This swanky icon spells luxury all the way, from its distinguished art collection to the award-winning spa and fitness center. High-tech bedside control panels in rooms, afternoon tea in the lobby, and grand fireplaces in the bar are just some of the hotel’s perks. Should you find the time to leave this lovely spot (we're not judging you if you don't) you'll find you're a small walk away from the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Water Tower Place. All of the good stuff.
Mood? City-centre opulence.
Location perks? Part of the centrally-located prime real estate along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.
Budget range? One to splash the cash on.
Time Out tip: Hit up the decadent chocolate bar on Friday and Saturday evenings.
