The sprawling city of Chicago isn’t only a metropolis of museums, galleries, and restaurants – it also boasts a bounty of luxury hotels. 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.

Where to find the best fine dining in Chicago

Chicago’s culinary culture champions fancy fine dining, from European haute-cuisine restaurants to modern fusion eateries. In the heart of downtown Chicago, you’ll find classically high-end dining rooms, from fancy steakhouses to elegant and authentic Italian restaurants. If you’re after more adventurous cuisine, check out the trendy restaurants in Wicker Park, where you can sample experimental dishes cooked by celebrity chefs.

The most unique things to do in Chicago

Chicago sings with unique experiences primed to give your city break that unforgettable VIP edge. Architecture enthusiasts looking for a truly elite experience can book a private tour of innovative American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House – an early 20th-century home designed in a pioneering Prairie style of architecture, full of inventive Art Deco fittings. 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.

Best ways to get around Chicago

Chicago’s extensive subway network – known as the L, short for “elevated” – will get you around the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods with ease. If you don’t fancy the subway, cruise around the city by taxicab, which can be hailed on the street or booked from your hotel or chosen restaurant. 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.
