And Call Dibs on 2 Complimentary Art Institute of Chicago Passes

Across Chicago city neighborhoods, the winter snow brings a Chicago tradition: dibs. That is the long revered practice of Chicagoans digging out a street parking space and then calling “dib” with anything handy —kitchen chairs, card tables, ironing board…you name it, and we’ve seen it— all to warn off potential spot snaggers. One unwritten rule, known by all Chicagoans – Dibs expires after 48 hours.
In 2002, Mayor Richard M. Daley declared his support. “He believes that if you shovel out a parking place in a snowstorm, it’s only responsible of other neighbors to be considerate,” City Hall said. In his 2015 race, Mayor Rahm Emanuel followed Daley’s line, asserting that he believes in “sweat equity.”
Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel is putting its very own spin on that 48 hour unwritten Chicago Dibs rule, that puts cash savings back into your pocket with a tremendous perk packed package and over-the-top redemptions to compliment the package throughout the winter season. Be on the lookout for 48 hour exclusive offers like complimentary return stays, free parking, room upgrades, dining credits and more when you book the Chicago Dibs package. The only catch to unlocking these additional inclusions, you must book within 48 hours.
In the meantime, we’ve sweetened up your spot in Chicago, giving you free reign to claim over $200 in savings with a dib-worthy package offering.
