DescriptionThe Palmer House Hilton’s “History is Hott” lunch and tour series continues to be one of the most in demand tours in Chicago. This interactive luncheon and tour series hosted by Director of Public Relations Ken Price, a 32-year resident historian of the property and Historic Hotels of America’s 2014 “Historian of the Year” is open to the public and includes a two-hour lunch at the Palmer House’s Lockwood Restaurant & Bar and tour combination. “History is Hott” is offered Tuesday through Saturday to individuals and groups seeking to mix history and art with modern dining. Reservations are $65 per person for lunch and tour or $40 per person for tour only and need to be made 24-hours in advance by calling Lockwood Restaurant at 312.917.3404 or online at www.LockwoodRestaurant.com. Children under the age of 12 years are $15, children aged 13 – 18 years are $25 and have the option of choosing from a children’s menu. All tour dates and locations within the famed hotel are subject to availability.

Since its inception in 2011, “History is Hott” and, its guide, Price have received much attention and numerous awards and accolades including features on WGN-TV, WLS-TV’s “Windy City Live,” a five out of five star rating from TripAdvisor.com, “Chicago’s Best Tour” by Illinois Meetings and Events, and most recently, “Historian of the Year” for Price from the Historic Hotels of America. The historic tour begins at 1:30 p.m., following a 45-minute lunch inside Lockwood Restaurant & Bar, the Palmer House’s modern American fare restaurant. Executive Chef Matt Wiltzius prepares a prix-fixe menu featuring a salad and entrée along with the hotel’s world-famous brownie and a glass of wine “to go,” serving as the ideal accompaniment for the tour afterwards. Guests have the opportunity to meet and mingle with each other prior to the tour over lunch.

After lunch, guests meet “Historian Extraordinaire” Price for an interactive presentation in the hotel’s Museum, which is followed by a waling tour of the historic hotel’s art-deco lobby, grand ballrooms, guestrooms and vintage artifacts showcased throughout the famed property. Guests receive exclusive access to many sites within the hotel, as many of these areas are not typically open to the public. Upon conclusion of the tour, participants receive a commemorative gift that embodies the true spirit of the hotel.
