Waldorf Astoria Chicago’s prime location gives you quick access to some of the city’s best attractions. If you’re into art, hit up the Museum of Contemporary Art just a few blocks away (as a guest of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, you’ll have complimentary entrance into the museum). Another fantastic museum — some say the country’s best — is the Art Institute of Chicago, the second-largest art museum in the United States. Adjacent to the museum is the much-visited Millennium Park, which hosts concerts and events throughout the year. Here you’ll also be able to see the famed Cloud Gate sculpture, locally known as ‘The Bean.’
And if shopping is more your thing, then you’ll be happy with Waldorf Astoria Chicago’s Gold Coast location — some of the Windy City’s best boutiques and designer stores are within a few blocks of the hotel. Need more? Lake Michigan, the Magnificent Mile and the John Hancock Center are all just a few blocks east of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, too.
