Step into the lobby of Palmer House® A Hilton Hotel and gaze at the famous frescoed ceiling of this landmark Chicago, Illinois hotel. This AAA four-diamond-rated hotel has been hosting visitors to the Chicago Loop for over 140 years. Today, Palmer House Hilton continues to thrive in the heart of the theatre and financial district, just steps from the Art Institute, Millennium Park and State Street shopping. A short walk away is Grant Park, where summer festivals take place. Family attractions such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and Navy Pier are just a quick cab ride away.
