A large majority of hotel renovations are focused on giving guests the latest and greatest aesthetics and adding new technology to their offerings, such as touchscreen devices to walls throughout rooms and passageways. However, Chicago's Palmer House Hilton's $215 million restoration went the opposite direction and returned their centenarian structure to its original splendor and updated its former spaces back to their previous magnificence.
Celebrating 143 years of service, changes were made to suites, meeting spaces, the fitness area, business center and restaurants. Along with restoring the overall look of the Chicago luxury hotel, keen attention was paid to ensure contemporary comforts weren’t overlooked. One of the most notable renovations is the hotel’s lobby and restaurants, where opulent American classic design has been infused with modern elements to create some of the most visually striking spaces in the city.
In its 50 suites, plush-top Serenity Dreams mattresses have been installed in each room, and Peter Roth Artisan bath products, exclusive VIP offerings such as private check-in, as well as access to a dedicated concierge are all a part of the guest experience.
“We are delighted to share the recent renovations of Palmer House Hilton with our guests,” said Dean Lane, General Manager. “Our goal has always been to preserve this iconic property while ensuring our guests are met with the comforts and conveniences of the 21st century. Continuing its legacy and maintaining unmatched hospitality for our guests, we will move forward in celebrating 143 years in the making.”
