We’re thrilled to announce the opening of the Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront. Reserve your stay and enjoy unparalleled luxury and exemplary service in the “Best Big City!”

Announcing an Opening Unlike Any Other!

Sonesta is proud to bring our distinctive unrivaled service and refined elegance to the Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront! With this exciting opening, we’re poised to bring our longstanding hotelier tradition to one of the world’s most scintillating capitals, voted the Best Big City for three years running by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine!


Destined for Greatness

Overlooking the Chicago River in the city’s Loop district and a short walk from Millennium Park, our stellar location puts you at the cultural epicenter of the Midwest, with all of downtown Chicago right outside your door. Like Condé Nast says, Chicago is your best bet for “impressive architecture, first-rate museums, brilliant chefs, and massive brewing scene.” The Magnificent Mile, home to upscale shopping and dining, is also just a few blocks away.

But you’ll also savor our extravagant interiors and the largest standard guest rooms in Chicago—334 luxurious rooms including 34 suites with fabulous river or city views. The classic hotel spirit endures in this decades-old building, steeped in legendary hospitality and fine touches that elevate your experience.

Unsurpassed Meeting and Event Space

State-of-the-art conference rooms with dazzling city views make your meeting or event a pleasure. Our 18 sophisticated venues total 16,000 square feet, refined and flexible settings for business gatherings, weddings, conferences and social and family events. And our outdoor Penthouse Terrace on the 39th floor provides a stunning space your attendees will never forget.

Food Is Art Comes to Chicago

The Sonesta passion for food shines through at the Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront! Our Food Is Art approach to dining infuses every dish at Hoyt’s American Tavern, where thoughtfully prepared meals feature the locally sourced ingredients for which the Midwest is renowned. And in keeping with our Liquid Art philosophy, our mixologists concoct unique artisan cocktails.
