Hilton Chicago

Hilton Chicago Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The historic, 1,544-room Hilton Chicago once hosted presidents and dignitaries, but today it's just a massive chain hotel in South Loop, a little far from many popular tourist sites. The grand lobby still impresses, and faux old-world rooms have high-tech amenities (flat-screen TVs, digital concierges). In 2012, the hotel launched a three year, $150 million renovation to all guest rooms and most public spaces with the goal being to meld the traditional flavor of the hotel with more modern decor and amenities.
The Blackstone, a Renaissance Hotel

The Blackstone, a Renaissance Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The quirky, 328-room Blackstone hotel across from Grant Park, in South Loop, mixes contemporary style with the building's restored historic grandeur. Some of the bright, modern rooms have great views of Lake Michigan, the meeting spaces are grand, and the on-site tapas restaurant draws locals as well as guests.
Chicago South Loop Hotel

Chicago South Loop Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 232-room hotel is far from Chicago's tourist sites, so there's no reason to stay here unless you're attending a conference at the nearby McCormick Convention Center. Business travelers will appreciate the 24-hour business center, 24-hour fitness center, free parking and free Wi-Fi, but not the sparse, cheap rooms and desolate location. Consider paying a little more for the nearby Hilton Chicago, or if you can't budge on price, the Congress Plaza.
Essex Inn

Essex Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 254-room Essex Inn is a decent value pick across the street from Grant Park, near the Museum Campus. Some of the bright, comfortable (if chain-like) rooms have great views of the lake, and the huge indoor pool and state-of-the-art fitness center are both pluses. It's true that leisure travelers can usually find comparable hotels farther north for similar rates, but the free Michigan Avenue shuttle to popular sites helps compensate for the South Loop location.
Congress Plaza Hotel

Congress Plaza Hotel Rating: 2.5 Pearls

This historic, 851-room hotel across from Grant Park is the cheaper alternative to the neighboring Hilton Chicago -- and you get what you pay for. The lobby is elegant, but features are few and rooms are basic. (None have Wi-Fi, and guests can't adjust the room temperature.) Even when the rates are low, you can probably do better elsewhere.
