Retro glam digs in the Loop with hearty Italian fare, wine happy hours and a theatrical location
It starts with a grand entrance as you sweep down the red carpet of a three-story golden staircase. A towering fireplace warms the lobby, while such glam furnishings as curved velvet settees, circular leather lounges and rich gold curtains add drama. The Allegro, a Kimpton hotel, is a vibrant example of boutique-style hospitality that playfully tips its hat to Hollywood glamour.
Bed & Bath
Inspired by the golden age of luxury ocean liners, the guestrooms are compact yet indulgent, with black upholstered headboards, geometric silver wallpaper and red pillows. Tech perks include flat-screen LCD TVs, iHome docking stations and laptop safes. Bathrooms are on the small side but have plush animal print robes, Altier Blum bath amenities and tub-shower combos.
You can throw on a suit or a cocktail dress and in two minutes be settled in a prime seat at the 2,500-seat Cadillac Palace Theater, housed in the same building as the hotel. Afterward meander over for some top late night dining at 312 Chicago, which excels at Italian bar bites and family-style pastas. Then cap of the evening with a tipple at Bar Allegro. Work it off at the 24/7 fitness center.
In the Area
Home to Second City, the Shubert Theatre and the 1921 French Baroque–style Chicago Theatre, Chi-Town has long been a haven for the performing arts. Take your pick of comedy, live theater and jazz, much of it in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Head to Millennium Park for a close-up shot against the Cloud Gate, also known as "the Bean," a 110-ton, highly polished stainless steel sculpture that reflects the skyline. And when cold weather hits, sip hot cocoa and skate on the park's ice rink, open from mid-November to mid-March. Head to the Museum of Contemporary Art for more cutting-edge artworks, from video installations to massive walk-through sculptures, all created after 1945. Just a 10-minute walk from the hotel is Grace, one of Chicago’s buzziest new restaurants. Seventeen chefs prepare the mega-luxe tasting menus, a wonder of rare ingredients and artistic presentation. Reserve well in advance.
