Discover A Downtown Chicago Hotel

The Royal Sonesta Chicago Downtown brings the city a fresh perspective on the urban travel experience. Stroll the pavilion at Millennium Park, explore artsy River North, or see a show at the magnificent Chicago Theater.

All guest rooms and suites feature elements reimagined for the modern traveler, from multipurpose dining spaces to Peloton bikes. Subtle architectural details and artwork create a residential feel throughout, drawing inspiration from the arresting skyline and serene river reflected against the hotel’s glass facade.

There’s ample flexible meeting space and Wi-Fi to help you stay productive, a full range of amenities and facilities designed to make your stay comfortable and seamless. And when it’s time to unwind, catch a workout in the fitness center or head over to Hoyt’s American Tavern for a drink and a thoughtfully prepared meal.
