I have been to Chicago several times, and for different reasons. I’ve visited for conferences, spent time with friends, and also visited a college friend, Caroline, who lives just outside of the city. It’s a great city, with so much to see, and so much to do. In this post, I want to talk a bit about my favorite place in Chicago to stay. In my next post in this short series on Chicago, I’ll outline what I most enjoyed doing in Chicago.
On one trip to Chicago, I stayed at the Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago. It is gorgeous and has spacious rooms with great city views. The conference facilities are top-notch. And the location is convenient for touring the city. And how gorgeous is that lobby?
Each floor of the hotel is also decorated slightly differently in the elevator lobby area. This particular floor was my favorite, with the grand piano. Beautiful.
The Palmer House Hilton also has a great little bar called Potter’s. My friend Caroline and I tried fun drinks and snacks there. The bartenders were really helpful in letting us sample drinks and find flavors that we really liked.
And we couldn’t get over the decor. It had a fun 60s vibe, that also felt fresh and cool. But above the bar, the decor also looked a little bit Roswell, if you get my drift. 😉 Anyway, it was a great place to have a few drinks with friends.
