Best Hotels In Chicago

Chicago has whatever type of lodging you may want. From sleek downtown convention hotels and best in class corporate condos to quaint bed and breakfast and boutique hotels, the Chicago area boasts a diverse selection of guest rooms for visitors no matter the budget or style.

Where should I Stay in Chicago?
Chicago is a convention destination, so hotel rates are sensitive to supply and demand. If your travel dates are flexible, then you are more likely to get a better deal.
It is widely accepted that a hotel's room rates may drop $50.00 to $100.00 overnight and raise again the next day. It all depends on the season and what festivals, conferences, and other events are happening around town.
  • The Loop - Mostly Historic Hotels of architectural interest in an area filled with business people on weekdays and shoppers on weekends.
  • West Loop & South Loop - Mixed residential and business class neighborhoods that are gentrifying a real opportunity to mix with the locals.
    You will find a mix of small to mid-size hotels and B&B's
  • River North - Lots of chains, from hotels to restaurants to shops. You will find an abundance of tourists. This area is also loaded with art galleries and antique stores.
  • Lincoln Park - Small boutique hotels tucked away on quiet tree-lined streets with many independent shops and restaurants. Pedestrian - friendly area, you really don't need a car to find the nearest restaurant, bar, or bank. Great transportation system in the area..
  • Lakeview & Far North Side - Very busy around Wrigley Field, you will find locals and tourists alike seeking their favorite music hang-out, bar, outdoor restaurant or food stand especially during the summer months. This area has a lot of mid-size boutiques hotels and B&B's.

Even with this in mind it is wise to shop around for the best hotel for you. Focus on a neighborhood of interest, such as the Magnificent Mile, or the Lincoln Park Zoo, and you'll find budget hotel chains like Embassy Suites and luxury properties like the four Seasons Hotel Chicago within a few blocks of each other.
