Situated directly above Water Tower Place, the Ritz-Carlton has an Art Nouveau—inspired lobby with a dramatic marble fountain and wall-to-wall windows framing views of the city below. Impressive vistas are also a major feature of the 435 guest rooms, which overlook either Lake Michigan or the Magnificent Mile. Despite its luxury status, the hotel is also family-friendly: the chef hosts daily cookie-baking sessions, while a “candy man” travels room to room with a cart of complimentary sweets. Additional amenities include a spa, an indoor pool, and the Deca Restaurant + Bar, which serves regional cuisine.

Room to Book:

Avoid south-facing rooms that overlook the adjacent fire station—the truck sirens are audible and make sleeping difficult.

Insider Tip:

If you’re traveling with kids, make sure to check out the Water Tower Place mall, which has both a Lego store and an American Girl store.
