What do we love about Chicago?

  • Even during the coldest months, it’s worth bundling up and exploring Chicago on foot. Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront is the perfect place to start your stroll along the famed Chicago River, or in warmer months, to hop on a boat for the city’s beloved architectural tours. If you’re looking for a walk on the beach, Lake Michigan and its vast beauty await. For green space and art, head to Millennium Park.
  • Chicago has a rich history and connection to the arts. The Art Institute of Chicago is a must-visit when in town, but you can find art just about anywhere you look in the city’s parks and famous buildings.
  • Chicago is family-friendly! Add the amusements and entertainment of Navy Pier and a visit to Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium to your family fun itinerary.
  • Chicago is for foodies! Whether you’re craving the city’s dressed up hot dogs or deep dish pizza or you’re up for a high-end steakhouse celebrating the bounty of Midwestern farms, you’ll find plenty to eat in Chicago. With so many different cultural influences, Chicago dining can also be like a trip around the world. Visit Greek Town for authentic tavernas or take in the vibrant culture and food of Pilsen, where a rich Latino background can be found.
  • Shop til you drop! Any visit to Chicago should include a stroll down the Magnificent Mile to browse its glittering storefronts and wide variety of retailers.
