The hotel is beautiful and the staff was very nice, however the entire 8th floor REEKED of pot. Seriously, we were gagging on the smell of skunk. If cigarette smoking isn’t allowed, not sure how this is. We had to open the windows multiple times to dissipate the stink, and in January, it got quite cold and inconvenient. The hallway was obviously neglected as dirty dishes and wine-soaked bath towels laid in piles outside the other guests’ doors for days. Dirty and just plain sad.

The bartenders are not very friendly at the lobby bar. However, the lobby is beautiful and once we got our drinks, we enjoyed ourselves.

Exceptional staff, service, cleanliness, and vintage charm. Love the executive suites with two bathrooms. Also had a crib up to the room in less than 20 minutes. Housekeeping stopped by to turn down the beds. Complimentary drinks on arrival. Always love to stay at the Palmer House. Many restaurants in walking distance. Our favorite is Berghoffs.
