    The Langham, Chicago

    0.07 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3030 reviewsTripAdvisor (3030)
    Free WiFi

    Situated on the banks of the Chicago River and less than a mile from the shopping on The Magnificent Mile, The Langham, Chicago is a hit with recent travelers. Opened in 2013, the hotel impresses guests with its attentive service, quiet location and riverfront views. Occupying the first 13 floors of a 52-story landmark skyscraper, The Langham, Chicago boasts 316 guest rooms and suites. Accommodations are outfitted with soaking tubs and rain showers, 55-inch LCD TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Past lodgers compliment the comfy beds and relaxing bathrooms and recommend booking a room with a river view to make the most of the hotel's location. When you're not relaxing in your room, you'll find plenty of other amenities at your fingertips. In addition to the Chuan Spa, the hotel also touts a health club and 67-foot-long indoor pool. Though many of downtown Chicago's top restaurants are within reach, previous visitors suggest giving the on-site restaurant, Travelle Kitchen + Bar, a try. As is the case throughout the property, guests say the service staff members at the restaurant are both attentive and friendly.

Guests praise the restaurant for its  American cuisine and unbeatable views of the iconic Chicago skyline. Or should you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, plan on spending some time at The Spa at Trump, which offers a wide array of services, as well as a fitness center and an indoor pool.

    0.11 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2548 reviewsTripAdvisor (2548)

    The Hotel Monaco Chicago lives up to many people's expectations of a Kimpton hotel, boasting bright, funky decor and an excellent location. Looking out over the Chicago River from its seat in the northeast corner of the Loop, this hotel stuns travelers with the Victorian-esque furnishings and bold patterns found throughout the hotel, including in the guest rooms. Accommodations also come with LCD televisions, honor bars and yoga mats, while kid- and pet-friendly amenities are available upon request. According to previous guests, fans of the Hotel Monaco style will enjoy a stay in the Chicago version, particularly because of the hotel's excellent customer service. IHG Rewards Club members will be able to get additional perks, like free Wi-Fi access, and can earn and redeem night credits here. But this property has a few unique characteristics worth noting. First, there are the in-room spa treatments. And let's not forget the flavorful Midwestern cuisine served at Fisk & Co., which travelers enjoy.

    Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel

    0.08 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1960 reviewsTripAdvisor (1960)

    Sitting on the northern fringes of the Loop (near Chicago's theater district), the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel is a popular choice for business and leisure travelers alike. Less than a block from the State/Lake Station – which connects to the Green, Purple, Brown, Orange and Pink "L" train lines – the hotel's primo location makes it easy to explore beyond your digs. On top of its convenience, guests were also impressed with their stay at this Renaissance property. Visitors love the large amount of space in the stylish and comfortable guest rooms thanks to amenities like flat-screen TVs, designer linens and excellent city views (many recommend requesting a room facing the river). Additionally, the hotel features an indoor swimming pool and a fitness center. The customer service also leaves a good impression, with travelers saying that the staff were very friendly. But guests are quick to complain about the high cost of parking here, which will add $69 a day to your final bill, as well as the noise in rooms overlooking the "L" train line tracks. The in-house restaurant also gets knocked for its prices, though travelers do say the food is good. Those looking to save can use Marriott Rewards points to cover the cost of their room.

    Virgin Hotels Chicago

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1792 reviewsTripAdvisor (1792)
    Free WiFi

    Opened in January 2015, The Virgin Hotels Chicago, the first hotel introduced by Virgin Airline owner Richard Branson, puts a twist on the traditional guest room. Called "The Chambers," standard rooms include a separate "Dressing Room," complete with a closet, a makeup vanity and sliding doors for privacy, and the "Sleeping Lounge" with the bed. The patent-pending custom beds feature ergonomic headboards and optional footboards so you can work or watch TV without back pain. Recent visitors cited these innovative features, plus the fun, stylish decor and complimentary Wi-Fi access, as reasons for a return visit. When you're not exploring the Loop and River North districts, you can choose between working up a sweat in the 25th-floor fitness center, grabbing a meal at one of the two on-site restaurants. Night owls can dance and listen to live music at two on-site nightclubs, including the rooftop lounge, Cerise. The property also boasts a coffee bar that transitions into a wine bar in the evenings. While guests love the on-site offerings and modern amenities, they also praised the staff as friendly, prompt and knowledgeable of the Chicago area.

    LondonHouse Chicago, Curio Collection by Hilton

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1978 reviewsTripAdvisor (1978)
    Free WiFi

    LondonHouse Chicago stood out to recent guests for two reasons: its location and its rooftop bar. Sitting at the corner of North Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive, the 1920s-era property sits just steps from the Magnificent Mile, offering views of downtown, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan from its popular rooftop venue. Though reviewers gushed about the rooftop's vantage point, they also admitted that the indoor and outdoor area gets congested, especially on weekends. If you want to enjoy the views without the crowds, consider booking a Vista Room, which come equipped with floor-to-ceiling windows that afford spectacular skyline views. Though all accommodations don't offer floor-to-ceiling windows, every room boasts a 55-inch TV, a minifridge and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Outside your digs, you'll find a 24-hour fitness center and a spa. The hotel's on-site restaurant, Land & Lake Kitchen, serves Midwestern food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a small food menu at the Tri Level Rooftop Bar. And since this hotel is part of Hilton's Curio Collection, members of the Hilton Honors rewards program can use or earn points by staying here.

