See Chicago from a whole new perspective. The Royal Sonesta Chicago Downtown hotel welcomes you to the city’s intersection of work and play, where the Chicago River meets the famed Michigan Avenue. All of downtown Chicago is within easy reach, from Millennium Park and the Magnificent Mile to Lincoln Park and the Loop.

Reimagined interiors breathe new life into a historic building, inviting you to kick back and stay awhile in Chicago’s “living room.” Admire city and river views from many of the guest rooms, including some of Chicago’s largest hotel rooms and suites. Dine on memorable, locally-sourced cuisine at Hoyt’s American Tavern. Step outside directly onto the Chicago Riverwalk for a jog or sweat it out in state-of-the-art fitness facilities. And if business brings you to Chicago, our renovated 16,000 square feet of flexible meeting space has everything you need to stay connected, productive and inspired.
