  • Great location along the Magnificent Mile
  • Large rooms, with excellent city or lake views and up-to-date amenities
  • Gorgeous indoor pool and whirlpool

Cons

Bottom Line

The 346-room Four Seasons Chicago is located on floors 32 to 46 of a limestone-and-glass skyscraper along the Magnificent Mile, atop an upscale shopping center. The hotel boasts a gorgeous indoor pool with a skylight and great views, an expansive spa and fitness center with modern machines, and a restaurant helmed by Michelin-star Executive Chef Kevin Hickey. Guest rooms boast phenomenal views, and were updated in 2012 with modern decor and art fixtures. It's one of the city's nicest hotels, and the location near the historic Water Tower and the Hancock Observatory can't be beat. But bathrooms -- most with shower/tub combos rather than separate walk-in showers and soaking tubs --are a tad less luxurious than you'd expect in this price range (though still lovely).

 Location

Along the Magnificent Mile, in a skyscraper atop the 900 North Michigan Shops

The Four Seasons Chicago entrance is right off of the Magnificent Mile, an iconic stretch of North Michigan Avenue that's famous for its upscale shopping. And some of the street's best shopping is housed in the same skyscraper as the Four Seasons: Bloomingdale's, Gucci, Michael Kors, and more are just downstairs. Also within walking distance: the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Old Chicago Water Tower District, Water Tower Place, the Hancock Observatory, and American Girl Place.

 Food

Fam-to-table restaurant Allium is headed by Michelin star Chef Kevin Hickey

The hotel opened Allium in 2012, a farm-to-table restaurant with seasonal selections from the Four Season's rooftop garden and local farms. Allium highlights Midwestern argiculture with hearty meat and vegetable plates, and also includes Chicago classics like hot dogs and thick cuts of beef. The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Kevin Hickey, known for luring Michelin stars to the hotel's eponymous Seasons restaurant, which has since closed.
