    Four Seasons Hotel Chicago

    1.58 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3584 reviewsTripAdvisor (3584)
    Free WiFi

    Previous lodgers rave about this North Michigan Avenue hotel's refinement and unbeatable location. Sitting just steps from Chicago's 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 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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2682 reviewsTripAdvisor (2682)
    Free WiFi

    This fashionable hotel on East Walton gathers acclaim from recent guests for its elegant design and prime location in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. According to many travelers, you can't go wrong with a stay here – in large part because of the hotel's exceptional customer service. The Waldorf Astoria Chicago also wins favor from vacationing couples with unexpected amenities like in-room fireplaces, bathrooms with separate showers and tubs and double vanities with inset LCD TVs. For a quick bite to eat, the property has a pastry shop and the French-inspired Margeaux Brasserie. But if you're hankering for something more substantial than cafe fare, recent guests recommend exploring the Gold Coast's acclaimed restaurants and bars that are all within reach. And when you need a break from the Windy City's hustle and bustle, relax with a massage, a quick workout or a dip in the indoor pool at the hotel's Spa & Health Club. Because of its ties to the Waldorf Astoria brand, this hotel allows members of the Hilton Honors rewards program to accrue or redeem points.

    Thompson Chicago

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2622 reviewsTripAdvisor (2622)
    Free WiFi

    The Thompson Chicago sits in the Near North Side neighborhood, one block back from Chicago's Michigan Avenue near Oak Street Beach and close to many attractions and restaurants. Recent guests loved the location of this Thompson property and all agree the decor in the lobby, including the large fireplace with its library feel, strike a nice balance between refined and homey. Past visitors said that everyone from the general manager to the doorman is congenial – and they're especially skilled at remembering names here. The Thompson Chicago's rooms offer a sleek, sophisticated design, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Lake Michigan and The Magnificent Mile, 400-thread-count Sferra linens and bathrooms with rainfall showers. Additional conveniences include the two dining options that are popular with guests as well as locals. Nico Osteria is an Italian-inspired seafood restaurant, serving dishes like lobster spaghetti and swordfish pancetta, while the Salone Nico keeps up the European feel with an extensive wine list from Greece and Italy, although both dining options can be a bit pricey for some travelers' tastes.

    The Talbott Hotel, A Joie de Vivre Hotel

    1.53 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3663 reviewsTripAdvisor (3663)
    Free WiFi

    Located in the Near North part of Chicago, The Talbott Hotel is known for rolling out a red carpet experience. In addition to offering standard hotel amenities like a fitness center and meeting rooms, this Joie de Vivre property specializes in truly boutique hospitality. Guests say the customer service here is exceptional and find the hotel's elegant decor refreshingly well-appointed. Visitors love the draped curtains and luxury linens found in the guest rooms, as well as the unique furniture and city views. Accommodations receive mixed reviews though, and some past guests were disappointed with their room's storage options. This hotel appeals to both business and leisure travelers with its convenient location, dog-friendly policies and tasty American fare served at the in-house restaurant, 20 East. But it could be possible that those who love this hotel most are young girls: The Talbott Hotel offers special American Girl Place packages, which include perks like a travel bed for your American Girl doll, milk and two Sprinkles cupcakes at turndown, and for an additional fee, a horse-drawn carriage ride to American Girl Place on The Magnificent Mile.

    Viceroy Chicago

    1.32 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 625 reviewsTripAdvisor (625)
    Free WiFi

    Nestled within Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood by The Magnificent Mile's shops and the 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck, the Viceroy Chicago is a convenient option for leisure travelers and history buffs. Inside, you will find 1920s-themed guest rooms and suites with bold accent walls and period-inspired furnishings, plus various modern conveniences, including Nespresso machines, rain showers and free in-room Wi-Fi access. Additional perks like a seasonal rooftop pool and lounge, a fitness center and Somerset, an American restaurant that's helmed by Michelin-starred chef Lee Wolen, are located outside the rooms. Although this Viceroy property lacks other amenities, such as a spa and a business center, many previous guests raved about the Viceroy's "outstanding" service, "spectacular" rooftop and "beautiful" rooms. What's more, several appreciated having access to the hotel's complimentary Tesla car service. If you opt to forgo using the Viceroy's Tesla, you can get around via the L (the closest subway station sits a few blocks away). Or, you can use your own set of wheels, but keep in mind the $72 overnight valet parking fee.

    Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile

    Chicago, IL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4800 reviewsTripAdvisor (4800)
    Free WiFi

    There's a good chance that you can enjoy the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile's upscale amenities for a more reasonable rate than the other nearby high-end hotels. What amenities? Try marble bathrooms with separate tubs and showers, Bose sound systems and picturesque views of downtown Chicago and the John Hancock Observatory available in the rooms and suites. Recent guests say the Sofitel Chicago's accommodations possess a cosmopolitan, French flair representative of the posh Sofitel brand. The distinctly Euro feel infused in the modern decor is certainly easy on the eyes, but visitors are even more impressed by the hotel's convenient location – it's the rhombus-shaped building just two blocks off The Magnificent Mile – and its friendly staff members. When staying here, you will have complimentary access to the property's on-site fitness center and, according to past guests, you'll need it should you choose to dine on-site. Travelers are fond of the contemporary French cuisine served for moderate rates at the Café des Architectes. What's more, members of the Le Club Accorhotels rewards program can cut costs even further by using points to pay for their stay.

    Nestled along the southwestern edge of Chicago's Lincoln Park, this Joie de Vivre hotel serves as a convenient home base for visitors to the Windy City looking for just a touch of peace and quiet.

Rooms represent what the hotel calls "classic urban Midwest charm of Chicago," featuring in-room amenities like HD TVs, iHome docking stations, coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Meanwhile, on-site perks include a fitness center and complimentary seasonal bike rentals. Recent visitors commend the Hotel Lincoln's employees as some of the most personable and helpful they've encountered. Plus the property is home to two restaurants that earn a thumbs-up from guests and locals alike. Perennial Virant dishes out expertly crafted farm-to-table cuisine, while The J. Parker (on the hotel's rooftop) provides panoramic park and lake views along with a smattering of cocktails and lighter bites.

    The Drake, A Hilton Hotel

    1.53 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4465 reviewsTripAdvisor (4465)

    Travelers love the Old World elegance than defines The Drake: think New York's Plaza Hotel done Chicago-style. Once the preferred choice of both Winston Churchill and Princess Diana, this Gold Coast neighborhood outpost knows how to deliver a quality experience. (If you really want to blend in with the posh clientele while you're here, recent guests suggest attending the traditional English tea service in the Palm Court, offered every afternoon.) Unlike its trend-setting neighbors, The Drake boasts a distinctly vintage ambiance with high ceilings, upholstered walls and glittering chandeliers. Though recent guests admitted the hotel could use some remodeling, they also said the property's old-fashioned style is exactly what makes it so charming. And because of its Hilton Hotels ties, guest rooms here include signature Serenity beds and Italian marble bathrooms, as well as modern amenities like flat-screen HD TVs and high-speed internet access (for a fee). Plus, if you're a member of the Hilton Honors program, you can accrue or redeem points here.

    The Whitehall Hotel

    1.58 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2055 reviewsTripAdvisor (2055)
    Free WiFi

    This landmark hotel in the Near North section of Chicago – just a block from The Magnificent Mile –offers a taste of European elegance in the midst of the city's windy bustle. Guests particularly love The Whitehall Hotel's demure sophistication, which emanates from its antique furniture and abundance of artwork. However, bear in mind that because this is an older property, guest rooms tend to be on the smaller side, which can be a deterrent for visiting families. That said, each accommodation offers a vintage aura without sacrificing convenience, sporting Egyptian cotton linens, complimentary wireless Internet access, a flat-screen HD TV and mahogany furniture. Guests say that the 2013 renovations paid off, describing the look and feel of this hotel as cozy and stylish, though some think more could have been done. However, recent visitors assure that the on-site restaurant, Fornetto Mei, and friendly service staff (the doormen, especially) more than make up for any lingering issues.

