Experience the magic of Home Alone by reliving the movie yourself
Know anyone who would jump at the chance to tap into their inner Macaulay Culkin and relive some of the most iconic scenes from classic 90’s movie? Well, we’ve found an insane hotel experience offered by the Hilton Chicago that made all of their guests’ Home Alone dreams come true.
Given that Home Alone is one of the most beloved holiday movies, filled with fun, excitement, and adventure, Hilton Chicago made the most of being one of the main sets of the film by crafting the ultimate package for fans of the film.
For starters, the lucky guests stayed in the same suite that Kevin McAllister stayed in during the movie. That's right, they got to sleep in the same bed, use the same phone, and even slide down the same bannister as Kevin. That's not all! A personal butler was on hand to attend to their every need in the suite adorned with all the movie’s festive decorations, whether they desired a scoop of ice cream or a cup of hot chocolate with a touch of peppermint Schnapps. As if this wasn’t already enough, they could hop in their private limousine to explore the city with a bottle of champagne and their very own personal cheese pizza.
Guests were offered this once-in-a-lifetime experience at the steep price of $100,000. Think you can justify charging even more for an experience at your hotel? Let’s take a look at a property that took their offer a step further.

This package is not only for Formula 1 fans, but for anyone who loves luxury and wants to experience the thrills of the race in the most exclusive way possible. So, if you have an exciting event coming up near your property, this could be your chance to create an extraordinary package that would appeal to your guests with a million dollars to spare.
