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.

Conrad Chicago

My daughter and I stayed two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely come back again. The location, especially for shopping, is perfect, the food in the terrace bar was delicious, the room was roomy and the beds very comfortable particularly the pillows. The bathroom was spacious and had all the amenities we needed. the only drawback and something we didn't really need otherwise we would have asked, is that the mini fridge wasn't working. Definitely a great hotel - I would absolutely recommend staying here. We saw alot of families in the hotel as well as couples and business people - it works for everyone.

Terrific amenities in room with dvd/cd sound and large flat screen TV. Very good wireless and fancy bathroom with tub and seperate shower. Connects to mall so shopping is easier.

Beware of parking!

I picked the Conrad Chicago because of the discounted room rate and the [...] special offer that included overnight parking. Unfortunately, the check-in staff person was unwilling to fully validate my parking (in the self-park garage across the street) because the special offer didn't show up in my room confirmation. [...] I asked the hotel staff again at check-out without success.The hotel is in a great location and the room was very nice. I just wish [...] the Conrad would have paid the $35 for overnight parking...

Great brunch at Frontera Grill (Rick Bayless) on Saturday. Got there around 10:15 a.m. on Saturday and waited in line for the doors to open at 11. Wonderful food! Excellent service! Nice atmosphere!

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The Conrad has a great location for shopping and site seeing; but if you want to hear the "real deal" Chicago blues, you will probably want to take a taxi to either Buddy Guy's or some of the clubs on Halstead Street. Check with the concierge and you may be able to get free admission to some of the clubs

Good value

Hotel staff was friendly and allowed us to check in at noon. Good concierge. The room was clean and spacious. The bathtub was very nice. Big flat-screen TV was also a plus. Would have liked a coffeemaker.

A very elegant hotel

Maybe 4-1/2 stars. Very elegant, large rooms, classy service. Because of this, this was my second stay there. But... If you are driving, it's VERY hard to get to the front door! Even though I had stayed there before, I STILL missed it the first time! Rush street is one way AND one level below Michigan Avenue at this point. Make sure you study the maps CAREFULLY to know how to get there. Directions: From Michigan Avenue (north of the river) go west on Grand (three blocks), south on State (two blocks), east on Hubbard (two blocks), north on Rush (one block). Can't miss it!

not all that

The concierge at the hotel was rude, short and talked down to me as if I were a child. He was unpleasant but worse, was not at all helpful.

Great stay

I had a great stay. I came for a conference, and the Conrad had better rates than most of the recommended conference hotels. It turned out to be much nicer than what a lot of my colleagues had. The room came with flat screen HD tv, BOSE stereo, very comfy bed. I had a good soak in the deep bathtub. Ordering a relaxation pillow from the complimentary pillow menu felt very luxurious. All in all, I was very happy with my stay.

In the fall, the navy pier had a weekend fireworks display and circus. It was really fun. It's a decent walk, but there's also a free trolley.
