Take a lively armchair visit to some of the exceptional resort hotels throughout the United States. Along the way, host Samantha Brown experiences first-hand what makes these hotel destinations popular, appealing, unique, and memorable. Each episode presents an entertaining "story" of up to two different hotel destinations, complete with encounters and eccentricities that creatively show and tell what makes each hotel a great experience. Episode 12: The Palmer House Hilton is one of only 26 grand palace hotels remaining in America. It was Chicago's first grand hotel, and today it continues to hold the distinction of being the longest continually operated hotel in North America. Samantha Brown checks in to see what this grand old lady is all about. The Palmer House holds a very special place in Chicago history. Built in the opulent style of Europe's grand hotels, it was the first Chicago hotel to have elevators, the first to have telephones in every room, and the first hotel to radiate with electric lights. A signature of the hotel is the two-story lobby with its detailed and elaborately painted ceiling - it's the size of a basketball court! During Samantha's stay at the Palmer House, she practices her swing on their indoor golf driving and putting range - it's located on the 8th floor! Samantha signs up for a high-energy workout at the fitness center...and takes a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago to see its collection of French Impressionism.
