With just under 40 properties in 17 countries, the upscale Swissotel chain, founded in 1980, is known for offering unique and innovative touches, and the Swissotel Chicago is no exception. The all-glass, pyramid-shaped hotel is a standout even in a city that's renowned for its incredible architecture. From its lush lobby lit with sparkling, bubble-shaped fixtures to its 42nd-floor fitness center, Swissotel Chicago cuts a genuinely unique figure. While staying at this four-diamond hotel, hit the 42nd-floor Penthouse Fitness Centre and Pool for dramatic views of the city, state-of-the-art cardio equipment, a 45-foot pool, a dry sauna, a Jacuzzi and much more.
Location
Swissotel Chicago puts guests right in the center of the best that the Windy City has to offer. When you stay here, you're just a short walk away from incredible shopping along the Magnificent Mile. Cloud Gate, known as The Bean, and the other unique sculptures of Millennium Park are just steps away. On a clear day, it's easy to stroll from Swissotel to The Art Institute, Navy Pier, the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and Chicago's countless other attractions.

Luxury on the river

This hotel was perfect for my two day trip. Close to most everything that I wanted to do and in a very safe area to walk around in the evening. Don't miss Millennium Park, which is just a few blocks away. I was disappointed that the hotel didn't offer free wi-fi in the rooms, but it is free in the lobby, so it worked out just fine. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great location!

Great location for accessing anywhere in downtown! Majority of staff were super friendly, bar the bell hop on our check out who didn't seem to want to take our bags for left luggage. Only other downside was the cost of extras, the water in the room was $8 a bottle!! All in all a fantastic place and will definitely return!

Great Buy and very friendly.

I loved this hotel. We had two double rooms for four women celebrating a milestone birthday and they were terrific. The room was great. Overlooking the lake. They even gave us two comp breakfasts on the concierge floor. And send birthday cake and balloons to the celebrant. Who could ask for anything more. Thanks.

Don't eat at Spiaggia. It is a rip off. Pretty but not a well spent dollar.
