Help Us Name Chicago's Hippest Hotels


We're planning our second annual list of Chicago's Hippest Hotels later this year, and we want your recommendations. Here are the 16 we named last year (Part I and Part II). But so many new, hip contenders have entered the fray, like the ultra-luxury Langham, Starwood's Aloft, and Thompson Chicago, which features Paul Kahan's Nico. Which are your favorites? What do you like about them? Do suggest a different order from last year's rankings? Send comments about cool design, food, mood, and scene to Write anonymously, or let us know if you want your name used. Stay tuned for our rankings!
