The LaSalle Chicago, Autograph Collection

Modern art deco elegance in the Second City

Soaring 21 stories above the commotion of the Windy City’s Financial District, The LaSalle Chicago, Autograph Collection has a stellar view of things. From the new hotel’s vantage point, it could see that the city’s guests were looking for an in-town stay in the neighborhood that didn’t compromise on sophistication. So, this meticulous stunner wrapped itself in Calacatta marble, Frette linens and Egyptian rugs.

The property knew Chicago locals and visitors have high culinary expectations come dinnertime, so it cooked up a modern steakhouse restaurant with an exhibition-style kitchen. And you can rest assured The LaSalle Chicago heard all the bickering about properties being too far from area landmarks, which is why walks to the Art Institute of Chicago, the Willis Tower and Millennium Park take less than 15 minutes from your room.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Designed by renowned Chicago architect Daniel Burnham (among his many accomplishments, he transformed Chicago into the “White City” for the 1893 World’s Fair — the Museum of Science & Industry is the last-remaining grand white structure from the period), the 208 South LaSalle Street building housing this hotel is a 100-year-old-plus Classical Revival wonder. The massive former bank was once the talk of the town, as was its price tag. At the time of its completion in 1914, the skyscraper was the most expensive ever built in the city.
  • A sense of timeless art deco elegance fills these halls. Marble-draped fireplaces and brown leather chairs accentuate public spaces. Starburst mirrors and board-and-batten paneling punctuate the stylish, inviting 230-plus rooms.
  • The Presidential Suite is the luxury hotel’s 1,684-square-foot statement piece, complete with a full kitchen, butler pantry, 169-square-foot primary bathroom and a private study.
  • An exclusive-dinner-club feel simmers in Grill on 21. But rather than allow dark woods and metal-and-glass chandeliers to tell the whole story, the kitchen lets bone-in ribeye, Faroe Island salmon, and lobster Thermidor do most of the talking.
  • Sporting dark wood walls with gold touches, wood floors and dim lighting, the cozy, chic library is a place to gather with a drink — especially during Chicago’s snow-filled winters, when the impressive white marble fireplace lights up.

Things to Know

  • The LaSalle Chicago partners with the Luxxe | Honor natural product line and wellness studio for curated yoga classes and in-room videos.
  • If you need a hand to help you unwind, take the elevator down to the spa at sister property JW Marriott Chicago, a hotel using the bottom 12 floors of the same building. There’s even a treatment specially designed for the hotel’s guests called the LaSalle Experience, a 25-minute body exfoliation followed by a soothing 50-minute massage.
  • Not that you’ll want to leave the Chicago hotel, but with the Willis Tower, Chicago Theater District and Buckingham Fountain within walking distance, opportunities to explore won’t come any easier.
