Opened in March 2015, the Loews Chicago is already a standout on the Chi-Town cityscape and hotel scene, housed in a purpose-built skyscraper at 455 North Park just off East Illinois St. The hotel occupies floors one to 14 (the remaining 38 stories are for residential use), but packs a punch with 375 guestrooms and 25 suites, a Jose Garces–helmed Argentinian restaurant, a wealth of Chicago-influenced artwork and the knockout 9,000-square-foot rooftop bar with a swimming pool, bar, yoga terrace and views of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. Guestrooms are less flashy than the public spaces, done up in muted slate grays, whites and oak tones, all with King or Queen beds, flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and complimentary WiFi. Modern bathrooms have walk-in showers and posh amenities by Davines. Most impressive are the skyline views framed in floor-to-ceiling windows. Book in advance to dine at Rural Society, the Argentine steak eatery from Iron Chef–winner Jose Garces, or go for lighter bites and cocktails at the next-door lobby bar, ETA. The seasonal rooftop bar, Streeterville Social, is a show-stopping 9,000-square-foot space for drinking, grazing, yoga classes, swim sessions and admiring the classic Chicago views.
In the Area
See the city from the water aboard a boat tour or from the seat of a bike, both easily booked at the Navy Pier, a 50-acre landmark featuring parks, gardens, rides and restaurants. Save time for a visit to the world’s largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works at the Art Institute of Chicago and, if you’re there on a Sunday, make a reservation for brunch at the museum’s Terzo Piano restaurant, from award-winning chef Tony Mantuano. Back on Michigan Avenue, Mantuano also runs Spiagga, a favorite of President Obama’s for its James Beard-nominated Italian fare.
How to Get There
Incredibly impressed with the hospitality of this hotel. Every member of staff we passed wished us well, was helpful and informative, and I felt both looked after and remembered. Such a rare feeling at a large hotel in a large city. By far my best hotel experience to date.
I have been to Chicago many times and usually stay at a Hyatt. However, as a New Yorker, I have stayed at the Loews Regency in NYC and always have a fantastic stay there. So I decided to try the Loews Chicago Hotel this time and I was NOT disappointed. In fact, the service was superb, the hotel was extremely comfortable, the food was delicious and the location is only a few short blocks from Michigan Avenue. I also used Uber and local taxi's and they were there in a heartbeat. Even the taxi driver commented, "Nice Hotel". I highly recommend the Loews Chicago on your next visit to Chicago. It is an excellent hotel for business or pleasure.
Very centrally located with super friendly staff. A modern hotel with lovely rooms, excellent gym and a great swimming pool and spa. Even has a Starbucks near the hotel lobby. Staff were very accommodating even advising on how to use the Lyft app and left us a bottle of bubbly as it was a significant birthday. Would definitely return.
