One-Night Stay for Two Valid Sunday–Thursday at ACME Hotel Company in Chicago

Give as a Gift

Tech-Savvy Boutique Hotel in Downtown Chicago

Chicago's River North neighborhood is one of the city's trendiest, lined with art galleries, dance clubs, and Top Chef-run restaurants. It's a fitting locale for the new ACME Hotel Company, a boutique hotel that emphasizes style just as much as substance. ACME opened in May, following an extensive renovation that outfitted the building with the latest technology, including smart TVs and ultrafast 100 MB–bandwidth WiFi. Its decor is just as cutting edge— low-sitting, bold-colored furniture and canvas wall art create a modern, minimalist aesthetic. Other design touches reinforce the hotel's hipness: wood beams frame the domed entry; bright red LED lips decorate the bathroom mirrors; and a fence, rather than a wall, demarcates the onsite fitness center.

Guest rooms are furnished with internet-ready, 46-inch TVs that allow you to upload and watch your own videos, and hook it up to Apples and PCs to become a laptop monitor. Standard king rooms’ space-saving layouts feature tucked-away ottomans and an open closet. Alternatively, king suites are nearly twice the size and include two TVs, a Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin wireless audio system, and separate seating area with views of the Chicago skyline.

Chicago's River North: World-Class Art Galleries Steps from Historic Commercial Center

In the 1960s, artists such as Jim Nutt started Chicago Imagists, a surrealist movement detached from New York art trends. Ever since, Chicago has been central to the international art world. The city's River North neighborhood, where ACME Hotel Company is situated, is home to the city's most concentrated cluster of galleries. Century-old, red brick warehouses now house lofty exhibition spaces, each specializing in distinct art styles ranging from modern American art to European Impressionism.

River North is also where you'll find some of the city's trendiest restaurants, all within easy reach of the Loop, Chicago's historic commercial center and the country’s second-largest business district. Skyscrapers loom large here, including the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and the Chicago Board of Trade. This part of town is also home to award-winning waterfront parks and a glitzy theater district.

Head to the Loop's Art Institute of Chicago for its gargantuan collection of artwork: everything from marble busts and sarcophagi to modern masterpieces such as Grant Wood's American Gothic. The Loop itself is also lined with a spectacular array of public art, including outdoor sculptures from Picasso and Joan Miro, and pointillist hopscotch grids.

The rooms were a little small and we didn't have a view, but it was a great little spot. Our room had fun red glowing lips, and a Alexa in there. Coffee was dropped at our door every morning as well from the shop downstairs which was delicious!!! Definitely would do again....
