Guestrooms (available in king, two queen and Millennium king) include modern designs and smart amenities. The Millennium king room features floor-to-ceiling windows, bathroom amenities by Pharmacopia, a Nespresso coffee machine, a smart fridge and more.


Arlo Chicago’s on-site restaurant, About Last Knife, blends elements of a steakhouse with the creativity of a gastropub to service classic and elevated American cuisine. This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. Dinner highlights include filet mignon sliders, beef Wellington and salmon a la Veracruz. For brunch, choose from salmon benedict, a ribeye sandwich or lamb “lollichops,” all accompanied by delicious cocktails.

Artist Brooke Einbender created artwork specifically for Arlo Chicago’s elevators, and guests can enjoy the original work throughout the public spaces within the property.


Arlo Chicago marks Arlo’s sixth hotel overall; Arlo’s other properties include Arlo Midtown; Arlo SoHo; Arlo NoMad; Nautilus by Arlo in Miami Beach; and the recently opened Arlo Wynwood, the first-ever hotel in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood.
