Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.

 

In 2018, the historic property underwent a $9 million renovation, completely redesigning all 165 guestrooms, the lobby, meeting spaces and a fitness center. The transformation into a welcoming, modern retreat still stayed true to the building’s classic architecture and historical significance.

 

Designed in 1923 by a native Chicago architect, the hotel enjoys a long history in Chicago and its Gold Coast neighborhood home. It began as a residential hotel, and today showcases artwork, sculptures and more from its 90-year history.

 

Claridge House’s quiet residential location is still close to Chicago’s notable landmarks, including Navy Pier, theaters, Magnificent Mile shopping and more. Position yourself in the enviable Gold Coast neighborhood and enjoy Chicago’s many delights.

 

A variety of accommodation types are available, all featuring fast WiFi, a fridge, spa-inspired showers and plush bedding with a pillowtop mattress. Choose from queen, standard king, king deluxe, two double queen, deluxe king feature fireplace or deluxe king suite room types.

 

The on-site fitness center boasts state-of-the-art equipment and free weights, while a second-floor spa offers manicures, pedicures and facials. The lobby-level Juniper signature restaurant is a sophisticated, but never stuffy, eatery offering everything from juices to tapas, and indoor and outdoor seating. Live music entertains on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

 

Claridge House, your home away from home, is also the perfect choice to host your next event, whether a sales meeting, a training seminar, cocktail party or other custom event. The 1,000-square-foot DaVinci Room is named for the artist, and boasts event planning and business services on site, full catering, A/V equipment and technical support and preferred rates for event attendees.
