What you should know about The Loop

When can I find the best deals on Hotels in The Loop?

The Loop is downtown Chicago's thrillingly energetic central business district, with a jaw-dropping high-rise skyline that gives Manhattan a run for its money. But this fast-paced neighborhood is also a haven for culture vultures, with cavernous museums, an abundance of spectacular street art, and palatial theaters showing lavish blockbuster musicals. The Loop is perhaps the most desirable address in one of North America's most visited cities, so hotels are naturally in high demand throughout the year. However, you might be able to secure discounted rates if you avoid peak periods like Christmas and the summer vacation season. There are often bargains to be found between January and March, although you should be prepared for potentially adverse weather.