    The Westin Chicago River North

    0.11 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2166 reviewsTripAdvisor (2166)

    If you're looking for a central location away from the late night noise of The Magnificent Mile, then The Westin Chicago River North is worth considering. This property draws travelers in search of both a convenient location and a peaceful night's sleep. Recent guests raved about the hotel's trendy atmosphere, complete with well-appointed furniture and artistic accents. Past visitors also praised the hotel's spacious and comfy guest rooms (especially the river view accomodations), which include Westin's signature Heavenly beds, high-speed internet access (for a fee), flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. The guest rooms also offer excellent views of Chicago from their windows; previous visitors recommended requesting a room on a higher floor for the vantage point alone. And as far as customer service goes, former guests described the property's employees as welcoming and attentive. While staying here, you'll have access to the Westin's fitness center, as well as the in-house restaurants, 320 Restaurant and Bar and Kamehachi Sushi Bar. Plus, Marriott Rewards members can collect or cash in rewards points by choosing to stay here.

    theWit, A DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel

    0.11 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2953 reviewsTripAdvisor (2953)

    As its name suggests, theWit aims to entertain. The decor – with its bright colors and stained-glass windows – evokes an amusing feel, while stand-up comedy can often be heard over the speakers in the hallways and lobby. It's no surprise why theWit tries so hard to get a rise out of you: Its perch on the end of the theater district (next door to the Chicago Theater in the Loop) means that this hotel has some steep competition. But unlike the surrounding performance spaces, this DoubleTree-affiliated property has much more than jokes. Should you be a bigger fan of movies than stand-up, consider hosting a viewing party in the on-site movie theater. Or guests recommend spending some time on the rooftop bar or in the hotel spa – both venues are bound to please. And the fun doesn't have to stop at bedtime: Guests love playful amenities like smartphone docking station, touchscreen telephones and flat-screen TVs. Because this Chicago hotel falls into the Hilton profile, members of the Hilton Honors rewards program can earn and redeem points here.

    Located within walking distance of Chicago's Magnificent Mile and about a mile away from Navy Pier (a family-friendly center with rides and the Chicago Children's Museum, plus adult-oriented attractions like the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and the Miller Lite Beer Garden), the River Hotel is ideally located for both business and leisure travelers. Standard guest rooms include ergonomic workstations, free Wi-Fi access, queen-sized beds, iPod docking stations, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and coffee and tea makers, along with 24-hour room service and complimentary exercise equipment (available upon request). Kitchenettes are available in select upgraded accommodations as well. The hotel is also home to Bella Bacino's Italian Bistro & Pizzeria, which serves the city's signature deep-dish pizza that recent patrons described as "delicious" and "awesome." Previous guests were impressed with the diligent housekeeping staff, the modern decor and the quiet rooms, especially given the central location. Others wished the rooms were larger and had king-sized beds, though almost all travelers highlighted the location and the standout customer service as reasons to return.

    St. Jane Chicago

    0.18 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 82 reviewsTripAdvisor (82)

    If you've come to the Windy City to party hard, then the St. Jane Chicago should be high on your list of potential places to stay. You won't have trouble finding this Chicago property: The building's slimmer top floors give it one of the more unique shapes on the Loop. And you won't forget where you are once you get inside, either; art deco style design choices give the property a unifying feel of comfortable luxury. Though past guests agreed that the hotel's location couldn't be beaten and generally enjoyed their accommodations, a handful of recent travelers expressed disappointment with the customer service. Rooms at the hotel are simply decorated and include modern perks like complimentary Wi-Fi access and smart TVs. Or, opt for an ultra-luxurious experience in The Tower accommodations of the hotel, which include access to an exclusive rooftop bar, The Noble. Otherwise, grab a bite or a drink at the on-site restaurant, Free Rein.

    For boutique digs in the heart of Chicago's River North neighborhood, consider staying at the Kinzie Hotel. Named for John Kinzie, an 18th-century businessman who helped develop the city, this property offers modern accommodations with white and gray furnishings, blue carpets and city maps displayed on accent walls. Standard room amenities include flat-screen TVs, plush bathrobes, iHome clock radios and Keurig coffee makers, while suites boast floor-to-ceiling windows with blackout shades and city views. No matter which space you choose, you'll enjoy additional perks, such as daily continental breakfast, 24-hour fitness and business center access, high-speed internet and evening cocktail receptions, thanks to your $14.95 nightly service fee. Despite offering "out of this world" breakfasts and "impressive" room service from an adjacent eatery, there is no full-service restaurant on-site.

Other attractions located nearby include The Magnificent Mile and performing arts venues like The Chicago Theatre and the Oriental Theatre.

    Hotel Chicago Downtown, Autograph Collection

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1432 reviewsTripAdvisor (1432)

    Now a part of the Marriott brand of hotels, the Hotel Chicago Downtown moves to the beat of its own drum – literally. Rubbing elbows with the House of Blues, the hotel benefits from its musical surroundings. Feed your need for something spicy at the House of Blues Crossroads Restaurant or explore the neighboring music scene on State Street. As for the hotel itself, travelers describe it as a mix of quirky and classy: The common areas are dressed in bright colors and angular furniture, while the spacious guest rooms boast snakeskin wingback chairs and tufted leather headboards. You will find some recognizable aspects in these accommodations, including 42-inch flat-screen TVs and iHome sound systems. Visitors in search of the boutique hotel experience appreciate the Hotel Chicago Downtown's one-of-a-kind ambiance (along with the brand-backed perk that Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here), but not everyone was bowled over. Some guests warn that for the price, nearby hotels offer better service. Still, it's location North Dearborn Street in Chicago's River North neighborhood is perfect for exploring downtown.
