About The Palmer House Hilton

Garnet-draped chandeliers, Tiffany glass, and a ceiling fresco by French painter Louis Pierre Rigal usher you into the Old-World luxury of the Palmer House Hilton. The 4-star hotel has been a leading light in Chicago leisure for more than a century, hosting everyone from Charles Dickens to Judy Garland—and undergoing numerous overhauls through the years. The location is prime, too: both the Art Institute and Millennium Park are just a short walk away.

  • Modern rooms feature free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, and pillowtop beds.
  • Onsite dining: Lockwood Restaurant serves American cuisine made with seasonal and local ingredients, as well as produce grown in the hotel’s rooftop garden. Potter’s Lounge offers upscale sandwiches and pizzas complemented by craft cocktails.
  • Get pampered with a massage or facial at Balance Spa, or join a yoga class in the fitness center.
  • What other guests love: Attentive service, a great location, and a grand lobby

Chicago's Loop: Historic Commercial Center with World-Class Museums and Parks

Named after the shape formed by the elevated train tracks that form its perimeter, The Loop is Chicago's downtown and the country’s second-largest business district. Skyscrapers such as the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and the art-deco Chicago Board of Trade Building loom large here. They overlook waterfront parks, a glitzy theater district, and some of the world’s finest art collections.

About two blocks from the hotel is the Art Institute of Chicago, whose gargantuan collection covers everything from marble busts and sarcophagi to modern masterpieces such as Edward Hopper's Nighthawks and Grant Wood's American Gothic. You don’t even have to go to the museum to see outstanding art—walk around The Loop, and you’ll see outdoor sculptures from Picasso and Joan Miró. Just north of the Art Institute, Millennium Park is known for both the Frank Gehry-designed Pritzker Pavilion (which hosts free public concerts during the summer), and for the sculpture Cloud Gate, known to Chicagoans as “The Bean” for its legume-like shape.

Grant Park, known affectionately as "Chicago's front yard," occupies more than 300 acres along the lake just east of the Loop. Modeled after the gardens atVersailles, the park is dotted with several impressive attractions, including Buckingham Fountain, the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and Adler Planetarium.Its sheer size have made Grant Park the site of many notable events, including Barack Obama’s 2008 victory speech and the Lollapalooza music festival,which takes place here every summer.
