Why We Love It

  • A hip, high-energy hotel adjacent to Chicago's House of Blues
  • Walking distance to Michigan Ave. and Theater District
  • Rock star-worthy rooms, with snakeskin accents and fully stocked mini bars
  • The Chicago River slithers by out front, and several boat tours depart from right outside the door

Map & Directions

The hotel is 12 miles from Chicago Midway International Airport and 20 miles from O'Hare International Airport. Take the El train’s Orange Line from Midway or Blue Line from O'Hare to the Clark/Lake stop; the hotel is three blocks from the station. The trip will take 30 minutes to an hour, respectively. Valet parking is available for guests arriving by car (extra charge applies).

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Stepping into the bright, white lobby at the Hotel Chicago Downtown feels more like checking in for a stay on Miami Beach than the Chicago River. Popular with musicians playing in the area, the hotel is adjacent to the famed House of Blues.

It's also within walking distance of upscale shopping on Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park and the Theater District; it's also an ideal starting point for boat tours in the daytime and River North bar-hopping at night. 

The rooms were designed to house rock stars with snakeskin wingbacks, floor-to-ceiling windows, overstuffed beds and fully stocked mini bars. Rooms do not have coffeemakers, but complimentary coffee is served in the lobby. Request an upper floor room facing Dearborn or State streets for spectacular city views.

Other Comments: I am totally disappointed in TravelZoo. I had a family emergency come up and I tried to change the date of my reservation. I called the hotel and they told me to call TravelZoo. I called TravelZoo and they told me to call the hotel. I spent so much time on the phone going back and forth trying to get my date changed that I ended up cancelling my reservation and losing my money. I will never purchase another hotel through TravelZoo if it is this much of a hussle. I am very aggravated as this turned out to be a stressful situation.
