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.

    My friend and I were road tripping across America and our second to last night was in Chicago. We booked The Palmer House as we wanted a nice place because we were tired of staying in random hotels along the way. We also needed a place that was pet friendly and to our surprise this gorgeous hotel was! The puppy ...

    I've stayed in all but one of the 5 star properties in Chicago and I'd rate this one the best. The rooms are exceptional -- spacious, well appointed, great design, and exceptional views. The fitness facilities are large and have the latest equipment. Service is also top notch. The only things I didn't like about the property are 1) the ...

    The Drake is fancy living in a way that I thought only existed in movies until I went to the Drake. They got high ceilings, chandeliers, ornate carpeting. Soft inoffensive piano music, played live, follows you as you make your way around the lobby. It’s easy to get lost in this place. It’s hard to believe that they’re as pet ...

    A treat for business travelers, elegant, functional, and super comfortable. However, it is massive and somewhat commercial. Service was dynamic and efficient. The area is good, just a few mins walk to 'Magnificent Mile' and 'Millennium Park. Do explore: visit the 'Art Institute of Chicago’; it has a great Impressionism and post-impressionism collection.

For those of you in the advertising industry, the location couldn't be much more convenient for many of the agencies on N Michigan Ave. For you shoppers out there, the hotel is a hop skip and jump from ...

    A modern hotel located in Streeterville, MileNorth is a good pick for those who like updated décor and proximity to lots of shopping. Though MileNorth is close to lots of shops and restaurants, the street it’s on doesn’t feel too busy. The dim lobby is easy on the eyes, but also sorta funny, since it features an abstract-light design behind ...

    Located in just a stone’s throw from Michigan Ave., Omni Hotel is close enough to pretty much anything you need.

The décor of the hotel features a lot of dark woods ...

    The rooms at Hotel Lincoln are small, but I think that's a tiny, tiny problem considering all it's got going. It's in a great location, just steps away from the zoo and the lake, and it has incredible views. The decor is warm and eye catching, with lots of interesting details (I love the drawer pulls on the check-in desk). ...
