Conrad Hilton Hotel, Chicago
My new friend and fellow bibliophile Linsey found this great vintage postcard of Chicago’s Conrad Hilton Hotel (now just the Hilton Chicago and still going strong). According to the card, “(t)he hotel located on Michigan Boulevard in the heart of Chicago’s world famous convention center is one of the largest hotels in the world.” Sorry, Chicago — with only 1,544 rooms, this hotel isn’t even in the top 20 anymore; most of those are in Las Vegas. But Hilton can still claim two out of the top 20: the Las Vegas Hilton, and the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu. Imagine that: a hotel big enough to be considered a village.
