With hundreds of hotels to choose from, finding a place to stay in Chicago can be a little overwhelming. But what if you're looking for something a little out of the box? We've rounded up three unique boutique hotels you won't find anywhere but here.
Guests at this cozy 6-room inn don't have to travel far for a good meal. Michelin-starred Longman & Eagle opened their own boutique hotel, situated directly above the restaurant, in 2010. The style here is sophisticated and modern, with exposed brick and wood-paneled walls fabricated using some of the building's original floors and ceiling beams. Each room is unique, with terrariums, vintage mirrors and art from local artists decorating the space. Check in, then head downstairs to refuel with something from their meat-centric menu, like the fan favorite wild boar sloppy joe, served with crispy sage, pickled jalapeno and a side of beef fat fries. Room rates start at $85/night. (2657 N. Kedzie Ave, Logan Square)
Built in 1927, the Talbott exudes old world charm while still keeping an eye on the future (the hotel is eco-friendly, and in 2008, became one of the first Green Seal certified hotels in the United States). In the lobby, guests are greeted with leather sofas and velvet chairs situated around the fireplace, making it feel more like an English study or a private club. Upstairs, spacious rooms are decorated in a neutral palette of creams and browns, and outfitted with carved wood furniture. Rates start at $165/night. (20 E Delaware Place, Gold Coast)
