While we’d argue that Chicago is a great city all year round, one of the best times to visit Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago is in the warmer months, usually late May to late September. Except for a few hot, humid weeks in late July and early August, Chicago in the summer is filled with eager city dwellers itching to bask in the sun after months of being cooped up. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s downtown location puts you in a convenient place to explore the city’s biggest attractions, parks, museums and shopping (Michigan Avenue is just outside). Plus, the hotel sits along the Chicago River, and one of the must-do summertime activities is a river architecture tour. Here’s another reason we recommend staying there in the summer: The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s Terrace at Trump opens for the season in May. It’s a great spot to relax alfresco with a cocktail, mingle with friends and take in the beautiful view.
Every season in Chicago has something special to offer a traveler, especially with a stay at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago. In winter, visitors enjoy ice-skating in Millennium Park; in summer it is tough to beat a nice day at the Lake Michigan beach. However, summer and winter can have extreme temperatures and can occasionally be unpleasant. Because of that, early fall and late spring are some of the best times to visit Chicago. The weather is typically quite temperate and very pleasant and makes exploring the city a true delight.
Walking along the lake on a warm fall afternoon, enjoying a cocktail on an outdoor terrace or experiencing an outdoor movie in the park are all best suited for a warm day. Chicago is a terrific city to walk — very accessible by foot throughout a majority of the city. Winter hardly encourages long walks and in the summer it can be just as uncomfortable in the heat. Because of this, it is best to come in the transition months when the temperature is just right.
