Fodor's Expert Review The Langham, Chicago

330 N. Wabash Ave., Chicago, Illinois, 60611, USA Fodor's Choice

A Mies van der Rohe–designed skyscraper is now home to the city's hottest stay. It stands out for its winning mix of impeccable service, sleek style, and outstanding location. Spacious guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, dressing parlors, and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and rain showers; the luxurious bath amenities hail from the hotel's Chuan Spa, where treatments inspired by Chinese medicine include the two-hour "jet lag revival." Inventive cocktails are served in a midcentury-modern lounge overlooking the Chicago River, while Travelle at The Langham (a Mediterranean-focused, David Rockwell–designed restaurant), has some of the most coveted tables in town.
