Travelers' Choice
ACME Hotel, is Chicago’s original approachable boutique hotel. Located smack dab center, and close to all things Chicago, ACME is the perfect spot for comings and goings, whether for business or play. If you have an eye for design, and dig art, music, and a creative vibe, check us out! ACME is all about making sure your stay reflects YOU, and we want you to have an experience you won’t soon forget. We’ve got The Berkshire Room just off our lobby, one of Chicago’s top-notch cocktail lounges where you’ll find actual locals! Not to mention Bunny Slope Bar, Chicago’s only hot tub bar (not a typo), and WestTown Bakery for sweets and savories. We also offer FREE piping hot Morning Joe® delivery every morning . . . and Free, ridiculously fast WIFI throughout. (None of that, “free in the lobby only” stuff). Also, all rooms boast a state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins Hi Fi so you can stream your own jam. Each room comes with its own Amazon Alexa too - so let her do some of the heavy lifting. ACME is what we consider approachable - in more ways than one. The fact is, we want your experience at our downtown Chicago hotel to blow your mind, not your budget.

This hotel never ceases to provide extraordinary experience every time I visit. During and after covid a great deal of the hotels in the Chicago area seemed to diminish in service and guest care, but Acme has continued to provide stellar service, great room and cool amenities. I travel to the Chicagoland area often and am always excited when I get to stay at this hotel. The coffee shop and bar are great add-ons that solidify a seamless stay. Both the evening and morning staff are excellent and teh location is great. You're in the heart of the action but also tucked away. Do yourself a favor when you book and spend the extra money for one of the suites. Extremely luxurious, yet stylish and it's a great spot to gather and hang out if you're traveling as a group or meeting up with people in the city. I love this hotel. It's my favorite in the city.

Super cute hotel! Our room was clean, bed comfortable, and the shower was especially nice! The water got hot immediately and it had good water pressure. The location seemed great for walking around, there was tons of other places nearby to check out. You gotta check out the Berkshire lounge while you're there. Also, they offer a nice discount for public parking, so be sure to ask about that if you need it

Amazing customer service from Michelle at the front desk! Very comfortable room, spacious and a nice bed. Woke up completely refreshed after a night's stay. Location is great, and the hotel itself has a cool vibe. Cannot think of any reason I wouldn't stay here in Chicago the next time.

Smaller hotel, definitely a boutique feel. Lots of attention to details to utilize the space and keep it fun. Beds were soft and I liked the addition of a black out curtain for the bedroom section to help keep it dark.

Perfect location in the Chicago Loop. Very walkable to everything and Michigan Avenue. Loved our room which was a suite. Staff was very attentive and around the corner to the new Bally Casino. Highly recommend going to Eataly for coffee in the mornings.

Sydney, Australia126 contributions76 helpful votes
I haven’t stayed here in about 3 years. Still a good hotel and a funky alternative to the usual bland corporate hotel chains, but I felt the overall quality had dropped. Stayed for 2 nights over the weekend. Staff were helpful but they all seemed rather uninterested in being there. Nothing in their interactions that made you feel like a valued guest. Also, many of the various services and perks that the hotel used to provide seemed to have disappeared. The room was clean and functional. All the usual features (…iron, safe, aircon, etc) were there and worked fine. The shower was hot and strong, and the bed was more than comfortable. The rooms here are on the smaller size, and things like the wardrobe are minimalistic…but this is the style/vibe of the hotel and building, so not an issue, but if you haven’t stayed here before, you may not be expecting it. The location is GOLD! Arguably the best location in Chicago to enjoy the best of this amazing city…day or night. An added bonus is the bar in the lobby which is worth a visit even if you aren’t staying in the hotel. The best upside is that you get this great location at a reasonable price. I would recommend ACME to anyone wanting something a little different, but it would be great to see a return to their early form before I stay there again.
