Located a few blocks northwest of The Magnificent Mile in the Gold Coast area, Claridge House appeals to vacationers who desire a neighborhood feel without straying too far from downtown Chicago's amenities. Though you could easily spend your entire stay visiting the nearby eateries and beaches, travelers recommend saving time for a drink or meal in the lobby restaurant, Juniper Spirits & Oysters. The hotel also houses fitness and business centers and a spa that offers facials, nail services and waxing treatments. After a busy day on or off the property, retreat to your guest room or suite. All 165 pet-friendly accommodations feature neutral color schemes and come outfitted with complimentary Wi-Fi access, pillow-top beds, minifridges, coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. Select rooms also boast gas fireplaces, while suites offer separate living areas and an additional bathroom.
