Local Tips

Must See

Flowers may be in bloom at the Botanic Garden during the spring and summer, but in winter months holiday lights and ice skaters also grace these lovely grounds near Chicago. Our North Shore hotel is just 10 miles away from this year-round attraction.

What's New

When you make your Chicago airport and hotel reservations, be sure to check the event calendar of the Allstate Concert Arena as well. There are always new shows being announced, so check and see if your trip coincides with a concert by your favorite band.


You won't find a lack of restaurants if you're hungry when arriving from or departing to the Chicago airport. Our hotel is surrounded by great eateries so you should explore the local cuisine after you've enjoyed the specialties at The Chicago2875 Restaurant.

Must Do

If you have the chance, visit Millennium Park and see a concert, an art show, the interactive fountain and beautifully designed gardens and sculptures. This park is 23 miles from our Chicago North Shore hotel and easily accessible by car, bus and train.

Don't Go Home Without

You can't leave the Northbrook area without indulging in a slice or two of delicious, Chicago-style pizza. This iconic food item is a must-have, so don't miss out because your local grocery store's frozen pizzas have nothing on a fresh-baked Chicago pie.
