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.

Although the rooms were small, there was a lot of charm at the Ambassador Chicago. The staff was incredibly helpful when we asked about dining recommendations as well. Visit the restaurant on site for a great cocktail, and then make sure you head down stairs...More
I am in love. First of all, the location- for someone who used to live 2 blocks away I’m partial to the Gold Coast - walking distance to the loop (if you’re the type who likes to walk), close to the red line, w/in blocks...More
