Amount authorized at this property: $100.00 USD per night
  • Please note that if the owner of the credit card we have on file will not be present at check in, the person checking in at the hotel will need to provide their own credit card. If you need to make arrangements to prepay your stay (either for yourself or for someone else), please contact us immediately and we will forward you a Credit Card Authorization Form as hotels usually require a minimum of 7 days processing time.

Hotel Amenities

  • Cherry Circle
  • Cindy’s
  • Game Room


There’s plenty of history in the Venetian Gothic landmark that houses one of Chicago’s coolest boutique hotels. While the rooms and suites remain fairly minimalist in style, the building's restaurants and social spaces have been restored with a classic elegance. 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.


  • The design, which manages to incorporate both vintage and modern elements
  • Its great location in The Loop, directly across the street from Millennium Park
  • Consulting with the resident Games Master to brush up on our bocce rules before playing in the hotel’s indoor Game Room
  • The menu in the Cherry Circle Room is based on the original from the 1890’s and features roasted leg of lamb and prime rib from the table-side carvery
  • Warming up by the outdoor fire pits on the rooftop terrace, with an amazing view of the city and park
  • For the causal diners you will find a Shake Shack on the main floor, they will even send it up to your room for you
