About Chicago

To many, Chicago is best known for its architecture and impressive landmarks. The Chicago Water Tower, the 100-story John Hancock Center, and many museums are wonders to behold. Its location on the shores of Lake Michigan means the sights include not only the impressive city skyline but also natural views unlike any other. The Navy Pier and its famous Centennial Ferris Wheel offer a birds-eye view of the watersports playground below. Or, get the best of both worlds by taking a cruise along Lake Shore Drive with the city on one side and the lake on the other.


You'll never find yourself wanting for things to do when you visit Chicago. Foodies love the cuisine – from deep-dish pizza and soul food to fine dining and everything in between. Visit Grant Park for its effortless joining of art and nature, the Magnificent Mile for a luxe shopping and dining experience, and the city's world-class museums, zoos, and aquariums as a treat for the whole family.


Chicago boasts one of the world's best transport systems, so getting around is a breeze. Their elevated rail line (The 'L') doubles as an easy way to get around and a great way to see the city. There are also more than 100 bus routes. Plentiful bike lanes cater to cyclists, and of course, there are large fleets of taxis and rideshare drivers. If you plan to get out of the city, renting a car is a breeze.


This ease of movement will help you check out many of Chicago's lively neighborhoods. The South Loop offers hip nightclubs, restaurants, and hotels. River North is well known for its fine dining, nightlife and beautiful river walk. Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, Wrigleyville, and Hyde Park offer a wide variety of sights and scenes.


With so many options, where you'll stay in Chicago really depends on what you want! Triphop can help you find the perfect Chicago hotel at the absolute best price. Magnificent Mile's four and five-star hotels offer the ultimate in luxury. Historic hotels like the Staypineapple (formerly the Alise) and The Chicago Athletic Association set the mood for exploring the city's traditional architecture. Affordable lodging options are plentiful as well.


For those looking for a good deal on Chicago hotels, you'll actually want to avoid the middle of the summer. With its sweltering heat and huge crowds, savvy travelers often avoid this season in favor of late spring and early fall. Comfortable temperatures and lower hotel rates make April-May and September-October excellent times to visit.


In a country full of world-famous cities, Chicago remains a favorite among vacationers. The birthplace of legendary music, art, architecture, dishes, and more, The Windy City is a joy to discover.

Luxury hotels in Chicago

The Godfrey Hotel Chicago.4.5-star


Very Good

.2194 reviews

Overall great experience! Very happy with the room and location. I just wish the parking was on contrast to the room price. It does not make sense that the parking for your car cost %80 of the room price, not even in downtown Chicago. Great views. The bar was cool with some outdoor " igloos". I would go back again

Four Seasons Chicago.5-star



.857 reviews

Good experience overall, but the staff could be more attentive at the pool. I was pleased with the room service, and the way my clothes were done. I'd return.

Park Hyatt - Chicago.5-star



.623 reviews

Favorite hotel we have ever stayed at! We stayed here for Christmas, and the hotel was pretty quiet since it was Christmas time. This hotel is incredible, super clean, fancy, and has AMAZING EMPLOYEES! Every employee is VERY friendly and helpful at all times! We had our young kids with us and all of the employees went above and beyond to make the kids feel like royalty. From bringing them cookies for no reason, to giving them robes to wear after swimming in the pool, and even bringing out the hotel dog for the kids to pet - just anything you could imagine - they all went above and beyond. Truly our favorite hotel we have ever stayed at! It will be our must stay at hotel for all future Chicago visits! It made our Christmas very special and Magical!

Motel 6 Elk Grove Village - O'Hare

Average price $50/night



.1382 reviews

Comfortable for my needs (I was there to take a medical licensing exam). Quiet throughout the night, so I was lucky enough to get two consecutive good nights' rest. Area didn't feel dangerous. I ate at the Subway next door and at the Dunkin' Donuts across the intersection, although in the mornings there was free coffee in the lobby. Staff were friendly and room was very clean including soap and towels, although some shampoo would be my only additional suggestion. Excellent value considering what I paid for three nights' stay.

Travelodge by Wyndham Downtown Chicago

Average price $90/night

Nice staff. The lobby is very modern, but you can tell the building is old (which I find charming). You notice the character when you enter the regular floors and the room. I'm generally grossed out by hotels, but I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the room/beds/bathroom was! There is a little noise from the train running next to it, but the hotel itself was very quiet. Good price, too!
