Map & Directions

The most economical option from both Chicago O'Hare and Midway airports is the El train. Travel time to the downtown area is 40-45 minutes from O'Hare and 20-25 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).

Hop on a riverboat for an architecture tour along the Chicago River or stroll over to Millennium Park and take a picture by Cloud Gate, also known as the "Bean."

Discover unique surprises in the Chamber design guest rooms that combine the hallway, closet and bathroom into one luxurious Dressing Room area, while privacy doors close to create a personal Sleeping Lounge, both with their own peephole. All guest rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, minibars stocked at street prices and a patented Lounge Bed with ergonomic headboards and erectable foot boards for ultimate comfort. 

Sip tasty libations at The Commons Club, a laid-back bar/lounge hybrid with the vibe of a private members club, or rendezvous for some crafty cocktails at Cerise and take in panoramic views of Chicago's historic Loop district from the outdoor terrace. After a night of fun, indulge in some late-night comfort food at Miss Ricky's, a modern American diner experience open until midnight Sundays-Thursdays and 2 a.m. on weekends.
