Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


A stunning high-rise with city views from every guest room, the AAA 4-Diamond Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago rises gracefully above the intersection of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.

From this prime location, guests can easily walk a few blocks north to the Magnificent Mile, or turn south to Millennium Park and the Art Institute. The Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium are a 10-minute taxi ride away.

After a day in the city, Travelzoo members can unwind with the hotel’s seemingly never-ending amenities: pound the pavement on the rooftop’s winding jogging path (complete with unobstructed views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier), dive into the indoor or outdoor pool, shoot pool in the game room, peruse a small art gallery, catch a movie in the screening room, or cozy up before a fire pit on the terrace. All guests can take advantage of free Wi-Fi throughout the property.

End your evening with a steam in the fitness center or dinner at the on-site Italian restaurant, Filini.

Enjoyed Most: Loved the bathroom!
Other Comments: Perfect location! Walking distance to the Art Institute and Mileninum Park. Parking in Chicago is pricy, used Spot Hero app for much better rates.
