The historic Palmer House is celebrating its 150th year anniversary, pampering its guests with the same charm, care and extravagance as it did on day one.
An elegant lobby welcomes guests to the boutique hotel.
Welcome to the Palmer House, now celebrating its 150th year as a Chicago historical gem. This ever-charming hotel was first opened in 1871 as a lavish wedding gift and later rebuilt in 1873 following the Great Chicago Fire. Over a century later, the Palmer House still carries those luxurious roots, serving its guests the perfect blend of vintage and contemporary that never fails to inspire. “As a hotel built on love, Palmer House remains ingrained into the city of Chicago, serving as a beacon of light following a challenging year,” says Hilton Area General Manager, Dean Lane, adding, “Alongside my phenomenal Palmer House team, we are honored to share our story during the hotel’s 150th year anniversary.” Check-in to this sesquicentennial celebration of a beloved landmark recognized around the world, from opulent ballrooms to historic venues to award-winning cuisine. Immerse yourself in the romance of French impressionist aesthetics; interact with a celebratory archival animated art-installation; unwind with specially curated spa specials, including a Red Lacquer manicure and Honoré hydro-tub therapy; or toast to 150 years with an expertly made cocktail at Lockwood Lobby Bar before attending an intimate in-house magic show. We recommend sampling a delectable Palmer House brownie, made with the same all-original recipe that first brought them to fame in the 19th century. No matter what brings you to the Palmer House, you’ll be astounded by its timeless beauty and intricacy. Cheers to 150 years and many more. 17 E. Monroe St., palmerhousehiltonhotel.com
