Chicago Athletic Association

There’s plenty of history in the Venetian Gothic landmark that houses one of Chicago’s coolest boutique hotels. The rooms and suites are beautifully adorned, melding the building’s restored history with classic elegance. And the gracious, welcoming staff at Chicago Athletic Association are simply the icing on the cake, taking obvious pride in what they do and where they do it.

What We Love

  • The design, which manages to incorporate some athletic club vintage touches and make it work
  • Its great location in The Loop – across from Millennium Park and a block away from the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Symphony Center
  • Sipping on a local craft beer and consulting with the resident Games Master to brush up on our bocce rules before playing it in the hotel’s indoor Game Room
  • Ordering the roasted leg of lamb or prime rib from the tableside carvery at the Cherry Circle Room restaurant, with a full menu based on the original 1890s menus of the Chicago Athletic Association
  • Warming up by the outdoor fire pits on the rooftop terrace, with a classic cocktail in hand, and looking out over the city

Perks with Magellan

  • Founders Fee waived


There’s no better spot to look out over the Chicago skyline and Millennium Park than at Cindy’s, the Chicago Athletic Association’s rooftop restaurant and open-air terrace. Whether in for a cocktail or dinner, the inspired, seasonal creations in a relaxed atmosphere are sure to please.

Cherry Circle

Inspired by the historic dishes created when Chicago Athletic Association was a men’s club, Cherry Circle’s menu items can be traced back over the last century as classics that have stood the test of time.

Game Room

This lounge harkens back to the era of speakeasies, offering classic cocktails in a warm, inviting environment. Take part in a game of billiards, bocce or shuffleboard and revel in the timeless merry-making to be had in the space.
