Why We Like It

Gorgeous historical design and glittering views of the Chicago River are so impressive that it's worth visiting this property even if you're not staying there. Situated on the Magnificent Mile, its central proximity to major destinations like the theatre district, Navy Pier, and River North can't be beat. A recent addition to the city's hotel scene, the property stands out with brand new, tech-friendly amenities to help guests stay connected. Business travelers and young professionals will probably dig the vibe more than families looking for on-site activities, but plush accommodations will undoubtedly make everyone feel taken care of.

Get a glimpse of Chicago's iconic Art Deco era at this two-tower property, a redeveloped vintage throwback incorporating gorgeous original features from this historic skyscraper dating back to the 1920s.


Drawing on the Deco theme, expect sleek designed black leather furniture, textured dark gray rugs, white Frette linens, and black brick facades with sweeping views of the Chicago River. Tech-friendly amenities include 58-inch TVs with Sonicast streaming service, Nespresso coffee makers, Tivoli radios, and customizable minibars with your favorite treats.

Suites are often in-demand due to features like a private chefs' pantry with huge living room, dual sided fireplace, and full bath.

Modern gray marble standing showers and Malin + Goetz products make it worth singing an extra song while freshening up in the morning. Meanwhile, vintage-inspired silver fixtures and black marble vanity might pre-empt a few selfies in the mirror (particularly if you throw on cushy Frette robes).


Take the stunning golden staircase (an original relic of the historic property) to the second floor to find ornate contemporary art with a vintage slant enveloping the lobby.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Smart elevators are programmed to efficiently take guests to their floor, so you won't have to worry about getting stuck on a car that stops on every floor.


On the 21st floor is the tri-level LH restaurant and bar, featuring an indoor restaurant and bar outfitted with natural quartz facades and fireplaces, a seasonal outdoor terrace with firepits, and third level with primary dining—all with excellent views of Chicago River.

The Cupola room, a private dining outdoor rotunda with 360 views of Chicago, is usually booked. But if you happen to catch it unoccupied, purchase a glass of Dom Perignon champagne and let the bartender know you're interested in enjoying a half hour in the space.

When the weather is peak, head to the 22nd floor to take in incredible views of the Chicago River over creative craft cocktails on LH's outdoor terrace.

Getting Around

It's easy to grab a bus outside the hotel along East Upper Wacker Drive and Michigan Avenue, or walk a short distance to catch most major L trains at State Street and Lake Street. But if time is an issue, you'll find it's faster to hail a taxi or use an app like Lyft or Uber to get where you need to go.


Just over the Chicago River is a foodie wonderland of River North hotspots like The Purple Pig (6-minute walk), Frontera Grill (13-minute walk), and NAHA (13-minute walk)—along with pretty much anything else you can image. Steakhouses options abound here, including Smith & Wollensky (8-minute walk), Morton's The Steakhouse (3-minute walk), Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse (9-minute walk), and Chicago Cut Steakhouse (12-minute walk).


Craft beer fans would do well to check out 100 drafts at Howell's & Hood (4-minute walk) or Public House (8-minute walk). Sip on excellent margaritas at Mercadito and La Mez Agave Lounge (11-minute walk) before Three Dots & A Dash for tiki drinks or Bub City for casual country western (12-minute walk). If wine is more your speed, stroll down the Chicago Riverwalk to City Winery (6-minute walk) for a glass along the water.
