Overview

Historic hotel with grand lobby and ballrooms
Windows aren't soundproof so lots of city noise creeps in guest rooms

The Hilton Chicago has an interesting history: The 1968 Democratic Convention riots took place at its front door, and the presidential suite has hosted a plethora of U.S. presidents. Yet despite its relevance in American history, the Hilton Chicago fails to impress some of its visitors. Recent guests say this property is a bit of a letdown compared to other Hilton outposts, citing subpar service and tired guest room decor. Still, the spacious accommodations — many of which have two bathrooms and all of which house flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and touch-panel concierge services – are popular with recent guests. The Hilton Chicago also features an indoor pool and easy access to the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Grant Park, not to mention a business center and ample meeting space. And whether you're here on business or for pleasure, many visitors recommend the 720 South Bar & Grill as a good spot to grab a meal and drinks after a long day. Members of the Hilton Honors program can accrue or redeem points here.
