Hotel Expert's Tip. Two 24-carat gold angels greet guests as they walk into the grand lobby of The Palmer House Hilton. The ceilings of this lobby feature candelabras designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, 14-carat gold leaf paint guilds, and Greek mythology frescoes restored by Lido Lippi, who helped recondition the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
