Overview

With its neon-red sign standing out against the Chicago skyline, its Italianate, vaulted ceilings and glimmering Gold Room banqueting hall, the Congress Plaza Hotel makes an imposing first impression. Once known as the Home of Presidents due to its popularity with both Roosevelts, Woodrow Wilson and Richard Nixon, it s been operating since 1893. Valet dry-cleaning and barber services of yesteryear sit side-by-side with modern amenities like audio-visual tech for business meetings and a 24-hour fitness center, while eating options here are globally diverse (Rafael s Steakhouse) and come straight from the griddle in the morning (Gazebo Restaurant). In the evenings, settle back in a leather-back armchair with a bourbon or take up a challenge at the darts board in the Congress Lounge, where both business users and vacationers gather for some much-needed R n R.
