A magnificent location, overlooking Grant Park, Lake Michigan and Museum Campus, is just the beginning at Hilton Chicago. The Hilton Chicago, designed in Beaux-Arts architecture, opened its doors in 1927 as the Stevens Hotel and continues to fulfill the vision of its original founder and first namesake – to create an entirely self-sufficient city within a city, a place capable of offering the most extensive convention and conference facilities in a primary destination. Today, Hilton Chicago keeps the dream alive by maintaining the hotel’s classic integrity with all the luxury conveniences the modern traveler has come to expect.
Hotel Fun Facts:
·Every U.S. President has attended an event in the Grand Ballroom.
·Room rates in 1927 ranged from $3.50 to $10 for a single bedroom.
·Bell Desk – Hilton Chicago holds the Guinness World Record for the longest working bellman: 65 years! Sam Cascio. He once said “If I retire, I’m afraid I’ll get old.”
·Elevator – Hotel has six sub basements where the giant boilers and chillers are that heat and cool the building. In the early days of the Stevens Hotel, underground railroad cars ran through 6B delivering coal and removing ash.
·Elevator Landing – In the 1920’s, registered guests encountered nine employees from the time of check-in to arriving at their guestroom. Each floor had its own check-in station and staff.
