Each one of The Gwen’s guest rooms and suites epitomizes the glamour of Chicago in the 1930s, melded with the graceful style of contemporary design. Illuminated by natural light and framed by striking cityscape views, our newly-renovated accommodations are inviting, sleek, and never stuffy. Finished with crafted details, exceptional niceties, and original artwork honoring our namesake — pioneering sculptress Gwen Lux — a stay at The Gwen promises delightful discoveries. And for those seeking something special? High-style glamping on our open-air terrace is anything but ordinary.
It was our family’s first time staying here and we were really impressed with the decor and cleanliness. Andrew checked us in and was very courteous and professional. Andrew acknowledged our Ambassador status and upgraded us to a suite on the 17th, which provided some beautiful views of the Magnificent Mile. The room is stunning and very large for a place in Chicago as rooms usually run small. This hotel really cares about all the details and have taken Covid 19 precautions by sanitizing all touch points in the room. Location is great, two blocks from Chicago River and you literally have tons of restaurant options within a three block perimeter. Trust me, you cannot go wrong.
