The Hotel Monaco

This boutique hotel is sure to appeal to those guests who are after something a bit different. From the leopard print bath robes to complimentary yoga mats in every room, the Hotel Monaco fits right at home in downtown Chicago. If you’re searching for something to do in the evenings, why not attend the hotel’s daily Wine Hour, where you’ll learn about (and sample) different wines from around the world. Did we mention that complimentary goldfish are available upon request too? Yep, you heard that right.

Chicago Athletic Association Hotel

This 1893 building was originally home to the CAA and has now been lovingly restored into a grand hotel. Wherever you look there are nods to the past, from the stunning panelled walls in the elevator to the lively speakeasy bar downstairs. Whether you fancy a game of foosball in the games room or have a craving for a good steak, the CAA Hotel will see you right.

Four Seasons Chicago

The Four Seasons brand is synonymous with decadence, and its Chicago branch is no exception. Sprawling guest rooms and luxurious amenities are the name of the game here, appealing to those guests who value the finer things in life. Situated steps away from North Michigan Avenue’s fabulous shops, the Four Seasons Chicago is perfectly situated for Windy City newcomers and repeat offenders alike. The hotel is also home to an astonishing art collection, with Andy Warhol and Matisse pieces just the tip of the iceberg.

    I didn’t have the pleasure to stay in all of them, but I’ve seen the Four Seasons and it’s amazing. The others are good, but I really like this one!
