Explore. Experience. Engage.


Most of Chicago's attractions are clustered on or around the Magnificent Mile, and that's where you'll find all the big chain hotels as well. Hyatt, Marriott, Westin, Sheraton and others cater mostly to business travelers and conventioneers, offering comfortable accommodations and the usual amenities. There are also a few less cookie-cutter properties within walking distance of the Mile. Prices in Chicago are not as high as in some other major cities, so even in the summer, rooms at downtown properties are available for under $200 per night.
