In the business district, with convenient proximity to many of Chicago's best restaurant, shops, and attractions
Located on Michigan Avenue within The Loop, this Hard Rock places guests just steps from some of Chicago's best shopping and restaurant options. A short walk gets you to Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as the Magnificent Mile to the north.
The Loop, the city's main business district, is the heart of downtown Chicago. Here, looming corporate towers and 19th century buildings sit side-by-side. Many of the things first-time visitors will have on their to-do list are inside the boundaries of The Loop -- Grant Park, futuristic Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, Buckingham Fountain, the Theatre District, and even Chicago's oldest restaurant, the Berghoff.
Housed in the Carbide & Carbon building -- a Chicago landmark supposedly inspired by the design of a champagne bottle -- the Hard Rock stands out among the rest of Chicago's hotels. Inside, the property is sophisticated, stylish, and fun, with some original art deco embellishments on the floor and, of course, the rock-n-roll paraphernalia. Each floor showcases a different recording artist -- from Prince, to John Lennon, to Madonna -- and each of the 381 contemporary rooms has theme-appropriate touches, such as notable quotes on the mirrors. Located in the heart of the Chicago's business district, this Hard Rock is a popular choice with business travelers, and consequently, many meeting spaces can be found on-site.