    The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago

    1.58 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2868 reviewsTripAdvisor (2868)

    Sitting right at the corner of Michigan and Delaware avenues, this Westin hotel is just steps from the Magnificent Mile's best boutiques. And if you've got kids in tow, you'll appreciate the hotel's proximity to Navy Pier (roughly 15 minutes away by bus). Guests note that The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago's downtown location is its best feature, but convenience does have its drawbacks. Some previous visitors complain of small rooms that could use a facelift and a noisy atmosphere due to traffic on the street below. Do your best to reserve a spot on a higher floor; no matter which room you end up in, you'll find it features Westin's signature Heavenly bed and bath fixtures, as well as a flat-screen TV and wireless Internet access (for a fee). Plus, several travelers say that they're willing to forgive the cramped conditions as a result of this Westin's reasonably priced rates. When you're not out on the town, you can get your workout in at the hotel fitness center, or you can stop counting calories and enjoy a meal at The Grill on the Alley, which receives praise for its prime steak and fresh seafood. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Ambassador Chicago

    1.09 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1889 reviewsTripAdvisor (1889)
    Free WiFi

    Ambassador Chicago occupies a historic building in the Gold Coast neighborhood of the city, but don't expect the Old World ambiance that often comes with older hotels. Rather than feature tinkling chandeliers and heavy tapestries, the lobby at this Preferred outpost feels crisp with all-white decor and simple, elegant furniture. Meanwhile, rooms offer 300-thread-count Frette linens, complimentary Wi-Fi access and minibars in addition to a sleek, modern design. Some of Chicago's top attractions (such as The Magnificent Mile and the Lincoln Park Zoo) are located within walking distance, and recent guests say they prefer this boutique property to the larger chain hotels throughout the city. Perhaps an even bigger draw than the eclectic design is the Booth One  restaurant, a favorite celebrity watering hole. For this restaurant, James Beard Award-winner Jean-Georges Vongerichten created a menu full of regional flavors based on farm-to-table cuisine.

    Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago

    1.58 miles away

    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1388 reviewsTripAdvisor (1388)

    The Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago – just off The Magnificent Mile – draws attention from Chicago visitors in search of an "Old Chicago" experience. The sizable property is rumored to have been a favorite haunt of Al Capone back in the day. Having first opened in 1927, this sizable hotel features a combination of unique accents – like ornate chandeliers and antique furniture in the lobby – and contemporary fittings. Rooms boast minibars, spa-like bathrooms and 40-inch flat-screen TVs. Despite the updated decor, many previous visitors describe this hotel as having a lot of character, although some do lament the small size of the accommodations (a common complaint for historic properties). Meanwhile, the Millennium Knickerbocker offers a selection of facilities that suit a variety of traveler interests: The hotel's location and fitness center appeal to leisure visitors, while the on-site business center and meeting rooms earn praise from business folks. And the in-house NiX Restaurant, which serves classic American cuisine, appeals to guests and locals alike.

    Located a few blocks northwest of The Magnificent Mile in the Gold Coast area, Claridge House appeals to vacationers who desire a neighborhood feel without straying too far from downtown Chicago's amenities. Though you could easily spend your entire stay visiting the nearby eateries and beaches, travelers recommend saving time for a drink or meal in the lobby restaurant, Juniper Spirits & Oysters. The hotel also houses fitness and business centers and a spa that offers facials, nail services and waxing treatments. After a busy day on or off the property, retreat to your guest room or suite. All 165 pet-friendly accommodations feature neutral color schemes and come outfitted with complimentary Wi-Fi access, pillow-top beds, minifridges, coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. Select rooms also boast gas fireplaces, while suites offer separate living areas and an additional bathroom. Despite some reports of inadequate soundproofing inside the accommodations, most past guests appreciated the comfortable beds and tasteful decor.
