Why We Love This Hotel

  • Historic Printer's Row building transformed into a modern boutique hotel
  • Rooms have 12-foot ceilings and full-length windows with great views
  • Meli Cafe serves homemade breads, marmalades and organic eggs
  • Features a 24-hour gym and business center


This boutique hotel just one block south of the loop started its life as a print shop and the Old Morton Salt building in the 19th century before the buildings were merged and seven additional stories constructed in 1988. Today, the original brick facade remains intact along Chicago’s well-preserved Printer’s Row and does not prepare visitors for the modern, eye-catching interiors. The dark wood-paneled lobby is welcoming with a palette of cream, red and brown that also appears in the guest rooms.

Accommodations feel open and airy thanks to 12-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows framed by gauzy curtains. All feature flat-screen TVs, environmentally responsible body-care products, rainfall showerheads and free Wi-Fi. For an older property, the rooms are large with sleek glass desks and seating areas. Suites are appointed like pieds-à-terre with king-size mattresses in private bedrooms, oversize soaking tubs and separate living rooms.

The hotel’s valet, bellman and concierge make visitors’ needs a priority from the moment of arrival to the end of their stay. Both the gym and business center are open 24 hours a day to accommodate even the most hectic itineraries.

For homestyle breakfast, the Meli Cafe’s kitchen serves freshly baked challah bread, artisanal coffee from around the globe and seasonal homemade marmalades in addition to a full menu of organic cuisine.
