    Home Alone 2 Holiday Package | The Kevin

    In the 1992 classic, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, the memorable and heartwarming scene where Kevin and his family are reunited on Christmas morning was not shot in New York but in the Hilton Chicago’s Conrad Suite. In 2019, Hilton Chicago launched a limited time Home Alone 2 Package allowing guests to live the lavish Kevin McCallister life with exclusive themed experience in the original Conrad Suite featured in the movie. This year, the historic hotel is bringing that back with two new experiences – The Kevin and The ‘Silver Tuna’ of Holiday Offers. 

    The package includes a whole Cheese pizza from Herb ‘N kitchen, made especially by our Executive Chef who is Pizza-aioli certified. A pool reservation for Cannon Ball Practice, Suite accommodations, Paint Can for Sticky Bandit candy fill-ups at HNK and an ADA approved toothbrush.
