U.S. News Review

You'll find this boutique-style hotel attached to the The Shops at North Bridge in Chicago's River North area, just a short walk from the Chicago River and several L train stops. Unlike the city's other high-end accommodations, which tend to skew contemporary, this Conrad property exudes an old-school sumptuousness with rich jewel tones, marble floors, crystal chandeliers and plush furniture. Guest rooms here are not quite as decadent as the lobby area: Accommodations are dressed in brown hues and more simplistic decor. But visitors don't seem to mind: Recent guests especially like the Conrad's cozy bedding and pillows, large bathrooms and high-tech amenities like iPod alarm clocks and flat-screen TVs. During your stay, you will have access to the Condrad's Terrace Rooftop, where you can enjoy a cocktail and spectacular views of the city. For something more filling, try the Southern cuisine served up at The Terrace Restaurant. Chicago visitors also choose this hotel for its proximity to shopping, both at the mall and out on the nearby Magnificent Mile. What's more, Hilton HHonors members can collect or cash in rewards points here.

Critic Reviews


“This hotel's Art Deco-inspired lobby avoids feeling like a period piece through its clean-line furniture and creative floral arrangements, and the rooms here — featuring European duvets, oversize pillows, plush bathrobes, and slippers — aim to pamper.”


“The modern dining room is romantically lit, the chairs are fully upholstered and the jazzy music from the lounge fills the entire dining room. It's a great setting in which to enjoy an extensive variety of fine seafood.”
Award: AAA/CAA Four Diamond Lodgings 2015

Lonely Planet

“Euro sleek, urban chic. ... Adding to the discreet sense of luxury, the lobby is hiding on the 6th floor of Michigan Ave’s North Bridge Shops.”
