Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
A playful, lively feel and a great location are the cornerstones of this downtown Chicago hotel. Graffiti murals splash the walls, album covers decorate the elevators and most rooms overlook a lightwell filled with local sculptures. The ACME loves their tech perks, so download their YIKES app before you arrive so you can open your room door with your phone; once inside you can ask Alexa (via the in-room Amazon Echo) where the best nearby deep dish is.
The hotel's sassy vibe is carried into the modern yet industrial decor: bathroom mirrors are marked with a giant red kiss mark, and many of the walls are stamped with a large painted handprint. Rooms also feature the ability to stream your own content on the smart TV and trendy takes on old-school amenities like chalkboards in lieu of “do not disturb” signs.
Aside from its lively vibe, the hotel’s greatest asset is its location -- two blocks from Michigan Avenue and in the heart of the bustling River North neighborhood. It’s the ideal home base to explore the area’s many restaurants, bars and shops; when it’s time to check out the rest of the city, an L stop is just steps away.
The hotel's cocktail bar, the Berkshire Room, is regularly ranked among the city's best, and the West Town Bakery cranks out top-rated cookies, donuts and cake balls along with grab-and-go sandwiches. The bakery is also in charge of the hotel's neat "knock-and-drop" coffee service -- just let the front desk know when you need your morning fix, and they'll drop off a thermos of java outside your room.
