Located at the corner of Congress Parkway and Michigan Avenue, the Congress Plaza Hotel is situated adjacent to Grant Park. The iconic Buckingham Fountain and Lincoln Statue are just steps away while Millennium Park and Lurie Garden adjoin Grant Park.

The Congress Plaza Hotel boasts 871 guest rooms and suites and being built in an era when it was fashionable to live in a hotel, the unique room configurations are unlike modern cookie-cutter chain hotels. Though times have changed since the Congress was originally built, the property has retained its character by blending the old with the new.
