Peacock doorway

r

This opulent doorway is not used anymore, but if you go to either side of it, you'll find yourself in the main lobby of the historic Palmer House Hotel in downtown Chicago. The hotel is now part of the Hilton chain, but that's okay with me since they have kept this gem in perfect condition. It's a treat even just to sit in the lobby and soak up all the atmosphere!

  2. Quite incredible. I'm glad they didn't tear it down. Hopefully, it will be around for many more years. Such plush elegance needs to be seen!
