    We would like to give one big thank you to ChicagoTraveler.com for adding us in their review of the Top 10 Downtown Chicago Hotels.

    We are happy to be on your Top 10 – and even more honored that you mentioned that we are one of your “absolute favorite Downtown Chicago Hotels.” We’ll admit our location in River North is a great location, no matter what you want to do in Chicago. We are steps away from Magnificent Mile shopping and entertainment, various restaurants, and fun places in the city.

  • Just One of our Natural Elements

    Posted on January 29th, 2014 gjordan No comments

    One way we try to create happiness while you stay with us is by utilizing natural elements. As you walk into the hotel you are welcomed with the all-natural elements of earth, wind and fire. The design was created by Gettys who believe design should be, “visually captivating and sustainable.”

  • Firewood HF

  • We agree. One of the ways they helped us incorporate natural elements is our wall of fire wood. Masked by the beauty of the city, it can be difficult to fully captivate the splendor of nature. Our wall of firewood help bring the natural component indoors so you can stay Happy. Naturally.

  • Displayed right next to our comforting fireplace, this design piece helps warm your heart as you warm your toes. You can see this lovely statement of sustainability any time in our lobby. While you are here make sure to say hi to Scrappy and Loren.
