An exclusive dining club for the city's elite in the 1920s, this Gold Coast boutique hotel that once hosted the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Mick Jagger has spacious, updated rooms in a stellar location close to Magnificent Mile shopping, Rush Street nightlife, and the Oak Street beach. Luxurious linens and lots of dark wood reinforce the elite feel. Two restaurants are on-site: Fornetto Mei serves Italian dishes that include standout pizza, and Mei's Corner is a casual,
street-level Asian restaurant with authentic food and decent prices for the area. Staff is friendly and welcoming.
