Set in the Loop, Chicago Athletic Association is an iconic 4-star hotel in downtown Chicago. Founded in 1890 by a collection of American businessmen including names like A.G. Spalding, Marshall Field and Cyrus McCormick, originally Chicago Athletic Association was a private men's athletic club. Women were invited as guests only during gala dinners and concerts. Maybe you don’t know that when William Wrigley, famous member of the CAA, bought the Chicago Cubs in 1915, the baseball team adopted the crest of the club as its logo. Over the years, until its closure in 2007, the club attracted big names of the sport like the five-time Olympic gold medallist Johnny Weissmuller, one of the world's fastest swimmers in history. Converted it into a luxury hotel, sleeping at the Chicago Athletic Association will make you feel part of the history of the Windy City. Undoubtedly, it is one of the finest hotels of the city embellished by historic architectural details, from the elegant ballroom with 19th century stained glass windows and the grand marble staircase to the Venetian gothic façade. All elegant rooms and suites feature a very unique design combining vintage athletic elements with contemporary comforts such as a 42 inch flat-screen cable TV, free Wi-Fi access, gourmet mini-bar and Carrara marble bathrooms. Chicago Athletic Association has different dining options: at the exclusive retro-style Cherry Circle Room, you can savour fine regional classics while Cindy’s rooftop terrace, restaurant and bar serves a delicious cuisine made with seasonal ingredients. From the open-air terrace of Cindy's you can enjoy an incredible view over the Millennium Park. The popular Milk Room, which was used as a speakeasy during Prohibition-era, is the right place to sip vintage spirits, whiskies and delicious cocktails. If you are hungering for burgers, hot dogs, shakes and good beers, go to Shake Shack. If you don't feel like leaving the cosy of your room, a 24-hour in-room dining service is available. For sport enthusiasts the hotel has a modern fitness centre open 24 hours a day and an indoor bocce ball court. On request, you can arrange private group sessions with a personal trainer.
