This is the 3rd time I have been to this hotel. Staying overnight once, but it is a must visit even if you do not stay overnight. The restaurant on top called "Cindy's" is fantastic. The outdoor overlook, looks right into the Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. The staff has class to match the hotel, but a Midwest humility that...

The CAA has been restored to its previous glory. What a treat to stay in such magnificent surroundings. And it's fun and lively, too. The common rooms are a sight to behold. The guest rooms are beautifully decorated, but a little small. Overall it's an excellent hotel.

Great location... in Downtown Chicago opposite Millennium Park. Rooms are well appointed but a little small, bathroom is small as well (no bathtub). The hotel has great in-house entertainment and has a nice vibe to it... good bars and lounges including a game room.

I stayed here for several days and this hotel is amazing! Fantastic place to be, with a beautiful lobby, I had a perfect room with a very good bed, very good bath room, everything extremely clean and new.

Nice place for drinks and dinner. If weather permits, Cindys will have the rooftop open for a great view. The Game Room is fun for a group, however chess kept the two of us busy for awhile. Great vibe. Wish we would have stayed here. Very cool place, it's a must!

The CAA is one of the finest establishments that I have stayed at. The associates are extremely friendly and a pure delight. Ben Nelson was extremely helpful and a pleasure to meet. I will never stay anywhere else in Chicago.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inside these warmly elegant quarters you will find a design aesthetic inspired by the athletic heritage of the building-yet with thoroughly contemporary amenities throughout. A sense of play is alive here, as well, in divining which artifacts are vintage and which are new-something to ponder as the crystal glasses and cocktail carafe beckon a good, icy stir. Victorian-inspired lighting, brass fixtures and ironwork recall Chicago's industrial heritage, while wooden gym ladders, smartly reimagined as a storage wall, are as likely to hold a flask as a vintage self-improvement manual. ... more   less
