You will be hard pressed to find a more classically elegant, yet modern, place to stay in the heart of Chicago. The location is perfect, across from Millennium Park and adjacent to the Michigan Mile. The service was fantastic -- from Antoine who greeted us and managed our bags and provided a history lesson about the building and its renovations... More

The rooms were small but nice. They definitely want you to spend more money...the mini fridge was so packed I had to move things out to make room for my own drinks. But the thing that bothered me the most was after we returned home I found an additional charge for $137. I called and was told it was for... More

I stayed here one night with my husband and 4 year-old. The room was a little tight for the 3 of us and a stroller, but it was perfectly fine for one night. Amazing location right across the street from Millennium Park, Maggie Daley Park, and not too far of a walk to the Magnificent Mile. The lobby had an... More

From the tiled mosaic entryway and second story check-in, to the rooftop "Cindy's" bar, this is a unique and fun place to visit. The elevator walls are skinned with the flooring form the original playing courts, with great patina from the many years of wear that they supported. My room featured 2 comfy beds, a nicely tiled bathroom, upgrade toiletries,... More

I have not stayed in the hotel, but have dined and had drinks. Both are wonderful. Drinks at Cindy's is a must while looking down at Millenium and Maggie Daley Parks as well as the fabulous lakefront. Lunch at Cherry Circle was wonderful. This is a beautifully renovated boutique hotel that was restored to it's 1893 origins.The staff is very... More

This hotel is so great. My room was pretty small, but it didn't matter because everything was beautiful and worked well. It's built with all the original wood and details, but upgraded in the right spots, like outlets where you need them. The sheets were beautifully soft and did not feel like most hotels that have overbleached their sheets for... More

I stayed at CAA at the end of May, first time to Chicago. It was perfect to be right across the street from Millennium park, I could walk right out of the hotel and run right on Lake Michigan. I was on business while traveling, it was a perfect location to run out and grab a bite to eat, or... More

An old 'gentlemans' club, the foyer is amazing and pretty cool insight into how others used to live. Staff are very engaged and helpful. Rooms are a little disappointing. I has a 'classic Kong's and it was very small, and has no tea/coffee facilities (i have never seen that before). The rooms seem to follow this lighting trend of dull... More

This will now be my go to hotel in Chicago. The service is fantastic, the decor is awesome. Right across from Millennium park. Access to the red and blue lines is very close! Lots of great restaurants around. Parking across the street at Millennium park for $39 over might. Great outlets in the hotel, Cindy's on the roof top has... More

The decor in this newly renovated historic property is stunning, the staff helpful and polite. We ate at the Shake Shack a couple of times and it was delicious. The service in the drawing room/lobby area was great as well - I enjoyed some great hot tea by the fire in the evening. The room had so many little touches... More

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.
