The 5 Best Business Hotels in Chicago

The Windy City has no shortage of hotels for business travelers who descend upon Chicago year-round for meetings, conferences, and retreats. But not every hotel can offer business travelers the best amenities that make business trips more efficient, relaxing and accommodating. Here’s our take on the five best business hotels in Chicago:

W Chicago Lakeshore

Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, and with 14,000 square feet of event space perfect for business meetings, the W Chicago is the ideal urban hotel for business travelers. Known for its modern design and accommodations for travelers, including its high-end spa and heated indoor pool, and its W Signature beds, the W Chicago Lakeshore is a highly sought after business hotel reservation.

The Peninsula Chicago

With this catchphrase, “where Far Eastern graciousness meets with Midwestern hospitality”, the five star Peninsula Chicago consistently ranks high on the luxury business traveler list of hotels. Its elegant and serene opulence, combined with an ideal downtown location and plenty of event space, make it a top choice for business and leisure travelers alike.

Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile

Ideally situated on Chicago’s famous shopping district, the French-inspired Sofitel Chicago offers guests a one-of-a-kind “art de Vivre” experience, from its accommodations, event space, and dining options. With most of downtown Chicago within easy walking distance, the Sofitel Chicago is a high-end option for any type of meeting or business gathering.

Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel

With its unique exterior, designed by famed architect Jeanne Gang, the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel is a striking spot set amidst downtown Chicago. Offering 28,000 square feet of event space, a rooftop swimming pool, onsite Italian cuisine, and, incredibly, pet-friendly rooms (for your service animal or comfort pet), the Radisson Blu Aqua is a business traveler’s dream site.

The Langham, Chicago

Rated the #1 hotel in Chicago in 2018 by Travel & Leisure, The Langham, Chicago, is the epitome of elegance and luxury. Rooms and suites are designed to provide comfort and relaxation while event space is equipped with the most up to date audio visual capabilities so meetings go smoothly and efficiently.
