The Palmer House a Hilton hotel can accommodate the needs of the small corporate and industry meetings market and permit small meeting availability during major convention commitments. Offering a wide range of meeting accommodations, the 7th floor consists of 34 custom meeting rooms within six distinct areas or “wings.” Large general session conference rooms, deluxe board rooms, and smaller breakout rooms are equipped with the finest available furnishings and provide the ultimate in comfort, function, and convenience for meeting programs. The State Ballroom is majestically regal. Used in conjunction with the Grand Ballroom, it can provide an unparalleled space for a lavish dinner seating as many as 1,300 guests. The Red Lacquer Room rivals the great halls of a fine European palace. This richly decorated room has an adjoining foyer, as well as a comprehensive lighting and sound system. The Empire Room is the signature of The Palmer House a Hilton Hotel. Known virtually throughout the world as one of the purest expressions of the High French Empire architectural design, its gold motif is set ablaze in the beveled mirrors and crystal chandeliers. Any function will take on significance when it is held in this venue, which has been called “the most beautiful room in all of Chicago,” and continues to be one of the city’s most sought-after facilities for private parties. During the most recent restoration, the Honoré Ballroom was added. Exquisitely beautiful, it's a metaphor for the elegance, gracious ambiance and high standards. The stunning wedding day portrait of Bertha Honoré Palmer—a legendary, glamorous socialite, arts patron and philanthropist—is a stately reminder of the romantic history of this Grand Hotel.
