This historic Congress Plaza Hotel is located in downtown on Michigan Avenue, Chicago's premier shopping and dining area known as the Miracle Mile.
Stepping into the lobby from the Miracle Mile transports you back to the heyday of big business in Chicago. The presence of major players from the city's past and present linger like ghosts. The rich artwork and deep leather furnishings throughout give Congress Plaza a true old world feel. Perhaps the hotel's greatest claim is its three gourmet restaurants, which have enjoyed a long reputation as staples in the Chicago food scene. The Plaza also features a state-of-the-art fitness center to burn off the calories from all that gourmet food.
The elegantly decorated guest rooms all offer beautiful views of Lake Michigan, high ceilings, the comforts of an oversized bathroom, premium cable television, coffee makers and hair dryers. In addition to the award-winning onsite restaurants, there are many nearby dining options on the Miracle Mile, such as Mercat a la Planxa, Buddy Guy's Legends and Tamarind, all less than a tenth of a mile from the Congress Plaza. World-class boutiques and shopping are just outside the door on Michigan Avenue, and the United Center and Chicago Sky sports arena are both under two and a half miles away.
