We had a very nice stay. Central location was a plus if you want to be downtown. Our rooms were not big, but the beds were big and very comfortable. The bathroom is a little small and the views aren't spectacular, but, what do you expect in downtown Chicago. The fitness center and spa were fabulous so don't miss those....

I've stayed at the Union League a number of times and gave it high marks. This time, however, was different. Too many lapses in attention to detail to ignore. First, the desk lamp did not work. Second, there were so many wires coming from the only nearby plug, I couldn't figure out whether the lamp plug was to blame or...

I stayed at the Union League club over the course of 4 days while traveling for business in The Loop. The hotel room I stayed in was clean and complimentary WiFi was also provided although it was extremely slow. I slept well since it was quiet when I was there, meaning there were no major events in the functional areas....

I changed hotels this year for the conference I attend, and chose the Union League Hotel, in part because I have reciprocal membership. I had an idea of what to expect: traditional decor and service, which was what I got. I didn't have a refrigerator in my room, and was provided one as soon as I asked, which was nice....

Worst hotel experience ever. If you want to stay high on 2:30 am, this is the place. Otherwise if you want a good sleep, two words: stay away. Let's face it: it is an old place and it holds events. I can clearly hear every single talk in the hallway. That is why I was waken up by crazy people...

Stuffy, staid, and stodgy. This is not to be compared to an upscale hotel. I used a reciprocity arrangement since I am a member at The Union League, Philadelphia. The Philadelphia club is ranked the #1 city club in the nation and far outshines the Chicago club in so many ways from accommodations, to atmosphere, to food, to service!

Thanks to age and intrigued, learning to seek out our country's great turn of the century clubs. And this one's a beauty. A great mixture of history, Americana and superior service. Can't wait to return and try others. Plus there's a one-of-a kind Guy Buffet painting of the main ballroom greets you at the registration desk. We love Guy's work.

Beautiful art collections and woodwork; outstanding service in all regards from the cleanliness of the hotel room to the restaurants and bars. Located within walking distance of Union Station, Willis Tower, Lake Michigan, shopping, and fabulous restaurants. Can't go wrong with...

My Chicago office is less than 2 blocks away, so the Union Club is easy to get to from O'Hare (blue line to Jackson) and then to my Office.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

“Choose a room on a high floor. I didn't hear any of the noise other people have talked about.”

“Ask for the newly renovated rooms without connecting space as TV and conversations/partying noise travels and is quite disturbing. If you object to using a service/ staging /delivery entrance when not attired to the dress code, you will feel like a 2nd class citizen being directed to the back door when wearing sneakers for touring, shorts after labor day, or jeans except on weekends.”
