"Chicago Palmer House Hilton - June 2008 - The grand old lady of Chicago Hotels. Stories of its building are part of the really good book, Devil In The White City.
The public areas of the hotel are undergoing a very nice refurbishing. The rooms remain generally small, but nicely appointed. It will take an more major remodel to address the room size issues. Front desk service could use some better customer service training.
Location-wise, this hotel is great. In the heart of the theater district, near good restaurants (Italian Village, for a real 1950's atmosphere), and one block from Marshall Fields (no one should ever call it Macy's)."
