Sweet deal, great place

Found this deal for $119 last minute for an event downtown. The hotel lobby and bar area is one of the most beautiful surroundings you can be a part of. The staff was too notch and eager to assist! I will stay there again!

Use the parking garage and self park. It's right across the street and will save you about $20-$40/night.

Historic Charm,Fantastic Staff,Needs small upgrades

I was here on business, amd thoroughly enjoyed the Palmer House. The staff was excellent. My room was a smaller room with a queen bed. As with most historic hotels, the Palmer House needs a little freshening up. Two of the light fixtures in my room didnt work at all,and the shower when turned to hot just trickled out water. These are small nuisances to me, and overall the hospitality of the staff made up for this.

thumbs up

I stayed for 2 nights with my girlfriend. Location is excellent. Clean/friendly/classy atmosphere. For the price we paid, not sure there is a better deal around. I will for sure come back and stay with them again.

st.Patrick's day stay

The Palmer Hotel was beautiful on the inside and out. Parking was easy and convenient. The check in and check out lines were quick and they had numerous people to help. We found the concierge who was on duty while we we there on Saturday morning (3/15/14) was very helpful in finding the beat St.Patrick's day celebrations. Our room was comfortable and suitable for the two of us.

Great Stay... Great Price!

You cannot beat the Palmer House. Always reasonably priced and the property is beautiful. Lobby and Bar area is like nothing you will find anywhere else in Chicago. Even if you are not a guest come in for drinks and people watching in a great open area. If you are staying here you are in for a treat. Great rooms, great prices, and wonderful, clean, and comfortable rooms. Book the Palmer House no matter if you are with a family, friends, or in business. The have a room and experience for all
