Travellers' Choice
It doesn’t get more Chicago than this 1893 icon of old-world design and good cheer. Originally home to an elite men’s club, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel building is an architectural gem dating back to 1893. Converted to a boutique hotel and urban playground of the same name in 2015, the property sports 240 guest rooms, seven bars & restaurants, the city's first Topgolf Swing Suite, and a downtown location central to Millennium Park, Lake Michigan, The Loop, and more. The Chicago Athletic Association hotel offers an artfully-restored historic stay along with some of the city’s most-lauded dining and drinking outlets. This hotel has received the 2022 Tripadvisor's Travelers Choice Award for consistently earning great reviews and also ranks within the 10% of properties on Tripadvisor.

Before our trip we watched a review on You Tube and our stay pretty much mirrored the video except our view. Our view was of a brick wall and we were right next to the vents so we heard a loud hum all night. The room was very clean and service was spectacular. If we asked for more towels they were dropped off in minutes. Everyone was very accommodating. Cons: water splashed out of the shower on to the floor making puddle. Not many places to put clothes and only one hook in the bathroom to hang up a towel. Heat was not adjustable but the windows open and they did offer us a fan. Overall we were very happy with our stay and I would definitely recommend it.

Hotel's Favourite
While I was in the bar in the Cherry Circle Room, another patron commented that this was the most beautiful hotel he had ever seen. Restored to it's 1894 glory, this former private men's club for the .01% is now available for anyone who wishes to visit the lobby and become a Gilded Age millionaire. The rooms are quirky, but in a fun way. A lot of the rooms are converted athletic courts, which means you might end up with a crazy high ceiling or an odd shape. But there's a lot of humor in the interior design, with gym netting above the desk and pommels at the end of the bed. CAA is an exercise in wit & style. Wry & ironic, they take their service seriously, but never themselves. My one suggestion is that in the mornings or when the hotel is quieter you might turn down the techno pop dance music, when the game room is hopping, but nobody's dancing at 7AM in Chicago, in January. :-) I'm already planning my next visit. Thank you for your amazing hotel!

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and so helpful to someone who it’s their first time in the city. The design of the lobby is breathtaking. The Game room a great spot to grab a bite and a nice cocktail. Room service options were plentiful and moderate in their pricing. I can’t wait to stay here agai

Beautiful and Unique property with excellent service! The check out and check in process was seamless (All done from my phone). This hotel is centrally located and near everything you'd want to experience downtown, however, the action is in your hotel so you'll more likely want to explore this space before heading out. I will definitely be back!

From the moment we walked in till the moment we headed to the airport, our stay with CAA was outstanding. The staff went above and beyond, the lobby and game room were huge parts of our stay. I could have camped out in the lobby by the fire all day.

I wouldn't spend nearly as much money as I did to stay here. The rooms get insanely hot in the winter, even though I had the heat down to 65. There's nothing to me that screams "4-star hotel" about this place. Sure, the bed and bathroom were clean and they gave you a bottle of Fiji, but that's kinda what I expect out of any place I stay. Not much to write home about.

The hotel is beautiful and my room was very clean/lovely with a comfortable bed. However – the heat in my room did not work and the staff was of no concern about it. In addition, I tried to order lunch and many of the (short) menu items were not available (salads etc.).

peasrp, Thank you for taking a moment to share feedback after your recent stay with us. We are disheartened to learn that we were unable to be more proactive in assisting with the issues brought to our attention and will be taking this as a learning opportunity as we continue to improve our services. We certainly hope you will give the CAA a second opportunity. Best, Kristen K.

Good but not quite up to par. We requested a 1pm early check in which seemed a non issue by the staff - never happened upon arrival and our guarantee of 3pm check in was late as well. Not to mention one of our bags got lost and was finally tracked down…

Hello jbbrew2, Thank you for sharing your recent hotel visit with us we are truly sorry that we were unable to honor your early check-in and even more sorry that we did not have that room ready by the 3pm check in time. I will be sure to share this information with our housekeeping leadership, so they know you had to wait as well. I hope that your luggage did not go missing for long as this in not normal and will be sure to speak with my team about the care of our guest personal belongings. I hope that this is not a deterring factor in you choosing the CAA on your next visit to Chicago as we would love to show you how we truly shine.
