Towering over the Magnificent Mile in the Near North neighborhood, the Allerton is a well-priced, central option for an urban getaway. Its location on Chicago’s main shopping avenue puts it within a five-minute walk of top attractions, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the John Hancock Observatory. A 15-minute stroll will bring you across the Chicago River to Millennium Park and Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate sculpture (aka "The Bean").
Built in the 1920s, the hotel’s traditional interiors have recently been given a boutique makeover. Art deco influences are still apparent in the velvet armchairs and shiny side tables, and the color scheme is bright. Hang out in the cozy lobby and check your emails over a free coffee, which is available 7-11 a.m.
The restaurant serves breakfast until 11 a.m., followed by a lunch of classic food, such as Cobb salads and Reuben sandwiches. Drop by the lounge in the evening for signature martinis and small bites before hitting the restaurants in neighboring Streeterville. Although there’s no pool, the hotel does have a small 24-hour gym on site, and it’s four blocks to the river or lake for waterfront runs.
Chic and contemporary, the Standard rooms come with queen beds and can be a little tight on space. Upgrade to a king bed or opt for an executive room -- they have separate living areas and some have views of the Magnificent Mile. The area can occasionally be noisy, so if possible, we'd recommend requesting a higher room to avoid being disturbed by street noise.
