The hotel is hidden in a financial building with limited quantity of rooms. The location of the hotel is quite convenient. The most amazing thing of the stay is to enjoy the breath-taking view from the window of our room on 40th floor. We even took the deep dish pizza back to the room in order not to miss the... More

I have nothing but good things to say about our stay! Everything was great, amazing view, free breakfast, clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Got a great deal on booking.com. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit. Parking was tricky, but it's Chicago, it's tricky to park anywhere. We left our car in the underground garage, and... More

Booked 3+months prior based on positive comments about the spectacular views...thought I'd spend a bit more here since we were celebrating a special occasion. Is there a "bad" view in this place? Well, yes, you actually can be disappointed. The south views aren't great. The customer service isn't great. At checkin, desk clerk advised me to remember my room number... More

I must admit the hotel is bit confusing, primarily because it only exists on one floor of a much larger building. The benefit to travelers is that the hotel occupies the 40th floor, which provides some stunning view of the financial district of Chicago. There is something memorizing about sitting in a chair by the window and gazing out at... More

I am not sure how this property is getting such good reviews. Its not bad, but it isnt that great either. The hotel is in a commercial building. Doesnt look like a hotel. This is just another 3 star hotel with a 5 star price.

The room was awesome! Very clean, we were on the 40th floor, so the night lights and view was amazing. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. That being said, it was difficult to find the place. We circled the block about 4 times before finding how to navigate the one way streets, and finding a public place to... More

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

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.
