The Silversmith is a beautiful, clean, well-managed hotel in a great location. The housekeeping staff does a fantastic job; this was one the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in. The rooms are surprisingly spacious and the staff is helpful and friendly. This will be my go-to hotel from now on in Chicago. The only downside/quasi-shady aspect is the "complimentary wifi"...

What a change from several years ago when the entire place was run down, dark and dated. It has been remodeled and done so extremely well. While they could not physically bring in more sunlight they managed to brighten the place with white and silver furnishings and color theme throughout. In the former dark lobby there is now a circular... More

We took the train in from the airport and only had to walk about four blocks to this lovely boutique hotel on Wabash Avenue. Reception was very hospitable and made every effort to accommodate us. We were able to get into two of our five rooms early which was helpful for leaving luggage. Our room had a good size living... More

This hotel was in an easy access location to the loop and Michigan Avenue and a short cab ride to McCormick Place. When I first visited the room, I was greatly impressed by the size and how modern, hip and cool it was. There was a separate seating area from the sleeping area -- each with their own tv. The...

We came in to town for one night to see a show. I am in marathon training so I wanted to be close to the lakefront trail. Based on the reviews here we picked this hotel. We were not at all disappointed. Access to the trail is just around the corner. We walked to dinner (GT Fish & Oyster) and... More

This is a beautiful hotel right in the heart of the loop. Exceptional staff, very quick to resolve any issues you may have. Bar tender even gave us a couple of bottles of water while we waited to check in. The central location is great, near the museums, parks and many restaurants and stores. We did not utilize the restaurant... More

I rarely (if ever) write reviews, but this hotel deserved a positive one. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations and friendly staff, even when we asked to change rooms at the last minute due to a plan change on our end. The furnishings were excellent, comfy beds, and plenty of room esp. for a downtown hotel. Luxurious bathroom, and... More

Really nice boutique-style hotel in the Loop. Great location for exploring the city, rooms are nice - comfortable and quiet with charm! Front desk staff are really nice and helpful. And there is a target directly behind the hotel on the west side of the block - perfect!

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.
