Your home away from home is Palmer House Hilton at 17 East Monroe Street, conveniently located downtown a block and a half from the Art Institute. The longest continuously operating hotel in North America, the Palmer House originally opened on September 26, 1871 as a wedding gift to Bertha Honore Palmer from her husband, Chicago merchant baron Potter Palmer. A formative early patron of the Art Institute of Chicago, Bertha Palmer personally collected and donated many of the Art Institute's masterpieces of French Impressionism, European, Asian, and American art. As the longest continuously operating hotel in North America, the Palmer House has been the destination of choice for every U.S. president since Ulysses S. Grant, world leaders and dignitaries, celebrities, and Chicago's movers-and-shakers. Catering to on-the-go visitors, who expect the finest in dining, entertainment, and services, the Palmer House is a luxury hotel in Chicago that transcends generations with a modern twist on its rich traditions. Defining the heart of Chicago's downtown Loop, the Palmer House forms an architectural nexus among the historic and modern skyscrapers of Burnham and Root, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mies van der Rohe.
