Top Tier Tower
What it is
A 287 room, 24-suite tower designed by Pierre Yves Rochon edging Michigan Avenue, with a rooftop bar, bourbon-inspired restaurant, high-tech gym and soaring atrium.
What it isn't
A Luddite. Guests love using the Conrad Concierge app, which allows them to do everything from ping room service to schedule wake up calls.
What we think
When guests of Conrad Chicago rave that it feels “like home,” they’re not kidding. Each and every room is fitted with a Nespresso coffee maker, 65-inch HDTV, Bluetooth speakers, and bathrobe for lounging the day away. (Unlike home, you’re treated to 24/7 housekeeping here). Starter rooms are ginormous at 400 square feet; upgrade to a Corner Suite for a 620-square-foot floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows that peep out on the surrounding cityscape. Or get the full #treatyoself spa experience with the Royal Suite, which has a deep soaking tub overlooking the glass walled view—not to mention 1,160-square-feet of space, including a separate living room and powder bath.
You're here because
Gratis perks business travelers love include laundry pressing, luggage storage, and loaner in-room printers...handy when you have back-to-back Zoom calls.
Baptiste & Bottle, the hotel’s bourbon-inspired restaurant, is thronged with Chicagoans. One bite of your roasted Amish chicken with charred broccoli and you can see why. Smiling, you nod to the waiter: “A tasting flight of local bourbons, please!” It’s time to settle in for the night.
