Located in the iconic Gold Coast neighborhood, famed Ambassador Chicago has been a destination for celebrities, fashion icons, politicians, and international travelers since the 1920s. 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‘s contemporary and chic vibe.
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 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.
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 complemented by classic cocktails and champagne.
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 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.
Sit back, sip and stay awhile at 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.
