At The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago, the glittering skyscrapers of the Magnificent Mile and the shimmering waters of Lake Michigan tempt from down below. Yet at the top of the Water Tower Place, away from the hum of the city, our luxury downtown hotel provides an equally tempting retreat. Set in the Windy City’s coveted Gold Coast district, The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago’s 434 guest rooms and suites each offer extra-large picture windows with stunning views, spacious layouts and unimposing elegance. You can also enjoy the view from our seasonal rooftop lounge, The dec, or in the Art Deco dining room at deca, serving brasserie-inspired dishes based on fresh, local ingredients. Dining is not the only opportunity for indulgence; treat yourself to a day at the spa, a yoga or Pilates class or quiet laps in the indoor pool. Our secluded downtown setting is also the perfect place for a wedding or meeting, with magnificent event spaces, professional planners and creative catering.
