Fodor's Review

Following renovations completed in 2013, this historic hotel is even more equipped to address the evolving needs of today's traveler—from the contemporary air of the guest rooms to the enormous swimming pool and well-stocked fitness center. The Shriner greeting "Es Salamu Aleikum" ("Peace Be To God") is etched on foyer columns, a reminder that it was once the Medinah Men's Athletic Club. The in-house destinations inclue Eno, a wine, cheese, and chocolate bar; and the popular Michael Jordan's Steakhouse.
