Palmer House Hilton Launches Exclusive Experience With Photobomb Concierge
CHICAGO - Known for setting the trends in Chicago for more than 100 years, Palmer House Hilton is launching its latest cutting-edge offering, providing guests with the ability to take their visit to the Windy City up an extra notch with an exclusive Photo Bomb Concierge offering. Available for half-day and full-day packages, this unique concierge service will enable guests to create an authentic and fun-filled keepsake from their stay.
The exclusive service can be added to a guest's overnight stay with either a half-day or full-day booking. The standard half-day service starts at $200.00 for four hours of exclusive use of Palmer House Hilton's Photo Bomb Concierge Ken Price. Price will provide personalized photo bomb planning including guidance and suggestions for typical photo bomb opportunities around the city as well as more over-the-top ideas to create the ultimate photo bomb photo. For an additional fee, costumes and props can be added to Price's photo bombs.
"I have been photo-bombing guests and friends alike for many years and am thrilled the Palmer House Hilton has made my position official," said Ken Price, photo bomb concierge, Palmer House Hilton. "Much like any artistic profession, photo bombing takes poise and talent to master skillfully. I practice different poses on a regular basis to keep my skills nimble and ever at the ready."
Named "Word of the Year" by Collins English Dictionary in 2014, photo bombing is the act of accidentally or purposely putting oneself into the view of a photograph, often in order to play a practical joke on the photographer or the subjects. In recent trends, photo bombing has become a true form of art, with #photobomb trending with millions of posts across social channels.
"We are so lucky to have talent such as Ken's at our finger tips here at Palmer House Hilton," said Dean Lane, general manager, Palmer House Hilton. "Engaging with our guests is part of our core values and built into the principles upon which our hotel was founded - whether it is sparking creativity, building synergies or making lasting impressions. We are thrilled to launch this new offering and trust Ken's creative intuition and expert photo-bombing skills will create a one-of-a-kind experience for guests and locals alike."
