Before you book a hotel for your next stay in Chicago, consider what qualities you consider the most essential for your enjoyment. Do you like historic buildings? Do you prefer a hotel that’s a bit upscale or are you seeking affordability? There are some guests who prefer to check out the freshest additions to the Chicago skyline. Like all big cities, the Windy City is constantly in flux, as older constructions are brought low and new designs arise from the rubble. If you want a modern, sleek, new hotel to stay in, Chicago is always constructing exciting new accommodations for you to stay in and enjoy.
Over a dozen hotels opened in Chicago between 2017 and 2018. One such hotel at the McCormick Center received three brands by Hilton- Hilton Garden, Hampton Inn, and Home2 Suites, all by Hilton Chicago McCormick Center. It’s connected to the convention center by a skybridge and carries business convenience onward through meeting rooms, business centers, and all the equipment you might need for work. A restaurant and fitness center are also available. Also exceptionally new to Chicago with its October 2018 opening is Aloft Chicago Mag Mile. An exceptionally style-conscious building featuring pop art, dark textured walls, and sleek modern furnishing, Aloft includes an indoor pool, pool table, snack bar, bar and lounge, and more amenities.
Other hotels that opened recently include Hotel EMC2, Autograph Collection, Cambria Chicago Loop – Theatre District, Ace Hotel, Marriott Marquis Chicago, Viceroy Hotel, Hotel Zachary, Four Points by Sheraton Mount Prospect O’Hare, and St. Jane Chicago. These exceptionally modern hotels all place an emphasis on convenience, in particular for the frequent business traveler on the go. Furthermore, they’re designed with an eye towards environmental sustainability and interesting design choices. Hotel Zachary, for example, located just across the street from Wrigley Field has a green roof. The Viceroy Hotel features curved rooms and ample natural lighting in all areas, including dining and bar areas.
Chicago’s newest hotels aren’t always the most affordable, but they often offer the most intriguing balance of features, appearance, and services. If located in the heart of the city, parking will typically not be free, though some of those located in the suburbs may trend towards being free. Whether you’re planning a stay for pleasure, business, or romance, you’re sure to admire the refreshing new take on travel offered by modern, recently-built hotels in Chicago.
