History is Hott!!

Palmer House Hilton’s History is Hott!! Tour in its 10th record-breaking year!

The Chicago Tribune suggests The Palmer House as “A place that should be among your don’t-miss sights during any downtown excursion…”.

History is Hott!! won Illinois Meetings & Event’s Editor’s Pick for the Best City Tour and is led by Palmer House’s history extraordinaire Ken Price, named best historian of 2014 by Historic Hotels of America.

This interactive luncheon and tour series is presented by Director of Public Relations, Ken Price, a 32-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 starter and entrée 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 approximately 1 hour and 15 minute lecture in the historic hotel’s museum. Following the lecture Ken will navigate guests through the hotel 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 for this portion of the tour. 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 $70 per person* and need to be made 24-hours in advance. Tour is also available without lunch at $40 per person*. Tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday subject to availability. View calendar for available tour dates.

*Does not include tax and gratuity
