Accommodations Steps from Michigan Avenue

Ask any Chicagoan about where to find the Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park, and you might get a raised eyebrow in response. That’s because around town, the huge, mirrored, kidney-shaped icon is better known as “The Bean.” In the work’s curving, seamless surface, you can see a reflection of the city skyline behind you. After snapping some pictures, turn around for a wide-open shot of Michigan Avenue.

Just a block west of this fixture is The Silversmith Hotel & Suites, a TripAdvisor 2013 Certificate of Excellence winner that’s ideally situated for an action-packed vacation in Chicago’s Loop. Fodor’s called the historic, 19th-century hotel “perfect for art and theater lovers,” and with good reason: it’s just a few blocks from the Art Institute of Chicago and the theater district.

A doorman welcomes guests to the hotel, which is tucked into a row of historic buildings on Wabash Avenue. Inside, elegant rooms and suites feature 12-foot ceilings, free WiFi, and Arts and Crafts–style decor. There’s around the clock staff that can help make reservations at the city’s best restaurants or acquire last-minute show tickets. An onsite gym stays open all night, allowing for post-deep-dish-pizza workouts.

Chicago's Loop: Historic Commercial Center with World-Class Museums and Parks

The Loop—a name that reflects the shape formed by the elevated train tracks that form its perimeter—is Chicago's historic commercial center and the country’s second-largest business district. Skyscrapers such as the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and the Chicago Board of Trade loom large here, overlooking award-winning waterfront parks, a glitzy theater district, and some of the world’s finest art collections.

About three blocks from the hotel you can find the Art Institute of Chicago, whose gargantuan collection covers everything from marble busts and sarcophagi to modern masterpieces such as Edward Hopper's Nighthawks and Grant Wood's American Gothic. The Loop itself boasts a spectacular array of public artwork, including outdoor sculptures from Picasso and Joan Miró and pointillist hopscotch grids.

Grant Park, known affectionately as "Chicago's front yard," occupies more than 300 acres along the lake just east of the Loop. Modeled after the gardens at Versailles, the park is dotted with several impressive attractions, including Buckingham Fountain, the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and Adler Planetarium. Its stunning vistas and sheer size have made Grant Park the site of many notable events, including Barack Obama’s 2008 victory speech and the Lollapalooza music festival, which takes place here every summer.
