Snacks and beer!!!
Just a part of the location hotel has no control over “... that train...!”
Clean and modern with a vintage feel.
No breakfast included. Place seems short staffed. Room was cramped.
When checking into the Robey, it was mentioned that we were there to celebrate my birthday. After about 30 minutes of getting settled into the room there was a knock on the door and it was the staff member who had checked us in. He was delivering a bottle of wine and birthday card to me. Little touches like that are so much appreciated. Would stay there every time i go to Chicago.
Occupying two landmark buildings in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, The Robey Chicago, a Member of Design Hotels, sits at the six-way intersection of Milwaukee, Damen, and North Avenues in the Northwest Tower known as the Coyote Building and the adjoining old Hollander Fireproof Warehouse.
The 89 guest rooms range from 215 to 675 square feet and offer amenities such as rooftop pool access and complimentary Wi-Fi. With an interior design described as minimally chic and industrially raw, to mimic the contrasting Art Deco and warehouse styles of the original buildings, the hotel is stunningly built with hardwood floors and walls of glass to contrast polished concrete and exposed brickwork. All 69 of the Tower Rooms in the Coyote Building offer king sized beds, apart from the Landmark Queen rooms, which feature queen sized beds. The 20 multi-bed Annex Loft rooms all offer a lounge area, a workspace, a bathroom with a shower, and city views.
The property lures curious gourmands with modern American cuisine at the Café Robey, and summer-inspired American dishes at Cabana Club, boasting a rooftop pool and terrace. Cocktails are served at The Up Room rooftop cocktail lounge, where guests can gaze out over Chicago’s ever-changing cityscape.
The Robey Chicago offers meeting facilities including the Panorama suite and bar, which offers a 180-degree view of Chicago’s ever-changing skyline and is well suited for more sober sophistication. Guests can also host events at Robey Hall, inside the old warehouse, a multifunctional event space epitomizing Chicago’s young entrepreneurial spirit.

Policies vary by room type and provider.
One of the key perks of The Robey Chicago hotel is its rooftop pool, which is open from May to September. Guests enjoy the privilege to beat the public to the curb and can lounge at the pool from 9:00 am on. At 11:00 am, the Cabana Club and kitchen opens for you to indulge in chilled drinks and snacks while enjoying the views.
Five different venues are available for you to choose from: The Lounge allows up to 80 people and is perfect for presentations or meetings. For more privacy and a corporate ambiance, the Boardroom teases with state-of-the-art A/V equipment and 156 sq ft. Robey Hall is the second biggest function room with 1,250 sq ft, a capacity for up to 100 people, and a clean and elegant atmosphere.
Avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot with the private parking lot of The Robey Chicago, a Member of Design Hotels located just a few steps away. For a daily fee of approximately $45, your vehicle awaits close by and you can remain flexible during your stay. Prior reservation of a spot or registry of your car is not necessary.
The Corner Suite in the tower building is set at the iconic rounded "snout" of the building that gives it its popular look. With the Corner Suite, you have stunning views over the streets on either side of the hotel and a 180° lookout over the Chicago skyline. Fans of industrial chic may prefer the Annex rooms as they have tailored designer furniture and are less pricy than the suites.
Chicago Midway International Airport is a 25m car ride from the hotel. If you come by car, take the I-55 North and I-90/I-94 West to reach the destination via the quickest route. With public transport, it will take about 50m to reach the hotel by taking first the Orange and then the Blue Line, exiting at Damen Station. Both driving yourself and taking public transportation are good and direct options from Chicago O’Hare International Airport. If you take the car, the I-90 East is your fast track to the iconic hotel, whereas the Blue Line serves as a direct connection to Damen Station in less than 40m.
If you love a perfect fusion of modernity and a historic setting, this 1929 building is the perfect location to stay. It originated as an office complex, but was redesigned to meet guests’ needs by dynamic architecture duo Marc Merckx Interiors and Nicolas Schuybroek Architects. The annex stems from 1905 and its style was incorporated in the overall design. (Prices checked 04/06/19).
