"The Brownie was invented here"
Fun fact: the brownie was invented at the Palmer house for the world fair. You can get the brownie at the Lockwood restaurant (and possibly other places in the hotel). rooms are nice and the lobby/ bar area is beautiful
"Beautiful hotel, great locatoion with all the amenities"
I was in Chicago non business and stayed for the first time and this lovely hotel. The lobby and bar area are magnificent. I stayed on the executive floor and that offered an executive lounge with a complimentary breakfast, and snacks and drinks through the day and evening. Very well stocked, with pleasant service. The rooms were large enough and well furnished. All i all, a very pleasant stay and a good place to do business.
"The Palmer House at Thanksgiving"
Beautiful historic hotel. Very comfortable and clean room. Even with the Thanksgiving crowds and the Parade the staff was very helpful. Rooms were made up in a timely manner even on Thanksgiving day. Would highly recommend for Thanksgiving.
"Beautiful common areas, beautiful suite!"
The common areas remind me of some of the museums we have seen in various parts of Europe. Gorgeous. Our suite was roomy and pretty. The breakfast in the Executive Lounge was good. I just wish that they had more tables. It was quite crowded, and hard to find a place to eat. Also, THERE WASN'T A COFFEE MAKER IN THE ROOM. We travel extensively, and have never stayed in a room without a coffee maker. We kept looking for one, but there definitely wasn't one. We arrived right when the rioters were marching past the front of the hotel. They were loud and menacing. The clerk was very accommodating: she gave us a room on the top floor in the back so we wouldn't hear negative, ugly chanting. THANK YOU, kind lady!!!! All of the employees were wonderful except the Concierge named something like Shawn (didn't see a name tag, but he said his name and it sounded like Shawn). He had a line of people waiting, but he schmoozed with two elderly ladies, touching their arms, flirting like crazy, I assume hoping for a big tip. We waited and waited with an important, time-sensitive question. He even disappeared to get them 2 free brownies that they like. While we waited and waited and waited. But like I said, the hotel was wonderful.
"Awesome city "
It's about a 45 min ride from the airport but a nice ride you get to see a lot but this hotel is downtown and is walking distance to everything and they have everything you would need in the hotel or in walking distance I had time to walk around on my first day there and I always ask at the front door is it safe to walk around and they said yes stay on the main roads So I started walking and man what a great clean city the parks the people all were nice I went to the firehouse to grab some TShirts from the fire man you know (Chicago fire) TShirts for the family and they were so nice you hear so much bad stuff about Chicago I guess it's where you travel to but downtown is great and the hotel Palmer house is a awesome place to stay with a lot of history
