Perfect!

The Palmer house couldn't have done anything to make our stay better. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The lobby was filled with holiday cheer! This hotel was in walking distance to great shopping, restaurants, museums and the theaters. I will be staying at the Palmer house many more times!

Beautiful Lobby!

Room was a little small, but very well kept up...same with the bathroom. The beauty of the lobby, the historic ambiance and the location to the theatre district is hard to beat....we'll definitely return to the Palmer House.

We had asked for another room

We had asked for another room because the size of the bathroom and my husband being 6'5 and being 360lbs. and were told they would call us and let us know of our new room number. Since we never received a call, we called several days down to the lobby, and we were never moved to another room!!

The staff at the Palmer House

The staff at the Palmer House is awesome! Everyone from the desk to the housekeeping staff is pleasant and helpful, no matter what time of the day or night it is. Rooms are clean and well-maintained. We have always had top-notch stays at the Palmer House.
