Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center

One Lake Front Dr., Zion - Map
"Beach Location"
We spent a night at the resort on our way home on vacation. It is a very pretty location on the shore of Lake Michigan. Front desk personnel were friendly and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the on-site restaurant and the fish buffet, on Friday, was good. Breakfast was very good. The waitstaff were very gracious, helpful and friendly.

Millennium Knickerbocker

163 East Walton Place, Chicago - Map
"Ideal Gold Coast location, across from the Drake."
This was my third stay at the Knickerbocker and I still think you can't beat it for the price. If you like old, historic hotels as I do, this one is hard to beat. The location is ideal, convenient to shopping, transportation, express buses to neighborhoods north along the lake via Lake Shore Drive, as well as south to downtown. The room was very comfortable and I was delighted to have a partial lake view, directly across, between the Drake and the tall vintage highrise building next door to it. If your room overlooks Walton and ends in "20" you will be perfectly positioned to see it. I will always ask for one of these in the future. The only flaw in the room comfort was lack of heat. I was informed that the corporate policy dictates no heat unless the outside temp. falls below 50 F! Well, that can be a bit chilly when it's windy and you're getting out of bed in the morning. I was told by the front desk that I could request extra blankets or a small personal heater which I definitely recommend for the bathroom, one wants to be warm when stepping out of the shower. Otherwise everyone was very pleasant and helpful and there is a nice small restaurant off the lobby where one can have breakfast or lunch, or pick up coffee and pastries to take back to one's room.

Raffaello Hotel - Chicago Hotels

Raffaello Hotel

201 E Delaware Pl, Chicago - Map
"A great hotel with style"
A fantastic hotel, our suite was furnished nicely and had a lot of space. The bed was comfortable, in room facilities were excellent and the bathroom decent. The whisky bar upstairs was a great surprise, expensive but very good. Room service was even more expensive than expected, especially compared with the room rates, but not a big deal. The TV package includes HBO which was nice. We were on the third floor so could walk easily if the elevators were busy, with only two tiny elevators it was much quicker to walk the stairs at peak times such as nights. No real views out the window but we didn't expect any, overall our room was great and the Raffaello exceeded all of our expectations, a wonderful place to stay and the best we stayed in on our honeymoon.

Chicago Lake Shore Hotel

4900 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago - Map
"Nice hotel on next to Lake Shore for great price "
We usually stay in Schaumburg when we go to Chicago because rates are a little cheaper but we wanted to stay closer so we didn't have to drive 45 minutes into the city. This place offers free parking and the rooms are nice. I was a little sceptical when I read the reviews but was impressed when we got there. You cannot hear the traffic from Lake Shore Drive. They offer coupons for a discounted buffet breakfast at the restaurant right next to the hotel which was amazing and totally worth $7pp!!! The hotel also offers a shuttle service that will take you to certain places. We saved $25 in parking because it took us to The Museum of Science and Industry. I would definitely stay here again!

    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. 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.
