Must See

Located just west of Chicago's downtown, Chicago Union Station is an iconic beaux-arts train station and the fourth busiest in the country. Dating back to the early 20th century, Chicago Union Station's Great Hall is worth a glimpse. Restored to its original grandeur in 2019, this space has been the backdrop of many popular films and important events.

What's New

Catch an event at the United Center, a state-of-the-art arena, when visiting Chicago. Throughout the year, live entertainment fans will be able to see comedy shows, as well as performances by some of the biggest names in pop and rock. Home to two professional sports teams, sports buffs can cheer on the Chicago Bulls or the Chicago Blackhawks as they enjoy the great adrenaline-filled atmosphere.


Chicago and the nearby suburbs are home to an array of nationally-ranked universities. The University of Illinois Chicago is mere steps away from our hotel and the second campus established under the University of Illinois system. Be sure to stroll through Northwestern University and admire the city from the Lakefill or the University of Chicago where President Obama was a lecturer for 12 years.

Must Do

There are countless things to do in the West Loop, but exploring the area's amazing food scene is a must for all. Indulge in delectable food when staying at our hotel since you'll be just steps away from Randolph Street, home to "Restaurant Row." Make sure to grab some grub when strolling through Fulton Market District or delight in moussaka, dolmades, or baklava when visiting Greektown.

Don't Go Home Without

In the morning, head to the Shedd Aquarium or Adler Planetarium before strolling through Grant Park and admiring Buckingham Fountain. Later, walk through Millennium Park as you snack on Garret Popcorn before hopping on an architectural boat tour or getting some retail therapy on the Magnificent Mile. These are just some of the fun things to do near Crowne Plaza Chicago West Loop.
