Chicago was once known for being Opera’s town, but since the end of her show, its popularity declined. Almost a decade later and Clubs have finally won the World Series, and it’s almost Obama’s hometown. With all this combined, Chicago is red hot right now. Last year, the city was flooded with 54 million tourists (obviously not all at the same time), which is a record high. To keep up with the demand of a blossoming tourist industry new luxury hotels have opened up. Also, many established hotels underwent massive renovations to stay competitive.
This luxury iconic hotel exudes extravagance, from its distinguished art collection to the award-winning fitness center and spa. The hotel rooms also boast high tech bedside control panels in rooms. Guests can have indulgent afternoon high tea in the lobby while sitting near grand fireplaces in the bar.
The hotel has stunning views of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. For all the foodies out there it has great five star restaurants and a massive ballroom. What makes it stand out even further is that it has 316 massive rooms and suites. Langham is considered to be one of the best hotels in the United States. The cherry on the top is that the hotel has been designed by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe.
If you want to see and be seen, then there is no better place than Soho House, Chicago. You don’t have to be a member to stay here, and during check-in, you’ll have the privilege to access private spaces like the gym, fifth-floor exclusive club and the rooftop restaurant and pool. There are canopy beds in most of the rooms which have fluffy white linens, big industrial windows, and stocked minibars. With the hotel offers so much you won’t feel the need to leave the building.
Tucked away in the West Loops booming Fulton Market District, opposite the Google building and literally steps away from the Green Line is Chicago’s Ace Hotel. Locals and tourists have loved the food filled launching pad it has provided for the city. The hotel has embraced the minimalist trend and has furnished all its room in minimalist modern décor with retro accents. Their rooms have curated record collections for the private listening. The in-house restaurant called City Mouse offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner from renowned chefs. If you’re a millennial who loves to follow trends, then Ace Hotel will be an ideal fit.
This hotel is a unique blend of boutique and luxury which makes it stand out from the rest. It is situated just off Michigan Avenue in the city’s River North. Space has artwork and fittings by highly acclaimed artists from around the world. The hotel also features a 24 hours fitness center, a luxury spa, on-site steakhouse and a craft cocktail lounge. This is a great option if you want the luxury at a slightly lower cost.
