The story of the hotel is one of undeniable charm...an introduction by Potter Palmer's former business partner, Marshall Field, sparked the engagement of Potter & Bertha that led to perhaps one of the most extravagant wedding gifts of all time - The Palmer House Hilton.
Celebrating over 140 years and 9,000 weddings, we invite you to share the Palmer House Hilton as your "Something Borrowed."

Palmer House Catering Office 17 East Monroe Street | Chicago, IL 60603 direct: 312.422.1325 | fax: 312.332.7670 palmerhousecatering@hilton.com More Information
Venues: Five Ballrooms and unique one of a kind ceremony, reception, rehearsal and morning brunch venues including the Grand Ballroom, the famed Empire Room, the Honore Ballroom, the Red Lacquer Room as well as Potter's, Lockwood Restaurant Bar and Hospitality Suites.

Culinary Philosophy: Use fresh, local, seasonal product, and use plenty of it. In our rooftop garden, we grow fresh herbs, vegetables, and lettuces that we harvest and then prepare in our kitchens. Combining this approach with our signature restaurants’ farm-to-table cuisine, we have created banquet menus for all seasons. Our culinary team works to create great-tasting, customized menus while setting new culinary trends for every occasion. Culinary fun fact - the brownie was invented at the Palmer House.

Icing on the Cake: Set the stage for your wedding guests with an unforgettable arrival experience to our crown gem and heart of the house, the Grand Lobby, featuring a ceiling of 21 Greek mythological panels rivaling those of the Sistine Chapel. As America's longest operating hotel, we've recently completed a $215M restoration of the entire hotel offering you a historic yet hip venue.

Extra Indulgences: Balance Spa for treatments and hair prior to and following the celebration, Complimentary Balance Fitness center with in-door pool, Complimentary Connectivity Station, Concierge, Shoe Shine Service, as well as an on site Starbucks, Freshii, and Merz Apothecary.

Wedding Coordination: Our catering team is committed to helping you host an extraordinary wedding - one that's not only remembered, but talked about. As experts in all facets of wedding planning, our Wedding Coordinators are devoted to ensure your wedding surpasses your greatest expectations. And, as one would expect from a hotel renowned for its stunning decor, the Palmer House wedding decorators are also exceptionally skilled in creating elegant, opulent wedding settings. Not to mention that our catering team is one of the finest in Chicago, having catered countless events for the heads of state and foreign dignitaries. We can provide you with recommendations for wedding coordinators for day of or full service.

The Palmer House was a dream place to have a wedding! Everything from the venue, to the food, to the service was outstanding. And we have Jane Himmel, the senior catering manager, to thank for everything. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, and the personal attention she provides makes not only the day incredibly special and perfect, but she made the whole year so much fun to plan.

The Palmer House is a gem. We were so lucky to have our wedding ceremony and reception in the most beautiful hotel in the country. Our guests are still talking about the venue. The food was magnificent, the room didn't need any decor because of the ornate nature of the room. The staff is the most professional banquet staff I have ever experienced. The Catering Manager's knowledge led the way for a perfect event.

We had our wedding in the Honoré Room -- and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. Sara and Josah were great to work with -- and they even dealt graciously with my bridezilla, micro-managing moments (although I hope they were few and far between). Many of our guests were from out of state, and everyone thought it was the most gorgeous and ideal location. We especially loved the history behind the hotel. Throughout the whole weekend, the Palmer House staff made an effort to make us feel special (including notes, champagne, fruit, etc. in the rooms). We had a phenomenal experience from beginning to end! It was truly a fairytale wedding.

The Palmer House Empire Room was one of the most beautiful rooms we looked at while searching for our reception location. It stood out and wasn't any ordinary banquet hall. We knew immediately that that was the room we wanted to host our celebration. And it was well worth it - the food was amazing, the staff were amazing and the room looked amazing! We are still getting compliments!!
