Neighbourhood
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.

Older hotel in safe residential area near the lake. Valet parking was $67, way too much for this hotel. Staff members were very friendly. The lobby and hotel are beautiful, but the style and elegance of the main floor doesn’t match the rooms. Our room...More
