Initially built for Queen Elizabeth II, the North and South Imperial Suites were heralded into fruition as her royal highness’ changing rooms for her arrival in July 1959 following her journey on the Royal Yacht. Countless prominent guests have occupied the suites, including four U.S. Presidents. Elizabeth Taylor lived in Chicago during her marriage to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton Jr. for two months.
