Celebration is always in the air at our painstakingly-restored 1893 Venetian Gothic hotel with its postcard views and historic venues. There’s no better Chicago backdrop to launch your life story with the one you love most.

Built in 1893 to coincide with the World’s Fair in Chicago, this building was originally home to its namesake elite athletic and social club, one of Chicago’s most beloved landmarks. It has been transformed into a uniquely inspired boutique hotel as an iconic destination for travelers and locals alike.

The Chicago Athletic Association hotel, part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt, offers 17,000 square feet of iconic spaces that effortlessly meld past with present. Inside this 1890s monument that overlooks Millennium Park, you'll find plenty of room to spread out with 241 guest rooms & suites, 7 unique event spaces, and 7 award-winning bars and restaurants. At every corner, restorers and designers married original stained glass windows, mantels with extraordinary bas-relief wood carvings, and restored marble staircases with contemporary sophistication.

    We met with Budi and he was extremely friendly and gave a great tour of the venue. We had all of our questions answered and was able to put a week hold on our preferred date. The venue is BEAUTIFUL and we cannot wait to continue planning our wedding with him!
