Chicago Hotels

Two of our favorite options are located in up-and-coming neighborhoods, and both are within walking distance of city attractions you won’t be able to forget:

  • Ace Hotel Chicago: Chicago’s increasingly trendy West Loop is home to the luxurious-yet-bohemian Ace Hotel. During your stay, you’ll encounter work from local artists, stylish, futuristic furniture, as well as amenities one may not expect, including an acoustic guitar, a turntable, and rooftop terrace.
  • Fieldhouse Jones Chicago: Those searching for a more affordable Chicago stay will be able to find plenty to get excited about at Fieldhouse Jones, frontrunner of the next-generation of communitarian hotels. It’s located between Chicago’s Gold Coast, Old Town, and River North neighborhoods, you’ll get a historic building with the convenience of the Magnificent Mile at your doorstep.

Chicagoland Hotels

A hotel stay in the heart of Chicago makes for an unforgettable experience, but it may not be the best option if you’re looking for a Chicago hotel for visiting relatives — or just a night away. Here are our top picks for Chicagoland hotels outside of the big city:

  • Pheasant Run Resort, West Chicago: Want to stay near the Saint Charles area in the Western suburbs? You’re sure to fall in love with the Pheasant Run Resort, a 250-acre hybrid that combines a hotel, a golf course, and a spa that leaves nothing to be desired. With a theatre, a comedy club, and five restaurants on site, you won’t even need to leave the grounds to enjoy an incredible vacation.
  • La Quinta Inn & Suites, Bannockburn: When you next visit Chicago’s North suburbs, consider the La Quinta Inn & Suites nestled between Bannockburn and Deerfield. In addition to their signature Free Bright Side Breakfast, La Quinta offers an indoor swimming pool, business meeting areas, and large rooms with the latest luxuries.
  • Home2 Suites by Hilton, Joliet: Home2’s, fun, fresh looks and great location are complemented by its exceptional amenities, which include a 24-hour mini-mart, free breakfast, an on-site spin center, and a 42-inch television with HBO in every room.
