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

Great location right on Michigan Avenue opposite Millennium Park. Staff were courteous and helpful. The room was spacious and well-appointed. The facilities in the Club are extensive. An excellent choice of restaurants and bars. The only negative was that the old diamond windows in our bedroom were pretty dirty - spoiling the view.

We got married at The University Club downtown Chicago late November last year. We were so very happy with the ease of planning (THANK YOU CHARLOTTE!) and the flow of the day. My family are in Illinois but we live in the UK so planning was never going to be easy. However, Charlotte at the club made the process as... More

I was in a wedding here so I am not sure what the hotel is like but I can say the food they served was great, although it was lunch, It was also beautiful with all the stained glass windows, it looked like a castle. If you are into modern buildings it probably won't be your thing.

I stayed at the University Club while travelling on business in April 2014. For a downtown hotel, my room was surprisingly large and roomy! I had a great view out of my bay window onto Michigan Avenue and the Art Institute. The room was clean and updated and the bed was really comfortable. The only negatives were the noise outside...
