History is Hott!!
Palmer House Hilton'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.
Our historic luncheon and tour begins at 12:00 p.m. with lunch inside Lockwood, the property's modern American fare restaurant. A prix-fixe menu will be prepared featuring a salad and entre along with the hotel'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 1:30pm 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 for highlighting the art-deco lobby, grand ballrooms, and vintage artifacts showcased throughout the famed property. These sites aren't typically open to the public, so guests on the tour will have an exclusive insider view. Please allow yourself 60 minutes. At the conclusion of the tour participants will each receive a treat that embodies the true spirit of the hotel.
Lunch and tour reservations are $65 per person* and need to be made 24-hours in advance. Tours will be offered Tuesday through Saturday and are subject to availability.
