Chicago recently celebrated its ranking as the best big city in the U.S. for the fifth year in a row. So, if you’re planning a trip to the Windy City, you might consider staying in the best hotel.
Earlier this month, Conde Nast Traveler shared the Best Hotels in the World: 2021 Readers' Choice Awards. It marks the 34th annual Readers; Choice Awards survey, which included responses from more than 800,000 participants.
One Chicago hotel ranks among the Top 50, Conde Nast Traveler shared. In fact, it cracked the Top 10, coming in at No. 8.
Here’s why Conde Nast Traveler says The Gwen, a luxury collection hotel on Michigan Avenue, stood out:
“The Gwen is named for Gwen Lux, a Chicago-born, pioneering female sculptor of the 20th century, and a fitting icon for the Chicago installment of Marriott’s Luxury Collection, which aims to make each hotel reflect the character of its place. The Gwen, located on the city’s famed Magnificent Mile and in the landmark McGraw-Hill building—with its 1928 facade wholly preserved—does just that. Art deco interiors with taupe- and gold-hued rooms emanate old-fashioned glamour and chic modernity all at once. The rooftop bar and restaurant, Upstairs at the Gwen, is buzzy as can be when the weather is nice, and your best shot for mingling with a crowd beyond the hotel’s typical guests on business travel.”
