History is Hott

Palmer House®, A Hilton Hotel's History is Hott Tour is the winner of the 2013 Illinois Meetings & Event’s Editor’s Pick for the Best City Tour.

This interactive luncheon and tour series is presented by Director of Public Relations, Ken Price, a 29-year resident historian of the property. The historic luncheon and tour begins at 12:00 p.m. with a prix fixe lunch at the hotel's Lockwood Restaurant. The menu will feature a salad and entree, along with the Palmer House's world-famous brownie and a glass of wine "to go" serving as the ideal accompaniment for the tour afterwards. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with each other prior to the tour.

After lunch, guests will meet Ken at 1:30 p.m. for about a 1 hour and 15 minute lecture in the historic hotel’s museum. Following the lecture, Ken will navigate guests through the hotel to highlight the Art Deco lobby, grand ballrooms, and vintage artifacts showcased throughout the famed property. The tour will uncover corners of the hotel not typically open to the public, so guests on the tour will have an exclusive insider view.

At the conclusion of the tour participants will each receive a treat that embodies the true spirit of the hotel.
