The Loop. Chicago’s iconic downtown pocket where the El (the elevated train that makes a loop around the area) dovetails with a storybook skyline and the shimmering waters of Lake Michigan. From our historic, marble-clad Kimpton Gray Hotel, you’ll have prime access to the best of the Windy City. Browse the shops on State Street and then venture to the 110-story Willis Tower for gleaming, panoramic views of Chicago. Home to tranquil lakefront gardens, art exhibits and a skating rink, walk to Millennium Park and don’t forget to capture your best selfie at the “Bean,” a shiny, reflective sculpture. Nearby, the Art Institute of Chicago is stocked with modern masters and Impressionist artists like Claude Monet. Just a short drive away, must-see South Loop landmarks include the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium. Unwind in our lobby bar at night, and come morning, refuel with warm coffee before heading out again.
