Gilded in the Gold Coast | Ambassador Chicago

Ambassador Chicago | Chicago, Illinois

THE VIBE
Located in the iconic Gold Coast neighborhood, famed Ambassador Chicago has been a destination for celebrities, fashion icons, politicians and international travelers since the 1920’s. It’s been refreshed, rebranded and has a renewed focus on its local Chicagoans. The hotel’s relaxed yet sleek lobby opens its doors to the vibrant energy of the creative class, complimenting Ambassador Chicago‘scontemporary and chic vibe.

THE LOOK
Gold design details, art-deco flourishes and modern finishes make this property a real standout. The design is thoughtful in that it celebrates Chicago’s past and the hotel’s legacy as a favored haunt for the Rat Pack which is reflected in the original crown moldings, original mail-shoots many other architectural details

THE SLEEP
The 285 guestrooms are gracious in size, individually furnished with taste and functionality. 300 thread count linens, plush crisp white duvets and furry accent pillows make rooms feel like a more hip and streamlined version of your own bedroom.

THE TASTE
Famed Chicago restaurant entrepreneur Rich Melman has acquired the hotel’s iconic Pump Room and transformed it into Booth One. The restaurant specializes in traditional American fare with a contemporary twist. Think Parker House rolls, beef wellington, seafood platters, and cheesecake all complimented by classic cocktails and champagne.

THE FEEL
Ambassador Chicago’s state-of-the-art fitness center is open 24/7 (convenient for that late night indulgence in some traditional deep-dish pizza). Minutes from the hotel are beautiful paths which hug Lake Michigan and offer views of the city’s stunning skyline. In-room, enjoy luxe Maison Margiela bath products and plush robes.

THE LOCALE
The 3 Arts Club Cafe inside the Restoration Hardware flagship store is a MUST for anyone staying at Ambassador Chicago as it is located just a short 2 min walk away. Great food inside an ornate, airy gallery? Who can say no to that.

THE WOW
Sit back, sip and stay awhile – The Library.  Located in Ambassador Chicago’s lobby, this public area is as unique as the hotel itself. By day, read or work at the communal table and enjoy an artisan coffee or fresh pastry. By night, the room transforms into a happening lounge offering a full bar, domestic and international bottled beers, a great international selection of wines, specialty cocktails, and small-plated food.
