Great for the price w/ some minor issues, no poolI have stayed here twice when I've had business in Hyde Park. First time the only issue I had was the fridge was broken and froze anything I put in it. There is clearly no pool. No idea why they still list that. Second time I went to stay I found out that I should have been given a voucher for discounted ...

Convenient locationAlthough an older building, the DeWitt is most accommodating and convenient to Michigan, downtown / uptown. With a small efficiency kitchen, one can save on meals during a longer stay in town. The bed was comfortable, no distractions of noise, and room was clean.

Beach Hotel Guide in Chicago

When you’re ready for something a little different, come to Chicago’s sprawling beaches.

  • Search over 876 beach hotels in Chicago
  • Read verified reviews to find the best accommodations for you
  • Stay near attractions like Navy Pier and Millennium Park

Pack your swimsuit and make sure you’ve got your sunglasses, because your Chicago beach trip is about to begin.

The shores of Lake Michigan provide a number of beaches for you to explore; Chicago has 41 km of beach altogether. Head over to 57th Street Beach, located south of Promontory Point. Designed by Olmstead & Vaux—the designers of Central Park—this beach offers plenty of sand to frolic in, a lifeguard station, and a food stand in the summer. Lake Michigan rarely warms up all that much, but the braver among you can go for a swim in its blue depths. In winter, the lake gets even colder. Feeling particularly daring? Join one of the local Polar Bear Swims and see how long you last in the icy waters.

If you’re looking for some sporting action, North Avenue Beach is the place to be. You can play volleyball, rent kayaks, or splash around in the shallow waters to your heart’s content. You’ll have plenty of company; North Avenue Beach is extremely popular with the locals.

When you’re beachcombing in Chicago, a beach hotel is the perfect place to stay. You’ll be right near the water; just put on your board shorts and amble out of your hotel and straight to the shore. You won’t need to worry about taking public transportation to the beach, or getting the frown of a cabbie when you track sand into his not-so-pristine cab. Some beach hotels offer the use of sun loungers, chairs, and other items that can make your sandy adventure more fulfilling—inquire at the desk to see what they can do for you.

Expedia.ca knows you want to enjoy your beach trip without worrying about all the details. Let us find you the best discounts on your accommodations, whether you want to stay at the beach or at another type of Chicago hotel. We’ll handle the nitty-gritty, leaving you more time to construct the perfect sandcastle.
