Why We Love This Hotel

  • 4-Star hotel in iconic tower on Michigan Avenue directly upscale shopping center
  • 2016 Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Award Winner
  • On-site restaurant received a Michelin Bib Gourmand award in 2014
  • Family-friendly: Kid-sized robes in rooms, visits from the candy man and cookie-baking classes in the kitchen


Sharing the iconic Water Tower Place with some of the most exclusive restaurants and shops in the city, the Ritz Carlton Chicago has perched like a marble and glass crown above the Magnificent Mile for over half a century. In 2015, extensive renovations began on the property’s public spaces and guest rooms and parts are still being refashioned.

With wide views of the lake or city skyline, large windows allow lots of natural light into all guest rooms highlighting the blue and pewter topaz palettes and marble bathrooms. Thoughtful extras like terry robes, slippers, twICE-daily maid service and plush bedding make even the most basic rooms feel luxurious. Suites feature additional niceties like walk-in closets, baby grand pianos, dining and living room areas, two-story apartment-style layouts with spiral staircases and panoramic views from the hotel’s top floor. Those staying in Club Level rooms have exclusive access to an elegant breakfast, all-day refreshments and a concierge in the property’s new 2,600-square-foot lounge. Children are treated to kid-sized robes, tear-free toiletries and visits from the candy man, touring the hallways with a cart teeming with sweets.

Guests have access to the hotel’s new fitness center with cardio machines looking out at Lake Michigan from behind floor-to-ceiling windows. Yoga, Zumba, Pilates and more exercise classes are offered for $20 per guest. The property’s pool will be closed for renovations Nov. 25 – Feb. 8. The updated spa features a long menu of treatments including anti-aging facials and neck massages to relieve tension.

On the hotel’s twelfth floor, deca RESTAURANT + BAR and its adjacent Art Deco cocktail lounge serve updated brasserie cuisine like filet mignon and lobster, earning a Michelin Bib Gourmand award in 2014. In summertime, the rooftop bar is packed with hotel guests and Chicago’s social elite. On humid days, the alfresco bar offers sundaes at an ice cream cart.
