Great price for central location and old world charm

May 18th, 2020

The old world charm of Palmer drive, its central location and Hiltons tested customer service made this stay a perfect win! The building is showing some age in the rooms side, but the lively lobby and the great restaurant and breakfast (free for diamond members) is an amazing deal in Chicago city. Absolute value for money! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great location, beautiful hotel. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean. Check in and out was a breeze. The location of the hotel is excellent, close to shops, restaurants, park. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Beautiful historic hotel.

Apr 12th, 2020

We stayed at Palmer House close to Christmas . It was a wonderful experience. The very magnificent lobby was further enhanced by a huge, beautifully decorated Christmas tree. The atmosphere in the lobby was celebratory with families and couples enjoying drinks and refreshments. They accept dogs, so our little schnauzer was welcome as part of the family. We had dinner in their restaurant, Lockwoods, which was not cheap, but convenient. The room was not spectacular, but comfortable and the halls had portraits of all the entertainers who had preformed there over the years. The hotel is within walking distance of many sights and the park. While the stay was not cheap, it was a lovely experience and very memorable TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

As usual, unique space and terrific staff

Mar 23rd, 2020

We stayed for two nights over St. Patrick's Day weekend. The city was very quiet, and the hotel was also. The staffer at registration booked us into a perfectly fine but pretty ordinary room. The chance came up to ask about a transfer to one of the more unique rooms -- there are many in this hotel -- and like that, it was done. Lobby bar was peaceful for a really pleasant winding down after long walks around the city and at the lake. I did not get the names of the people on staff who so professionally helped us switch rooms -- but if management happens to read this, they were working late morning on Saturday, March 16 -- and they made the difference between a four-star and a five-star review.

Average except the lobby

Mar 20th, 2020

So don’t get me wrong the lobby and the interior of the ground floor is beautiful and definitely has the wow factor. But you don’t have to stay there to see or experience it! We stayed here as part of my husbands 50th birthday and it was a big disappointment. Check in was a drag and a bit of a mess. When we eventually got up to our room, which was a trek to walk around and find on the floor, it was huge. Bed was huge, seating area, tv, walk in closet - but the bathroom was rather small compared. The shower was quiet pathetic and there was no side space to put anything in the bathroom. There was no coffee or tea making kits in the room either - which was shocking. I had very uncomfortable nights sleeps too, although bed was huge very lumpy. Also got woken up at 7.30am one morning as there was builders doing up another room. No notice given to us or ‘excuse our dust’. No warning. Just a very rude awakening by drills and other noice. When we ventured out of our room, there were never any staff around to help us. For example, we waiting around and tried to find someone on or near the concierge desk for a map for 15mins. I ended up leaning over and trying to find one myself! Although location was perfect for the main attractions of Chicago, all walking distance, I would not stay here again. For the price we paid and the experience we got. Very disappointed!
