AC Hotel Chicago Downtown

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Literally a two-minute walk from the Magnificent Mile 
  • Rooms are somewhat small, but comfortable and clean, and come with free Wi-Fi
  • On-site dining includes a reasonably priced breakfast buffet, and a nice lounge which serves tapas and specialty cocktails
  • A pool and fitness center and fairly basic but are open 24-hours a day to guests 

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.

Overview

The AC Hotel Chicago Downtown offers guests basic but 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 on the smaller side, but they're comfortable and clean and come equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, ideal for planning days exploring the Second City. On-site dining includes a reasonably priced breakfast buffet and a casual lounge where tapas and specialty cocktails are served, though guests will find themselves with more than enough dining options just outside the door. 

A pool and fitness center are nothing to write home about but they're open 24-hours a day. This hotel attracts anyone looking for a good deal and a great location in a wonderful city.
