The hotel was centrally located for everything you want to do in Chicago. While the room was on the smaller side it had everything we needed. The room was also very quiet and I could not hear any noise from the street below. Even though...More
We arrived finding the lobby on the second floor. The ceiling is several stories high and so decorated you starring at it for several minutes. The Front desk was as good as you will find. They have the electronic door system that makes access very...More

This is my second stay. If you enjoy a hotel with a grand entrance, small rooms, terrible HVAC, no refrigerator and no coffee maker in your room then this is for you. Otherwise, stay away. I stayed ten nights. After the hotel workers went on...More
My two boys (ages 4 & 8) joined my sister at Palmer House while she was in town for a conference. We were initially greeted by the hotel workers striking out front. I am all for them fighting for what’s fair, but the snare drums...More
Some might say that this hotel looks like the one in American Horror Story but I say that it is just magical. The building is located in the perfect area of downtown, many things are walking distance and staff is extremely helpful and hospitable. Is...More

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

I've probably stayed at the Palmer House two dozen times over the years and I can't ever remember finding myself in a room with a great view. The hotel is surrounded by other high-rise buildings, so my guess is there really isn't a "great view" in the classic sense. That said, when booking, I would speak directly with one of the reservations staff right there at the hotel, tell him or her you want a room with the best view the Palmer House has to offer, and see where they put you.

There are different options available. You can pre-purchase and park below the hotel (keep in mind the spaces available in this option are rumored to be "tight" and it is sometimes difficult to park). Our recommended garage across the street from the hotel at 55 E. Monroe is $46/night once you validate your ticket at the hotel. our valet parking is $82/night. Both options include in and out privileges.
