Whether you're in town for business or leisure, this elegant retreat proves that you don't have to stay along the Magnificent Mile to make the most of your trip to Chi-town. Situated in the blossoming West Loop area, it's just around the corner from Greektown, the United Center, University of Illinois Chicago Campus and Oprah's Harpo Studios; a quick cab ride from everything else in the city; and just a hop off of I-90/94.
But the indoors shouldn't be forgotten in the face of the great outdoors. All 398 guest rooms (including 42 suites) are equipped with complimentary high-speed internet access (free wireless available in public spaces), a flat-screen high-definition TV, a cordless phone and a CD clock radio...the list goes on. Every room has a private balcony and a sound-blocking double-glass door to keep out the sounds of the city. For the restless, there's a complimentary soothing sleep CD, eye mask and lavender spray, all of which you're encouraged to take home (or on your next adventure) with you.
Take advantage of the on-site fitness center, business center, banquet facilities and, last but not least, Dine, a 1940s-inspired restaurant and martini bar.
