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.

This is such an amazing hotel with a wonderful boutique feel. This was my second stay, and I honestly am unlikely to consider any other option when coming to Chicago. From front desk to housekeeping, service is terrific. Rooms here are such a relief from the cookie cutter

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Stayed in January 2019. Loved the location even though my room had a lovely view of the cavernous inner courtyard. Staff very professional and very friendly. My room was laid out strangely,but that was as expected, given the age and the provenance of the hotel. I would stay

Really disappointing that the HBO channel shows as HBO, shows as Game of Thrones on the channel guide, yet is showing Showtime. I specifically searched the hotel to make sure it had HBO before booking knowing I would be here for the premiere of Game of Thrones, been looking

Thank you for your review, Courtney. I completely understand your frustrations and we are extremely sorry that this service was not working properly during your stay. The hotel is dealing with a technical difficulty for the HBO network and we are working on remedying the situation. I will connect with you in a direct message to learn more about your experience.

We actually received early check-in with no fee but I sense that was based partially on availability. We stayed in what might be considered “off-season.”

is there a bar in the hotel, and is the ballroom open for me to have a look around during my stay.
They have a bar in the lobby and I believe there is one in the restaurant. I actually didn’t check out the ballroom but the employees are all very friendly and would probably make sure you saw it if you wanted to! Hope my answers help. Have a great trip & stay!!
