Chicago Classy–The Palmer House Hotel

I have traveled a lot to Chicago over the years and stayed in most of the really good hotels. I never stayed at The Drake but had cocktails there. I have stayed at all the Westin hotels, The Sheraton, The Chicago Hilton,The Hyatt, The Intercontinental, the Ritz and many others. Last week we stayed in a suite at the Palmer House as part of my daughter’s wedding. Is it the most beautiful in Chicago? Who knows. It is certainly in the same class as the Intercontinental and the Ritz and one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Not only is it beautiful but the service and attention by the entire staff was perfect.

Palmer House Wave

Last week we had a suite at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago as part of our only daughter’s wedding. I was fascinated by the strange full length mirrors on our floor. I spent some time trying to get only my head in the mirror and take the shot. Couldn’t do it handheld without falling down so settled for a wave instead.
