The Congress Plaza Hotel, a historic Chicago hotel on Michigan Avenue, was originally designed and built to accommodate visitors to the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, and over the years has catered to our nation's Presidents, foreign dignitaries, opera performers, stage and movie celebrities, business travelers, and a multitude of conventions. Located on a picturesque setting on Michigan Avenue, adjacent to Grant Park, this hotel is ideal for visitors wanting a taste of Chicago.
The guestrooms and suites of the Congress Plaza Hotel are truly spacious by today's standards, and many overlook the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan. Over half of our 850-room downtown Chicago accommodations have multiple bedding, perfect for families or extra occupants. Requests for high floors, low floors, connecting rooms, or even for more closet space, can all be accommodated at our hotel.
In addition to in-room amenities including complimentary WiFi, hair dryers, coffee makers and cable television with premium channels, the property itself features a 24-hour exercise facility, game room, room service, valet parking and dry cleaning as well as a gift shop and barber shop.
