Chicago Dibs, it’s a long revered Chicago tradition.”Dibs” refers to the practice of holding a shoveled-out parking space after a snowfall by placing chairs, laundry baskets, or other items in the street to mark the claimed space. The unwritten rule of Dibs, is that it expires after 48 hours.
In 2002, Mayor Richard M. Daley declared his support. “He believes that if you shovel out a parking place in a snowstorm, it’s only responsible of other neighbors to be considerate,” City Hall said. In his 2015 race, Mayor Rahm Emanuel followed Daley’s line, asserting that he believes in “sweat equity.”

Hilton Chicago is putting its spin on the 48 hour unwritten Chicago Dibs rule, that puts cash savings back into your pocket with a tremendous perk packed package and over-the-top redemptions to compliment the package throughout the winter season. Be on the lookout for 48 hour exclusive offers like complimentary return stays, free parking, room upgrades, dining credits and more when you book the Chicago Dibs package. The only catch to unlocking these additional inclusions, you must book within 48 hours.
