A tower designed like a champagne bottle seems like a fine home for a hotel with a reputation for drawing rock stars and partygoers. The Hard Rock Hotel Chicago occupies the historic Carbide and Carbon Building, its art-deco exterior clad in deep green terracotta while the gold trim on top evokes the foil on top of a bottle of bubbly.

The hotel showcases gems from its collection of musical memorabilia, from John Lennon's leather trench coat to Prince's sinuous white guitar. The lobby and rooms have rock star touches like alligator skin walls, a giant gramophone, and wall-size photos of top stars. The hotel lends guests Fender guitars for free, for an in-room jam session (piped through headphones, don't worry, not through floor-rattling amplifiers). 

The building sits right on Michigan Avenue. Only two blocks north, the avenue crosses a historic bridge over the Chicago River before reaching the Tribune Tower and the main stretch of Magnificent Mile shopping. Two blocks south of the hotel rises the swirling silver panels of Frank Gehry's band shell, anchoring Millennium Park's lawns, gardens and art installations.

Fuel up at Chuck's restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and features an Iron Chef-winning hamburger. The hotel recently replaced the Angels and Kings bar with Mr. Brown's Lounge, a Jamaican-themed restaurant serving jerk chicken and fried plantains to the tune of reggae jams. 

Make the most of your time in Chicago during your stay with these great restaurant, spa and activity offers.

Getting there

O'Hare Airport is about an hour's drive northwest, while Midway Airport is about a half hour's drive (assuming traffic is decent, which in Chicago, can be hard to predict). Both airports are served by the El, making trips of about 40 minutes each to the downtown's Loop neighborhood. Valet parking is available at the Hard Rock for $65 per night.
