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.

Sophisticated downtown hotel!

I stayed at the Conrad during the IPW Conference, and really enjoyed it. Wonderful central location, lux accommodations with wonderful staff. Nice lobby with bar and restaurant. Great bathroom with tub and shower and superb water pressure. I took a bath instead of a shower, which was pure indulgence.

The Museum of Science and Industry might sound a little nerdy, but in reality it is fascinating, diverse, fun and huge. You could spend a whole day here exploring all of the exhibit halls.

Great!

Everything was great. It was an upscale hotel in a great location. The only negative thing I experienced was that we paid additional for a city view room and it was not a city view at all. It only showed the roof of its facility. Other than that it was a good experience.

Fantastic Hotel

Hotel is ideally situated: access to shopping mall within hotel and close to all downtown attractions. Room was perfect - just if i am picky i would say that a light in the middle of the room in the ceiling would be a good add on. Staff were really professional and helpful, friendly... Great hotel to stay at. A bit pricey but if you want to treat yourself then don't hesitate.

Good Friendly Service

I went for a business trip with 3 other colleagues, I have to say the hotel is nicely decorated and incredibly located at the heart of Chicago, all the great places are there at a walking distance, Michigan Avenue is just a block away. The hotel is also connected to the Northbridge shopping center, everyone from the bellhop to the guys at the bar and the waiters in the dining room were like family. You should really try out any of their complimentary tranquil pillows from a menu that offers you several options such as: Stress & Relaxation Romance Cold & Flu Snore-No-More etc... I tried the first one and couldn't do without it the rest of the week

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to the Redhead Piano Bar if you feel like having a couple of drinks, i was kind of tired after walking all day but once I stepped into the bar, the atmosphere pulls you in, everyone's singing and having a good time.

Beautiful Hotel, Ideal Location!

The Conrad has comfortable beds, a great fitness room with a view of the city (most hotels have a windowless fitness area), a very helpful staff, a great restaurant for breakfast (the other meals may be great as well, I have only had breakfast there) and an entrance to great shopping that allows you to skip any cold or rainy weather outside.
