Used to overrated, overpriced hotel restaurants this one is an exception. The prices are decent for a steakhouse, with steaks in the $40-50 range and you can get a drinkable wine for $40-50. We had octopus as an appetizer, and it was good enough although the portion was way too small (even for 2 people to share). My ribeye was... More

I had lunch at the Lockwood Restaurant and the food was very good and the staff was very attentive to the table. They gave a good amount of food for the value. The restaurant is off of the main lobby area and they have a social area where you can get drinks right outside of the restaurant. I did see... More

Nice bar and nice selection of food. The drawback is that is very crowded on Friday and Saturday night. They do not have a very good selection of nonalcoholic drinks. Sometimes they bring chips, but that seems to be an irregular occurrence

Came to the palmer house for the magic parlour, short of time and it was 5° so we decided to eat at the hotel resteraunt, it is pricey but in comparison to what u will find in the area, it is fair. Good service, small menu, but the steak was very good for a hotel resteraunt, salmon was very good... More

This is a special occasion restaurant for sure - almost a $300 bill for 4 people. The menu is entirely ala carte so everything costs extra. However, our food was delicious and the service was perfect. We would definitely go again, and would love to try the breakfast. The day we left, their breakfast line was out to the hotel... More

The restaurant serves large portions of deliciously prepared food in a very tastefully decorated setting. My favorite meal here is the Lox and Shmear on the breakfast menu. There is enough food on the plate for dinner. Rather than go through it all, I would just say if you are a bagel and lox person, you owe it to yourself... More

Breakfast was a unfortunate experience not only for the service, but also for what they recommended as their most requested breakfast item, Eggs Benedict. Our water glasses were not filled and we had to request this. Eggs Benedict arrived with cooked poached eggs, and a bed of lettuce on top of the egg. The egg should be runny, and spinach... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
