Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Set in suburban Chicago, a 35-minute drive from downtown, the AAA 4-Diamond Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel is an economical, yet upscale option in comparison to the high-end hotels of downtown. On average, visitors can shave 30-40% off hotel bills by staying a bit outside the city center -- and the parking is free.
It's also convenient to Northwestern University and the Chicago Botanic Garden, both within a 20-minute drive away.
Guest rooms are spacious enough that even standard rooms accommodate up to four guests with room left over for a cozy reading nook, work desk and mini fridge. Corner rooms offer additional space and connecting rooms are available. Families and groups can spread out in one-bedroom suites with king-size beds separated from living and dining rooms. All accommodations are decorated in rich reds and golds, and include flat screen televisions, coffee makers and Aveda bath products. Wi-Fi can be purchased for $9.95 per day, enhanced high speed is $4 more.
Pets are welcomed to stay as well for an additional fee. Visitors can upgrade to the Club Level for access to the private lounge which offers free breakfast, hors d’oeuvres and dessert. All guests have access to the fitness center and indoor pool.
The hotel has two fine dining restaurants. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, Pancetta Regional Kitchen & Bar serves Italian cuisine and is geared more towards families. For a bit more atmosphere, the on-site Ruth’s Chris has a fireplace-lit dining room. Afterwards the hotel's RLounge serves cocktails paired live entertainment from local artists.
