Exploring day use hotels in Chicago and wondering what to do during your downtime? Fear not, friend—we’re here to help!
Quintessential Things to Complement Your Chicago Day Hotel Experience
Architecture - From the 110-story Willis *cough* Sears Tower (at one time the world’s largest skyscraper) to the Merchandise Mart, there’s no shortage of beautiful creations to gawk at in Chicago. An architecture tour or a river taxi ride to Chinatown syncs with a Chicago dayroom quite well.
Food - From eating an everything-but-ketchup hot dog to slamming your face into a pile of Pequod’s deep dish pizza or maybe one of those fine-dining 12-course meals, a Chicago day hotel serves as a perfect place to nap off the food or prepare for the ultimate foodie experience.
Museums - Chicago offers world-class museums in science, history, astronomy, culture, sports, and wildlife. Whether you spend your day entranced at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry, or at Lincoln Park Zoo—one of the last free zoos in the country!
Sports - A city that Michael Jordan and Walter Payton called home has kept its passion through the years. Relax in your Chicago day use hotel room and then catch a game in any of the professional sports leagues. We vote a night game at Wrigley.
