diversity of the city’s neighborhoods, where you can explore everything from stately Victorian mansions to revitalized warehouses that now host some of the city’s coolest restaurants and nightclubs. It’s no surprise that Chicago was rated one of the top destinations in the U.S. by Gogobot users.

Luxury Hotels in Chicago
Many major hotels are concentrated in the Loop, close to Chi-Town’s most popular attractions including Millennium Park, the Navy Pier, the Willis Center, and the Magnificent Mile. The Drake Hotel Chicago, located on the Magnificent Mile, has long played host to visiting royalty and other celebrities. Another iconic Windy City hotel is the Palmer House, situated in the Loop and dating back to the 1870s. Another notable establishment is the Congress Plaza Hotel on Michigan Ave., known for its historic past and stunning architecture. There’s also the much lauded ACME Hotel Company with its minimalist furnishings, wacky artwork, and attentive staff. Or try the James Hotel Chicago for a little bit of pet-friendly flair. Most of the city’s notable hotels offer excellent amenities, ranging from fitness rooms, free continental breakfast, and indoor pools to indulgent spas that pamper guests with a huge menu of treatments. Chicago is a foodie’s dream, with culinary offerings that go well beyond the iconic deep dish pizza. Many of the city’s hotels also boast excellent restaurants, like the trendy NoMI Kitchen at the Park Hyatt or the iconic Palm Court at the Drake, where the afternoon tea is rumored to rival the British.

Hotels by Neighborhood
Regardless of the time of year of your visit, there’s plenty to see and do in Chicago. The city’s lovely Millennium Park is one of the newer attractions, situated in the Loop area of the city. It opened in 2004 and includes pavilions and amphitheaters for concerts, and is close to many hotels, including the Westin Michigan Avenue and Hilton Chicago. The Shedd Aquarium is a perfect place to bring the kiddos, and the Art Institute of Chicago is packed with iconic paintings. If it’s a great view you are after, try the W Hotel Chicago, which overlooks Lake Michigan and is only steps away from Navy Pier. Another lodging with views of the lake is the Essex Inn Chicago, located within easy walking distance of many of the city’s best attractions.

    rooms are dated but that is what you expect with a hotel from the 1800's. Halls are cool to browse and see photos of stars playing the Empire in the 50's - 70's and what years they were there. Easy walk to parks, navy pier, mueseums, etc. Our room was very small but apparently they vary greatly.

    A beautiful hotel perfectly situated on Magnificent Mile, allowing you easy access to the Art Institute, shopping and Navy Pier. Also, it is in a way, a piece of art itself. It was built in the 20's as an athletic club but closed it's doors after the Great Depression. When it was reopened as this hotel, they preserved all the ...

    A beautiful old hotel with a lot of flair. If you prefer the 'W' style, you might not like this, but it is nice to stay at places with some history. This is by no means run down, it's still quite luxurious, but has patina at the same time, in a good way.

    Because it’s a Doubletree, you get the chocolate chip cookie and you can use your rewards points. But because it’s their new boutique brand, you also get a glitz-chic interior and a hip rooftop bar (named ROOF) that lots of non-guests are willing to spend a lot of time waiting in line to visit. Decide for yourself whether that’s a ...

    This is a great hotel with beautiful views of the Lake and Navy Pier. It can be quite windy because you are by the water but it's a short cab ride from the Loop and Rush Street if you are going to dine at any restaurants there. The restaurant Wave is excellent and the concierge team can recommend some wonderful ...

    This hotel is pretty breathtaking. I walked in and was in awe of the lobby and then someone told me that the lobby was actually on the seventh floor. The actual lobby is opulent and open, with well-picked paintings on every wall. It blends seamlessly into the Alllium restaurant and bar/lounge (if this place weren’t so close to the Mag ...

    My mom and sister stayed at this hotel when they came to visit last summer and they were really happy with their room. One of my favorite features is the separation between the living area and the sleeping area, each with an entrance to the bathroom. The arm chairs are really comfortable, and there's a tiny kitchenette with coffee maker ...

    I wasn't very impressed with Hotel Sax. It shares a driveway with the House of Blues, and just walking up to the front entrance made me feel a little claustrophobic. Inside, the lobby is nice, but its decor (pretty fancy) doesn't quite match up with the feel of the guestrooms. Rooms are kind of drab, the decor is almost cheesy ...

    Maybe you don't want to stay in the thick of downtown or can't find a room... Hotel Lincoln is a good solution for you because it is just a short cab or train ride from The Loop and just steps away from Lincoln Park Zoo. The staff here tries harder- and that's solid gold in my book.
