When visiting a city, sometimes you really want to be in the middle of it all. If you are in Chicago, the Loews Downtown Hotel has you covered. Staying in this location allows you to easily get to pretty much anything you want to see! Not to mention the hotel itself is so comfortable and stylish that you’ll never want to leave.
LOEWS DOWNTOWN CHICAGO
Each Loews Hotel is different and has its own, unique theme. This is noticeable throughout the hotel, but particularly in the lobby of the Downtown Chicago location. From the floor to the ceiling (literally), you can see the inspiration of the city of Chicago.
We were happy that we were able to bring our pets on this adventure with us since Loews is pet friendly! As we were checking in, we were given a bag for our pets that included a mat, doggie bags, bowls, and even treats. Needless to say that my pets were pleased with this.
While checking in, I had my two dogs with me in the lobby, and one of the dogs somehow slipped out of his collar. This was super embarrassing for me as he made his way through the lobby. I was so very thankful that the staff didn’t freak out (like I did) and helped me grab him and get settled to finish our check in process.
After we were helped up to our room, one of the first things that we noticed was the spectacular view. The room was facing the water and was honestly the perfect spot for a photo op. I loved the fact that the window went all the way down to the floor, and our dogs absolutely loved looking down at the people and cars passing by.
We were soon greeted with welcome treats that included dried pineapple (which we had actually been craving) and champagne among other things. This was such a nice touch to help us get settled in!
The room itself had a modern decor feel, and everything felt new and polished. I really liked the lounge chair with the ottoman to sit in while I worked. The blackout curtains, which are a must, were a welcomed feature that allowed us to not be awakened by the morning sun before we were ready.
The Loews Downtown Chicago has some pretty great amenities and features that help it stand out among the rest. For one, I was a huge fan of their fitness center. It was definitely state of the art and had everything in it that I could have asked for. There is also an indoor pool that is the perfect place to spend some time and unwind.
Perhaps one of my favorite features was the ETA Restaurant that was located inside of the lobby. The food and service were both outstanding. It is so nice to have a restaurant like that right at your finger tips. This way, if you don’t feel like hunting down food, you’ve got a world class chef right downstairs.
During the summer months, they also have Streetville Social which is located on the roof of the building. Here, you can enjoy stunning views while eating gourmet bits and having a drink with friends. Definitely a must see if you are in town during the summer.
Overall, if you are looking for a classy and convenient place to stay when visiting Chicago, you really can’t go wrong with the Loews Downtown Chicago location. Not only will you be treated well, but you will also have downtown Chicago to explore, right outside your door!
