Map & Directions

The most economical option from both Chicago O’Hare and Midway airports is the CTA train. Travel time into the downtown area is 45 minutes from O’Hare and 25 minutes from Midway. Taxis can be a bit quicker, unless it is rush hour, when a ride from O’Hare could take up to 90 minutes.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The AC Hotel Chicago Downtown offers guests comfortable rooms in an absolutely prime location just a block from Michigan Avenue in Chicago's River North district, filled with landmark skyscrapers and the city's liveliest retail corridor.

Rooms are fairly spacious at 300-350 square feet and come outfitted with plush bedding, flat-panel TVs, coffee makers, minifridges (for the leftovers you'll be bringing back from one of the many nearby restaurants) and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property. Some upgraded room types feature balconies, and there are also nice touches like complimentary bottled water and wall outlets with USB chargers. 

Families will love having access to the skylit indoor pool along with the 24-hour fitness center. The hotel's daily breakfast buffet is reasonably priced at $15 per person, while the views overlooking Rush Street from the hotel's AC Lounge are worth checking out (especially during happy hour). 

From the hotel's front door, you're within a quick walk of River North and Mag Mile shopping destinations like Water Tower Place, Nordstrom and the Shops at North Bridge and Saks Fifth Avenue; sights like the Tribune Tower and the Chicago River; and famous restaurants like Eataly, Pizzeria Uno and Lawry's the Prime Rib. Navy Pier is also a quick walk, cab or bus ride east, as is the Ohio Street Beach.

We enjoyed our stay at AC Hotel Chicago. It is a really big hotel that I think was recently renovated. The amenities are nice and the rooms have all you need. The rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. Nothing too exceptional but for the price and location it was perfect!

The hotel did not have a record of our reservation when we arrived Sunday night. After waiting 15 min. they finally gave us a room and then were going to sort it out with Travelzoo. Very annoying. We ended up with a handicapped room with a view. Made some coffee in the room but the cream was curdled. The room was very clean. If you get a room with a view be prepared for a lot of street noise...windows were not very soundproof.
