The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago, Illinois is arguably the most iconic place to stay in a city filled with several high quality hotels. It is known not only for its cozy and well-furnished rooms, but also for its exemplary customer service.

There are a variety of room options to select from including standard rooms with lake or city views, suites as well as complete apartment-style housing. The standard rooms are nearly 400 square feet and include marble bathrooms. The suites are offered in three different varieties: Navy Pier (2 bedroom), Ambassador or Presidential-style. One and two bedroom apartments are between 1,300 and 1,750 square feet. Most rooms feature breathtaking views of Chicago.

The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago has four different dining options. All of them are upscale and highly acknowledged. The Torali (Italian steakhouse) is distinctively different from the Cafe yet equally enjoyable. The Torali bar offers an indoor, main floor seating area along with a rooftop section that overlooks the "Magnificent Mile".

Since many travel to Chicago for business the hotel features a gigantic meeting space. The conference center is over 25,000 square feet and can support meetings of up to 1,200 people. It provides on-site visual and audio equipment, as well as staff that can put together a presentation for your organization. Weddings are also hosted at the massive facility.

Additional amenities at the hotel include high speed internet, a large fitness center, spa treatment and more. In-room features include thick terry bathrobes and slippers, room service, built-in safe, down duvets and pillows on the bedding, and Nespresso coffee machines.
