This is a beautiful hotel and the location is awesome! The concierge and staff were very helpful and nice. The room we had was a King standard. The bed was the most comfortable ever and we loved the design of the bathroom. It is a very happening place and there are always people in the lobby. We will most def... More

My friends and I loved the room, the atmosphere, the service, and the amenities! We also loved the location... We walked everywhere and loved staying so close to the water, the bean, the art institute, and Maggie Daley Park!

We booked the Play Two Suite for the night of my sister's bachelorette party and we were so happy. The hotel was extremely accommodating, the rooms were beautiful, the lounge for the pre-party was prefect, and the beds were SO comfortable. Plus, visitors staying in the hotel can go up to Cindy's without having to wait. I especially have to... More

The staff was outstanding and extremely polite and friendly. The view from the roof top bar was great and all of the bars had outstanding service. Our room was very clean and I rather enjoyed the men's products that were provided by the hotel. We were allowed to check in early and it was all smiles from that point on.... More

CAA Hotel was absolutely wonderful. Every careful detail has been thought out in this beautiful vintage inspired hotel. The decor was very cool, very thoughtful, and very original. The service and staff were gracious and kind. We didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the game room, as it was being occupied by a wedding party, but we did utilize almost... More

The hotel was fantastic, very close to everything - including just a couple blocks to the blue line to O'hare. The lobby room was a fantastic place to hang out and there were great period details everywhere. Very nicely done.

Loved the hotel ambiance and service. Great location to everything in Chicago. We felt like we did not want to venture outside as the hotel had amazing food and fun hangout spots in the building from the rooftop bar to the game room.

My sister and I spent an overnight in the city to celebrate our birthdays. She and her husband had been to this hotel's fabulous terrace bar overlooking Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. When I suggested staying here, she was excited. The restoration of this historically "men only" association building is impressive. They kept much of the historical aspects. The old... More

The location on Michigan Ave across from Millenium Park and the Art Institute and close to parking made our stay easy. Although we came to Chicago to see the city, it was exciting just to be in this hotel. The restaurants, rooftop bar, and game room were lots of fun. The lobby was the epitome of old Chicago class.

Hi Roane_Logan, Thanks so much for this detailed review! I'm thrilled that you (and the pup) had a great time with us. With so many great restaurants on property, it's easy to have a good time staying in, but our central location also makes sight-seeing very accessible! We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel. Cheers, Madeline Vick... 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inside these warmly elegant quarters you will find a design aesthetic inspired by the athletic heritage of the building-yet with thoroughly contemporary amenities throughout. A sense of play is alive here, as well, in divining which artifacts are vintage and which are new-something to ponder as the crystal glasses and cocktail carafe beckon a good, icy stir. Victorian-inspired lighting, brass fixtures and ironwork recall Chicago's industrial heritage, while wooden gym ladders, smartly reimagined as a storage wall, are as likely to hold a flask as a vintage self-improvement manual. ... more   less
