is probably the most impressive architecture in downtown Chicago. The hotel is also located smack on the edge of Wacker Ave. Its close proximity to the Chicago river is a bonus cause you really get to experience unique views of Chicago's skyline. On our next visit- we will definitely be staying here!!!

    I haven't stayed at the Blackstone, but I had brunch downstairs in Mercat a la Planxa then took a social media tour with Gogobot Chicago. Not only didn't I know about this hotel on South Michigan, but I didn't know it's place in history. The old barber shop in the basement was one of Al Capone's favorite places since he ...

    My favorite part of Chicago is the riverfront, so this hotel on Wacker Drive earned major points before I even walked in. I've passed by in the summer, and they always have a lively crowd outside on their beautiful patio, but today it was freezing cold and there was definitely no one hanging around out front. Inside, though, it was ...

    This hotel is architecturally impressive, with a gorgeous, marble-everything lobby. It's formal and luxurious which, frankly, made me feel a little unwelcome. The staff--the huge staff--wears secret service-like earpieces and is strategically placed around the common areas. I'm sure they're very helpful, but I felt like I was being watched. Still, this hotel is in a great location. It seems ...

While the interior is extremely nice as well, my favorite part of the hotel is the ...

    my favourite hotel in Chicago. Fun boutique hotel on State and Lake. Roof is a cool roof top bar with views of the city. Cibbo Matto - the in house restaurant is top class Italian. Try to get a spa room - for deep bath with floor to ceiling view of the city beneath you.

The hotel is also home to David Burke's Primehouse, named the city's best steakhouse by Chicago Magazine. 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.

    When the hotel has a few unsold rooms, you can occasionally snag a deal through Priceline or Expedia. With Priceline you never know what hotel you'll get, just that it will be 4* quality or whatever star rating you seek. I thought I'd wind up at a Marriott or another chain, so I was thrilled to land a room at ...

    This is the cutest, modern, chic boutique hotel in Chicago. I stumbled upon this while browsing around State St and found their lobby to be significantly more happening on a random Tuesday night (abide this was during a holiday weekend) than any other place. I got curious and walked into this amazingly setup lobby with a wanna-be fire place! The ...
