I was here for a work conference. The building is very historic and the interior is all dark-wood-carved. I was pleasantly surprised that the room was entirely renovated(given the age of the building). This club is the kind of place where you actually take pictures of the interior, because it is SO ORNATE! It is right on Michigan Ave. by... More

We really enjoy staying at the University Club of Chicago. The less expensive rooms are very small but really lovely. The rooms are perfect for two. We often have our two kids with us and can get a roll away squeezed in for one of them. We are cozy in that situation. This last time we stayed overlooking Lake Michigan... More

We spent two nights at the University Club by invitation of a member. As other reviewers correctly stated, our interior room was small and had no natural light, but was VERY quiet. The room was clean and well-appointed, the bed comfortable, the air conditioning quiet and effective. However, there should have been much brighter lamps in the room, considering the... More

Best location for seeing Chicago, just across from Millenial Park and close to Art Institute. Lovely rooms and fantastic views from the dining room. Valet parking. Just a perfect place to stay in Chicago for a show, dinner, walk and museum.

Excellent location in downtown Chicago just a half block from Millennium Park and a block from the Art museum. Hotel is dated but room was refurbished and very comfortable. Gym and weight center were quite enjoyable. For the money, one of the great values to be had in Chicago. Would definitely stay again. Only warning, ask for a room away... More

I stayed here for a wedding and had a great experience. While I prefer staying in river north closer to the nightlife, this location in the loop was very good. especially for millennium park and the art institute. there's also plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance. the hotel itself is a beautiful old building worth exploring. they also...

I am not sure if non-members or non-reciprocal club members can stay here. The location is fantastic - across the street from Millennium Park, close to el stations and pretty easy to get in and out of. We had flown into Midway, took the orange line into the city and it was a quick walk from one of the orange... More

Lunch here with a member was exceptional. Refined, professional service and world-class cuisine. Every dish was tasty and beautifully presented. For once we could carry on a conversation without shouting over other noisy diners or an intrusive sound system. The fact that it's across the street from the Art Institute makes for a wonderful, restorative afternoon. When the outdoor terrace... More

We stayed there for two nights to attend a wedding reception held there. The reception itself was just over-the-top elegant and lovely, and the library and main dining/reception rooms may be the most remarkable venues for a wedding reception I've seen. Our room was comfortable, quiet, everything up-to-date, and the athletic/workout facilities at the club -- available to guests --... 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.
