Luxury Hotel near Chicago River North
Here at Hotel Chicago, we’re proud to call one of the most exciting, vibrant, and upscale districts in all of the Windy City our home: River North. As a guest of our Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, you sit in the lap of luxury right in the heart of this thrilling swath of the Near North Side.
Exploring & Enjoying River North
River North—aka the River North Gallery District—commands an iconic, highrise-studded spread along (you guessed it!) the northern waterfront of the Chicago River.
And iconic is the only word for the complex Hotel Chicago itself belongs to: Marina City, whose unmistakable Bertrand Goldberg-designed apartment towers—completed in 1968 and starring in everything from Windy City postcards to big-screen backdrops and album covers (Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, anyone?)—loom right across the street from us.
Those Marina City towers are only some of the signature architectural landmarks of River North. Another, for example, is the Nickerson Mansion, aka the “Marble Palace,” the ornate 1883-built home of Samuel Mayo Nickerson that now plays host to the Richard H. Driehaus Museum.
River North has long been renowned for its rich lineup of art galleries. It’s also developed into unquestionably one of the top hubs for dining and nightlife in all of Chicago.
And some of the stars of that scene are in and around our Marina City perch here at Hotel Chicago, not least Harry Caray’s, House of Blues Chicago, and the Tortoise Supper Club, plus the unbeatable hangouts of the 10 Pin Bowling Lounge and SPIN Chicago ping-pong club/eatery within our hotel. And don’t forget our swanky lobby bar, The Chicagoan, the perfect place for cocktail hour!
