Contemporary luxury on the Magnificent Mile
The Conrad Chicago hotel might be a shopper's best-kept secret, like a Chanel bag on sale. Removed from the crowds, the 17-story Conrad maintains a strong city presence with rooms that look out across twinkling lights and landmark buildings. Touches of elegance dominate, but not in an old-fashioned way. Look for the bold and understated to work together, like an oversized mirror against a neutral-colored wall. Don’t miss the rooftop bar for breathtaking city views.
Highlights
  • Stunning city views from the seasonal rooftop bar and 24-hour fitness center
  • An eclectic menu featuring seasonal, local ingredients at The Restaurant at Conrad
  • Just an elevator ride away from the Shops at North Bridge on the Magnificent Mile
Rooms
The rooms and suites at the Conrad Chicago hotel ooze a sophisticated style. Find 500-count linens, pillow menus and chenille arm chairs. Natural light from the windows fill the rooms by day, while recessed lighting creates a sultry feel at night. Fresh-cut flowers and plants bring extra joy and greenery to suites. Enjoy nightly turndown service.

For there tech-savvy traveler, each room features free wireless Internet access, an iPod alarm clock with charging/docking station and 42-inch plasma flat-screen TVs.
Features
The Restaurant at the Conrad Chicago hotel puts a Midwestern spin on Asian cuisine. The Restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, relies on seasonal organic ingredients to create dishes with flair. Tufted banquettes and striped wallpaper lend a loveliness to the dining space that transcends time.

For cocktails or date nights, head to The Terrace at the Conrad Chicago hotel, a seasonal rooftop lounge that could easily double as a South Beach haunt in warmer months. Day beds and chaises with oversized pillows provide a casual contemporary backdrop to that stunning skyline. Pull up a chair at an umbrella table to soak in those views.

The large fitness center features state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, as well as stunning city views.

Awesome.

Great experience. Stayed for 3 nights. Whenever the inevitable problem came up...room was not ready on time, charged for valet service that was not used, it was taken care of immediately without question. House cleaning was awesome, sneaking in and out while we were gone.

Magnificent Mile's Best

The Conrad is located perfectly on the Magnificent Mile and attached to the elaborate North Bridge Mall, very close to the Navy Pier. The hotel itself has most every amenity except a pool. The room was VERY clean, quiet and peaceful. The staff was wonderful and attended to our every desire. A definite if you're considering a stay.

Wonderful stay!

It was our first time in Chicago. We loved the Conrad - location was perfect and service was great. We had a small problem with the shower. They fixed it instantly and offered us free breakfast to compensate us for any inconvenience.

Great Hotel, Great Location

Chicago is one of our favorite places to go and we've stayed in several hotels around the Mag Mile. The Conrad was very nice and the location could not be beat. Service was excellent, they let us check in early and the doormen were great. The room was comfortable with nice features. Our only complaint was the double beds are too small, queen beds would be sooo much nicer.

First Class Hotel

Outstanding location. Classy property. The outdoor bar on the 5th floor was a great experience. The room was a bit too small.

Top Tier Hotel at a Reasonable Price

The Conrad is on the Magnificent Mile within easy walking distance of everything in downtown Chicago. The rooms are extremely comfortable, with nice amenities such as: free wireless internet; HD TV; a variety of pillow services; and a VERY large bathroom with a large bath and separate shower.

Very nice hotel

First of all, when we purchased the room a month before we left, Orbitz stated that we would receive free overnight valet parking. When we arrived at the hotel, they informed us that you have to choose a special option on Orbitz to get that offer, which we weren't aware of. So we had to pay for overnight valet parking, which wasn't cheap. The service was fantastic; when we wanted a taxi, we had it in less than 30 seconds! There are tons of restaurants and things to do within walking distance, including the Navy Pier. Overall the hotel was absolutely great.

Bring comfortable walking shoes because you're going to want to hit a lot of places that are all within walking distance.
