Combining modern luxury with classic architecture, Chicago's LondonHouse cuts a striking profile along Chicago's Riverfront. Boasting one of the best rooftop bars in the city, a perfect location right off Michigan Avenue and unparalleled views, it is easy to see why LondonHouse is one of the best places to stay in Chicago.

  1. The View

Its impossible to talk about LondonHouse without talking about its breathtaking views. Located right off Wacker Dr near Michigan Avenue, visitors are treated to panoramic views of Chicago's Riverfront Skyline. With floor to ceiling windows in the rooms, you'll be able to take in the stunning beauty of the Second City as bridges crisscross the Chicago River before reaching Lake Michigan from the comfort of your room.

2. The Rooftop

But, for the ultimate stunner, head to LH Rooftop, which many consider to be the best rooftop bar in Chicago. From the tri-level rooftop bar, you'll be able to enjoy the sparkling turquoise of the Chicago River, landmark buildings like the Marina Towers, the Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower and more. At night, the view becomes even more spectacular as the lights of the city sparkle below you.

3. The Location

LondonHouse is located in the heart of Chicago's Michigan-Wacker Historic District. Right off Michigan Avenue, you'll be a short walk away from must-see stops including Millennial Park, the Art Institute, the shops on State Street, the Theater District, and, of course, Magnificent Mile.

4. The Rooms

The rooms at LondonHouse feature a combination of traditional and modern and their goal is to make you feel as comfortable as you would at home in the middle of a big city. The rooms are spacious and and many offer breathtaking views of the Chicago River, Lake Michigan and even Magnificent Mile. Their signature LHLux beds are the pinnacle of comfort and will guarantee you get a great night of sleep.

Need to Know

I recommend LondonHouse for my clients looking to enjoy all the best Chicago has to offer. With unparalleled views, an amazing rooftop bar and an ideal spot right in the middle of the action, it's a perfect location for both business and leisure travelers.
