    Chicago, IL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3284 reviewsTripAdvisor (3284)
    Free WiFi

    The Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago is conveniently positioned on North Wabash Avenue in the Near North Side neighborhood of Chicago, offering easy access to both the business-centric Loop and the city's top attractions, including Navy Pier. From many of the minimalist-design rooms, you'll get a picturesque view of the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower, all brightly reflected in Lake Michigan. Accommodations here also include floor-to-ceiling windows, fully equipped kitchens (with Nespresso machines) and bathrooms with limestone finishes. Recent guests recommend booking a room with a river view to take full advantage of the hotel's enviable location. Cap off a Windy City day at Terrace 16, the hotel's on-site restaurant and bar. 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.

    Chicago Athletic Association
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2190 reviewsTripAdvisor (2190)
    Free WiFi

    What recent visitors appreciate most about the Chicago Athletic Association hotel is its distinct point of view. The hotel is housed in the building that was once home to the Chicago Athletic Association, and its Venetian Gothic architecture dates back to the 1890s. Staying true to its athletic heritage, the hotel's designers repurposed elements of the original club into the property's vintage look. For instance, a pommel horse is used as a bench and nightstands feature tennis racquet leather grips for legs. Beyond the interesting aesthetics, rooms also offer boxing-style robes, complimentary Wi-Fi access, C.O. Bigelow toiletries and bedside tables with USB flash drive outlets. Aside from the unique interiors, travelers also rave about the rooftop restaurant, Cindy's. Housed within a vaulted glass and steel atrium, the space offers views of Millennium Park (situated across the street from the hotel), the Art Institute of Chicago and Lake Michigan. Equally impressive are the hotel's five other bars and eateries, ranging from an on-site Shake Shack to a more formal farm-to-table restaurant. Reviewers particularly liked the Game Room bar, which is located in the original billiards room of the athletic club and features games like shuffleboard and bocce ball. It should come as no surprise that the hotel also features a 24-hour fitness center with complimentary, trainer-led group runs along Lake Michigan every Saturday at 8 a.m. You can also get your workout in riding around the Windy City on the hotel's complimentary bikes (available seasonally).

    Free WiFi

    Two blocks west of The Magnificent Mile and four blocks north of the Loop, the Kimpton Palomar Chicago is a convenient lodging choice for sightseers. This Kimpton hotel offers easy access to some of the Windy City's most popular attractions. But there's more to this hotel than its location.

Although you'll be surrounded by the numerous eateries of Chicago's Near North area, some guests recommend trying the New American cuisine served at the trendy Sable Kitchen & Bar. Recent travelers also loved the wealth of freebies provided in the lobby, including complimentary coffee in the morning and wine tastings in the evening. And the service staff – from the concierge to the housekeeping employees – earns high marks as well. Members of the IHG Rewards Club can earn benefits, like complimentary Wi-Fi, by choosing to stay here.

    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.

    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2175 reviewsTripAdvisor (2175)

    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.

    Eaglewood Resort & Spa
    Itasca, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 668 reviewsTripAdvisor (668)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    If you want to have your cake and eat it too, the Eaglewood Resort & Spa might be a good choice for you. Since it's located in Itasca, about 26 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, the resort is close enough to the city to visit when you want, but far enough away to feel peaceful and serene. Guest rooms here are spacious and come equipped with pillow-top matresses, mahogany furnishings and flat-screen TVs while suites boast private balconies. For stellar views, travelers insist on booking a rooftop suite, which are separate from the resort's main building, adding an extra dose of privacy. If you decide not to head into the Windy City, you'll find plenty to do right here: Eaglewood features a fitness center, an indoor pool, an 18-hole golf course and even an on-site bowling alley. You'll also find a 10,000-square-foot, full-service spa, which earns praise from R&R-seekers for its laundry list of massages and skin treatments. And when mealtime rolls around, Burnham's satisfies a wide variety of cravings with its buffet, while Prairie River Fire Pit and Patio offers a more refined atmosphere. Visitors also rave about the hotel staff at this property. Though recent guests enjoyed the expansiveness of the property, they do concede that it's easy to get lost here.

    The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2884 reviewsTripAdvisor (2884)

    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 Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1037 reviewsTripAdvisor (1037)

    This Kimpton brand property inside the Loop offers a convenient home base for both business and leisure travelers. Recent guests were not only impressed with the complimentary service – which include the brand's signature pet amenities and evening wine receptions – but also the stylish accommodations. Rooms feature modern decor made up of gold and black hues, but some said late night street noise can be a problem. Recent guests recommend booking a room on the upper floors for a quieter stay. Still, each room does come equipped with creature comforts like an HD flat-screen TV and an iHome alarm clock. What's more, discerning travelers praise the Kimpton Hotel Allegro's customer service: Guests describe the employees here as warm and welcoming.

    Fans of the Westin brand will have a few options when it comes to lodging in and around Chicago; this particular hotel is located on the outskirts of the city, about 15 miles west of O'Hare International Airport and a little less than 30 miles northwest of the city center. Although you might save some coin staying here, some recent visitors say that this location offers a few annoyances, such as late night noise from the hotel atrium and a long commute into the Windy City. However, if you're looking for a comfy place to bed down that's close to the airport, this Westin outpost is well-equipped. Rooms are outfitted with the Westin Heavenly beds (and dog beds, upon request), flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access (for a fee).
