For full immersion in downtown Chicago’s high rises, fashion boutiques, and live music bars, stay in one of the Loop’s luxury hotels. The Near North area – just north of the Loop – is another downtown hotspot for luxury hotels. Here, you’ll enjoy contemporary galleries, trendy restaurants, and Beaux-Arts architecture. The luxury hotels in the Near South side, meanwhile, provide a quieter setting.

The Fairmont Chicago at Millennium Park provides similarly exclusive accommodation – here, you’ll enjoy a full-service spa, valet parking, and town car services.

The most unique things to do in ChicagoChicago sings with unique experiences primed to give your city break that unforgettable VIP edge.

Make your tour more special by hiring the house for a private drinks reception, or a private catered dinner. One of Chicago’s most iconic high-rises is the John Hancock Building, a glittery downtown marvel with an observation deck on the 94th floor – privately hire the deck for a drinks reception, and enjoy stellar views across the city and shimmering Lake Michigan. Shoppers, meanwhile, can explore the luxury fashion boutiques – including Tiffany and Cartier – dotted along the Magnificent Mile.

For truly luxury means of Chicago city transport, book a private chauffeur service – there are plenty to choose from – or make use of your glitzy hotel’s limo/town car facilities.
