W Chicago City Center, this beautiful landmark hotel, formerly the Midland Hotel, is located in the Loop's financial district. The exterior of the hotel is a fine example of the Chicago school of architecture, while the newly renovated inside offers a warm environment for both the business traveler and tourist. The hotel has expanded its room count from 257 to 369, yet it retains an intimate atmosphere.
The original Palmer House was built just before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and perished in flames during the conflagration. Shortly afterward, Potter Palmer rebuilt his hotel more opulently than the first. Years later, during the mid-1920s, the Palmer House was once again rebuilt to what it is today. The hotel is right in the heart of the Chicago Loop and offers comfortable rooms at reasonable rates. Even if you are not staying here, the elegant hand-painted ceiling in the lobby is a must-see.
Billed as having Dickensian charm and an Old English ambiance, this hotel with 52 rooms, is located on a charming, residential street in the heart of the Lakeview area.

The bar is a trendy and distinguished night-life scene serving delectable dishes and creative cocktails.

The hotel is only two blocks from the Magnificent Mile. Have a unique breakfast at Konditorei, a Swedish bakery, and do not miss the lobster at The Palm Restaurant. In the heart of downtown Chicago, the Swissotel is about a 15-minute cab ride to the McCormick Place Convention Center.

This historic South Loop mansion was designed and built in 1870 by Otis L. Wheelock for Calvin Wheeler, the former president of the Chicago Board of Trade. The current owners, Scott and Debra Seger, struggled to refurbish the red brick Italianate building, but managed to transform the old building into an 11-room boutique hotel. Guests are treated with extravagances befitting royalty. Beds are filled with goose down, and the meals, prepared by British chef Denise Renalds, are served on bone China. The Segers imported all of the furniture from Europe. They restored every inch of the building's interior, including the Minton-Hollins tiles on the floors of the guest bathrooms. This is, pound for pound, one of the nicest places to stay in all of Chicago, making it a good idea to book reservations well in advance of your visit to the Windy City.
