Staying at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel puts guests within walking distance of top attractions, restaurants and shopping within The Loop. Overlooking the Chicago River, the hotel is a five-minute walk from House of Blues, 10 minutes from the Magnificent Mile and 15 minutes from Millennium Park.

Guest rooms and suites look out at the river or skyline and corner suites have views of both the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. Accommodations are outfitted with one king bed or two queens, flat-screen televisions and coffeemakers; Wi-Fi is available for a surcharge. Club Level rooms offer access to a private lounge for free breakfast and afternoon appetizers with non-alcoholic drinks.

For a casual dinner or cocktails, guests can head to the rooftop where an indoor/outdoor bar is open year-round, thanks to heat laps and the private VIP greenhouse. American cuisine is served for breakfast and lunch, and paired with panoramic city views at Great Street while the on-site market makes it easy to satisfy cravings on-the-go. The property also features an indoor pool, spa and fitness center.
