Swissôtel Chicago


Swissôtel  Chicago  is  located  where  Lake  Michigan  meets  the  Chicago  River.  We’re  just  a  short walking  distance  from  the  “Loop,”  financial  district,  government  center,  cultural  institutions  and museums.  Here,  you  are

at  the  center  of  diverse  activities  and  major  shopping  districts  such  as The Magnificent Mile and State Street.


Inspired by the work of the building’s original architect, Harry Weese, Swissôtel Chicago’s renovated lobby has been transformed into a welcoming oasis for guests. The lobby now features a modern design with natural elements and an earth tone palette that reflect the hotel’s Swiss heritage.

This natural feel is set off by attention grabbing splashes of color, dramatic art, and lighting elements like the artistic rainstorm created by thousands of dangling glass bubble fixtures. Backlit glass panels, etched with Chicago’s skyline, sit just behind the check-in area. Projected just about the bar area, Swissôtel Chicago’s Swiss Circle, by award-winning artist Jork André Dieter, changes color to reflect various moods throughout the day.  This illuminated work features two rings of Chicago landmarks and historic elements like Solider Field and Cloud Gate, while the center shows off Chicago’s skyline and Lake Michigan.

Check-in pods replaced the traditional bulky hotel front desk, affording a more welcoming experience for the guest upon arrival.  Front desk agents will now work from laptop computers, giving them the flexibility to interact with guests even when they are away from their pod. The concierge will be armed with tablets for quick access to all necessary information a guest may need to know, and a Nervana Ghost Wall will act as a digital concierge for guests to check weather, map local routes, and research area attractions.

Overlooking  panoramic  views  of  Lake  Michigan,  the  Penthouse  Fitness  Center  helps  you  stay  in tiptop  shape  while  you  are  away  from  your  home  gym.  Pump  up  your  energy  level  with  a our comprehensive array of aerobic machines, strength equipment, free weights, bicycles, treadmills and Precor fitness equipment.
