U.S. News Review

Previous lodgers rave about this North Michigan Avenue hotel's refinement and its unbeatable location. Sitting just steps from The Magnificent Mile, the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago is central to all of the city's best restaurants, shops and nightlife. After you've sufficiently tested the limits of your credit card, retreat to one of the hotel's soundproofed spa treatment rooms to enjoy a relaxing massage or a skin renewal treatment. Before you call it a night, previous guests highly recommend sitting down to dinner in the Allium's dining room, where diners are treated to fresh, farm-to-table Midwest cuisine. When it's time to bed down, this Four Seasons hotel's well-appointed accommodations provide a comfortable escape. Previous guests love the elegant decor, which combines contemporary fittings (like flat-screen TVs and iHome stereos) with 20th century-inspired design accents and spacious marble bathrooms. Recent visitors recommend splurging on the lake-view accomodations, rather than the rooms with the city skyline vistas.

Critic Reviews


“Head up to the rooms, which start on floor 30 — a height where many hotels end or never quite reach — and tower up floor 46, giving you views of the lake and city that rival some of the best vantage points in town.”
Award: Frommer's Highly Recommended


“The elegant rooms are inspired by 1940s French decor and have spalike baths with Chinese marble.”
Award: Fodor's Choice

Travel + Leisure

“Inside, the marble lobby contains oversize crystal chandeliers and a grand central staircase leading to the ... guest rooms, all with panoramic views of Lake Michigan or the downtown skyline.”
Award: Travel + Leisure 500 World's Best Hotels 2015


“It's one of the city's nicest hotels, and the location near the historic Water Tower and the Hancock Observatory can't be beat.”
