It doesn’t get more Chicago than this 1893 icon of old-world design and good cheer. Originally home to an elite men’s club, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel building is an architectural gem dating back to 1893. Converted to a boutique hotel and urban playground of the same name in 2015, the property sports 240 guest rooms, seven bars & restaurants, the city's first Topgolf Swing Suite, and a downtown location central to Millennium Park, Lake Michigan, The Loop, and more. The Chicago Athletic Association hotel offers an artfully-restored historic stay along with some of the city’s most-lauded dining and drinking outlets.

Miami, Florida1 contribution
I visited Chicago for the first time with my family. We loved the feel of the Hotel.It gave us the old school Chicago vibe, however was also very updated and kept. The Hotel was right in the middle of all the things we wanted to see in the city. So the location could not be better. The staff was a great, very friendly & professional. One of the employees named Dave was incredible. He went above and beyond to make our trip successful and for us to feel comfortable not only in the hotel, but in giving us advise and helping us with directions on where to get to in certain areas of the city.

We have stayed at The Drake, The Pfister, The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, The Congress and The Palmer and this by far was the best experience! We especially loved the customer service. Each worker LOVES their job and you can tell. A small conversation will leave you with so much knowledge!

If you're looking for a unique, pampered experience with an old world feel, Chicago Athletic Association is THE place to do so when visiting Chicago! If you're not able to stay on property, be sure to add it to your list to at least have drink and play a game in the Game Room or check out the view of Millennium Park from Cindy's rooftop.

We have stayed here for three years now, during Thanksgiving. The hotel is lovely and the staff is wonderful. The game room add an extra fun to the overall experience. Our family of five all enjoy what the hotel has to offer.

The location is amazing. Unfortunately the room was unclean. There were cobwebs on the lighting, dust everywhere and the bathrobe was dirty with make-up. The extractor fan in the bathroom also did not work and never repaired. The next morning the room was not cleaned. We complained and were told that cleaning was by request only. Unfortunately we had to request cleaning three times before the room was cleaned. We complained to the GM but never received a reply. The room layout was also very odd with limited space for clothing. Again, great location but very disappointing service.
