Authentically Chicago, With a Creative Soul

Named one of the Best Hotels in Chicago 2016 by Travel + Leisure, The Gwen is located on the Magnificent Mile in the landmark McGraw-Hill Building near all of the things to do in Chicago.

The reimagined icon is adorned with panels created in 1929 by sculptress Gwen Lux, the hotel’s namesake. Embracing her artistic spirit, the 300-room hotel, featuring 34 suites, also celebrates the energy and glamour of Chicago in the 1930s.

Centrally located in Chicago and close to every cultural and entertainment venue as well as upscale restaurants. All staff was cordial and engaging. Free hi-speed Internet, flat screen TV with surround sound...yay for that! A treat in Chicago. Beds are cozy like home :-) A new interior design is underway so I can only image The Gwen getting better and better!
