Chicago Athletic Association Hotel

I’ve travel to Chicago many times, I love the architecture the vibe and the food of this city. On my last trip I stayed at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel and I simply loved it.

Located on Michigan right in front of the ”Bean” it’s a great location close to the Magnificent Mile, different museum and 10 drive away from the United Center  if you’re into hockey or basketball.

The décor of this hotel is beautiful and you I really enjoyed that they kept to their origins to keep this place a classic. The Chicago Athletic Association was founded in 1890 by some of Chicago’s wealthiest men, like Marshall Field, Cyrus McCormick and A.G. Spalding, as in the sporting goods company, and also a co-founder baseball’s National League. But William Wrigley, you may recognize his name from a small “field” on the North Side, was also a member. He bought the Cubs in 1915 and the team adopted the CAA’s crest as its logo, forever binding the two properties.

Staff is super friendly and go out of their way to help you out and make sure you have a pleasant stay.
