Top tips for finding the perfect Chicago hotel

To be near Chicago’s best upscale shopping, stay near Magnificent Mile, a strip of Michigan Avenue that runs through the commercial heart of the city.
From mid-range hotels like the Warwick Allerton - Chicago to the upscale Sofitel Chicago, guests can find a range of hotel options in the Magnificent Mile area.
The Loop is Chicago’s business district. Home to both The Art Institute of Chicago as well as Grant Park, it boasts a variety of hotels for all budgets.
One of The Loop’s best business hotels is The Silversmith Hotel, which features four meeting rooms and a conference space. Kimpton the Gray is another exceptional option in this region.
For places to stay by Chicago Midway Airport, Skylark Motel is a decent option for those travelling on a budget. For mid-range accommodation, Holiday Inn Chicago Midway Airport and Hyatt Place Chicago Midway Airport are both good choices.
Chicago’s metro system, known as the L, connects Chicago O’Hare International Airport to the city centre via the Blue Line, reaching the city in just under an hour. Those seeking a convenient transfer to the airport should look for hotels along this line.
For a picturesque stay on Michigan Avenue consider Congress Plaza Hotel or Chicago’s Essex Inn. Both hotels offer views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park.
Families may enjoy staying at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, just a short walk from the amusement park rides and restaurants of Navy Pier, the Children’s Museum, and Ohio Street Beach.
