The sprawling metropolis that locals call the “Windy City” is the epicentre of the Midwest and a powerful icon of American economic might. Giddying high rises are the hallmark of the cityscape, and from your Chicago hotel you can step out to stylish restaurants and bars, peerless theatres, and world-famous sporting arenas.
Start your visit by surveying the magnificent urban sweep from the vertiginous heights of Skydeck Chicago at the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). Then roll north past the department stores on the Magnificent Mile to Lincoln Park, dotted with historic mansions, acclaimed restaurants and upscale boutiques, and home to the famous Chicago Zoo.
Culture lovers should choose a hotel along the Chicago lakeshore, setting for a host of first-class museums and galleries. The lake forms a natural pleasure park for Chicago residents, along with the Chicago River, which flows southwards, dotted with islands, nature parks and lagoons.
Many guests of our Chicago hotels are drawn here by the city’s rich theatre tradition, immortalised in Annie Get Your Gun and the eponymous musical, Chicago. Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox games always draw crowds, while the Michelin-starred restaurants are as sophisticated as the designer suits seen proudly on display in the business district.
