Staying in Chicago
Digging the vibe Downtown
As a focal point of the Midwest perched on the southern point of the great Lake Michigan, Chicago is a cultural mecca that doesn't skimp on authentic American warmth. Chicago's ceaseless heart is made up of a few districts including Near North, Near South and The Loop.
Theatres, skyscrapers and eye-catching architecture define The Loop, where you will find a slew of stays including the Hard Rock Hotel, Fairmont and Hyatt Regency overlooking the Chicago River. Expect to pay a little more in Near North, where luxury lodgings include the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons and Trump International Hotel.
Oodles of O'Hare Airport hotels
Birthplace of "the blues", deep-dish pizza and college romping ground of a mildly prominent politician by the name of Barack Obama, Chicago has a great many claims to fame, including hosting the second busiest airport in the States.
Weary travellers rejoice! There is plenty of Chicago accommodation close to O'Hare Airport, but they're known to book up quick to get in early to secure your suite. Located on the Far Northwest side of town, airport adjacent hotels include offerings from the reputable Hilton, Four Points by Sheraton, InterContinental, Hyatt Regency, Holiday Inn, Best Western and Marriott.
Chicago's charms extend to Lakeview
While there are countless places to rest your head amid the hubbub of the CBD, venturing beyond the tourist-focussed sights can add something memorable to your holiday. Beyond the magnetism of Near North and Old Town, Lakeview is a vibrant pocket skirted by suburban Chicago gems just waiting to be discovered.
By staying at the likes of the Best Western, City Suites, Willows Hotel or the enchanting Old Chicago Inn, you will be within reach of the iconic Wrigley Stadium, the salacious nightlife offerings of Boystown, handfuls of major music and arts venues and an eclectic array of classic Chicago architecture.
