Located on the banks of the Chicago River right next door to the famed Marina Towers, there’s no doubt about it—when you stay in the Langham Hotel, you know you’re in Chicago.
The Langham Hotel opened its doors this past July, with in-room amenities like 55-inch TVs, deep soaking tubs and spa quality toiletries, and of course, knock-out views. The style here is modern luxury, with a neutral color palette accentuated by pops of purple, and the bathrooms bedecked in marble.
Outside of the hotel’s 268 guest rooms and 48 suites, the Langham also includes the Chuan Spa, a 22,000 square-foot spa and wellness facility, complete with a 67-foot swimming pool.
The hotel is also home to Travelle, a restaurant serving up contemporary Mediterranean dishes like Ligurian snapper carpaccio and whole braised leg of lamb served with buckwheat polenta and spicy parsnips. For after-dinner views, head to the lounge, which looks over the Chicago River and affords panoramic skyline views.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of many of the city’s top attractions, like the high-end shops on Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park, the Chicago Art Museum, the John Hancock Tower, the Old Water Tower and Navy Pier.
The hotel itself is even housed in a building famous in its own right—it was designed by the celebrated architect Mies van der Rohe and is a prominent feature of the Chicago skyline.
Rooms start at $272/night and can be booked on the Langham’s website.
