    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.

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.

    The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center
    Lombard, IL
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 902 reviewsTripAdvisor (902)
    Free Parking
    The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center scrapes the sky above Lombard, Illinois, about 20 miles west of Chicago. Although regional public transportation will make it relatively easy for leisure travelers to get into and out of the city, it's a trek and this Westin hotel is better suited for business travelers. Visitors can log onto the Internet for free in the hotel's common spaces (there's a charge for room access), or they can get the job done in the on-site business center and meeting rooms. According to recent guests, this Westin is nothing to write home about, but fans of the Marriott-affiliated hotel chain will find that the Lombard version lives up to standards. Guest rooms are dressed in white and hardwood decor, and come equipped with flat-screen TVs, Heavenly bath fixtures and sizeable work desks. Travelers also appreciate this Westin's decent room rate, which they say is much lower than that of a Chicago hotel and for which visitors can enjoy access to the property's indoor pool and fitness center. This hotel's restaurants also win favor with visitors, with prime steak served at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse and fresh seafood served at Holy Mackerel!. The hotel is even friendlier on the wallets of Marriott Bonvoy program members, who can use points to pay.

    Le Méridien Chicago - Oakbrook Center
    Chicago, IL
    16.9 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 315 reviewsTripAdvisor (315)
    Free Parking
    Even though this Le Méridien property sits around 18 miles west of downtown Chicago, recent travelers said the hotel's location is ideal for a staycation or a weekend shopping getaway. (Oakbrook Center is one of the largest malls in the nation, with more than 160 specialty stores, 20 restaurants and grab-and-go eateries and an AMC movie theater.) But if your perfect vacation doesn't involve spending a ton of cash, don't fret. An on-site fitness center is available free of charge, and the property's two restaurants – Longitude 87 and El Tapeo – offer tasty meals and drinks at reasonable prices, according to past guests. When you're ready to catch some zzz's, unwind in your comfortable digs. All guest rooms feature crisp white linens and wooden furniture, and include amenities like 48-inch flat-screen televisions and Illy espresso machine. However, be prepared to pay for in-room Wi-Fi. And because of this property's connection to the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
