Palmer House

The Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel is America's longest operating hotel celebrating 145 years of service and $215 million renovation and restoration. It was the first to incorporate the light bulb, vertical steam powered railroad (elevator), telephone, and creator of the brownie. Guests are treated to the ultimate experience in luxury from the moment they arrive, with a two-story, gilded lobby with a formal staircase, marble-topped tables, velvet seating, and a ceiling mural depicting Greek mythology. Situated within walking distance of the theater district, Art Institute, State Street shopping, and within one mile of Lake Michigan, the Palmer House is the ideal destination for a Chicago vacation, wedding, or meeting, offering the best of elegant accommodations, unrivaled hospitality, and a celebrated history
