The rooms are on the top floor (40) of the building offering large windows with incredible views. The Club is on the edge of town and feels Old Chicago-ish, even though the building is modern-you even open your hotel door with a real key. If the rooms were upgraded I would rate excellent. There is a meager continental breakfast offering... More

I had to be on the outskirts of Chicago for business but wanted to be able to see the sights while I was there. My husband joined me and we chose the Buckingham Athletic Club for its amenities and proximity to the Blue Line. From the minute we arrived, we were impressed. Reception was wonderful. We arrived several hours before... More

Hotel is on the top floor, and only about 22 rooms. The room we stayed in, a suite really, looked straight down Congress Parkway toward the Lake! We had a views starting from Navy Pier and extending out toward the western suburbs. The staff was awesome, especially Angela at the front desk! Location was perfect for Christmastime--we walked to shopping... More

I was in Chicago with my daughter to watch her run the marathon this past weekend. I chose this location because it was close to the start and finish of the race and was curious how the hotel looked in the same building as the Chicago Stock Exchange. It was way cooler than I thought, especially that I arrived early... More

This hotel is easily a 4 star. Great staff, nice big rooms. Beautiful views, morning coffee and fruit. Can't really think of any complaints. Beds are not 4 seasons, but no complaints. Waking distance to everything I needed. Gym is super awesome.

We checked in on Friday for the weekend, to celebrate my birthday. We had stayed at the BAC once before, in December. As soon as we walked up to the desk, Angela recognized us and we talked happily about our previous stay (we were in town to get married). My wife mentioned that we were in town this time for...

We are absolutely smitten with this hotel, staff on reception of the building so helpful and accomadating. Breakfast is just about right ...with helpful staff. Loved sitting and watching the sun set every evening and then going out. Perfectly placed for blue line and eateries. The shore line is a short distance and if you an to shop you may... More

I have stayed here several times before. It is really a hidden gem in the city. They are doing quiet a bit of construction, so half of the hotel is basically closed right now. The rooms were nice to start with, so surprised they are updating them. As a result of the construction, the small lounge with computer is currently... More

I loved staying at this hotel with my husband while we were visiting Chicago for a U2 concert. It's in a great location, with the LaSalle St Blue Line station in a short walking distance, so we were able to use the Blue Line to commute from and to O'Hare and the United Center. It's also within 20 minutes walking... 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.
