My mom and I planned a trip to eat dinner at the Cherry Circle Room and arrived early to check out the rooftop bar, the game room, lobby and lounge. Our first contact person was Johnnie and he was so pleasant and extremely helpful. He clearly directed us to the restaurant and informed us that the rooftop bar was fantastic... More

Hotel has a fantastic location right opposite the millennium park and 'the bean'. Rooms very stylish but a little dark- especially the closet area. Also not a lot of clothes storage space. Great bathrooms though. Communal spaces of hotel are great, especially the games room. Big queues to visit the rooftop bar/restaurant so be sure to book ahead (at least... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. The room was clean and had a great nostalgic feel. The employees were all very nice. We definitely want to stay here again.

First of all, everyone that works here was SO friendly! Literally, EVERY person that worked here in any capacity that I ran into was so helpful and kind, including the air conditioner technician that I happened to share the elevator with at one point. The valet men were all also first class! My room was fine, I wasnt expecting a... More

Spent two nights there and I have to say it is an absolutely gorgeous hotel! But running a hotel is way more than worrying about its look. The room was very nice, but the humming from the electrical room nextdoors kept both of us from sleeping! We had to use earplugs! Yeah, earplugs in a four-star hotel. The fan in... More

Don't forget to check out the nooks and crannies. A classic place to stay. The service was great, the views superb, conveniently located, a fabulous lobby, fun game room, classic architecture...all with a lot of history.

This is a gorgeous place to spend a night. I came to chicago for a birthday weekend, and the staff upgraded me to a suite, sent champagne, macaroons, and a handwritten card, and we had a great time at Shake Shack for lunch and Cindy's. Our room was not ready until after 3pm, which would have been fine except the... More

Front desk was very efficient. Tried each restaurant and overall food was great. Cindys had personable wait staff. The Cherry Circle although atmosphere and food were excellent the wait staff could use some personality. We were in hotel for here days and they could have been friendlier.

The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel nailed it right out of the gate! The guest services team was so great to my daughters and Boston Terrier. From pre-arrival to check-out, the experience was stellar.

Booked a short weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. Lara in concierge did an excellent job in setting up our dinners and activities. Great hotel and staff. Recommend the rooms overlooking the park if you can swing the fee. Cool vibe and decor.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
