The Hilton Chicago, the site for all conference activities, may not be able to accommodate your travel plans due to high demand. So AMUG has negotiated the same attractive room rate of $149/night* for stays at the Palmer House Hilton.
Palmer House Hilton is a 15-minute walk (0.7 miles) from the Hilton Chicago or a 5-minute drive (traffic dependent). But you won’t need to worry about that because AMUG will provide shuttle services between the two hotels from 6:00 am to 11:00 am and from 4:30 pm to 12:30 am.
The Palmer House Hilton
Thirteen days after its grand opening, the Palmer House fell victim to the Great Chicago Fire. Determined to rebuild his hotel, Potter Palmer secured a $1.7 million loan–negotiated on his signature alone. On November 8, 1873, the new Palmer House welcomed its first guests, marking the opening of what would become the nation’s longest continually operating hotel.
In recent years, this historic Chicago hotel has undergone a $170 million renovation to ensure that it includes all of the conveniences and comforts 21st-century guests expect while also preserving the significant history. Clearly “the Chicago hotel the world knows best” has positioned itself for the next era in downtown Chicago accommodations–and the next generation of Palmer House Hilton with a hip and historic outlook.
