How to find the perfect hotel for your next trip to Chicago
You may want to go somewhere a bit warmer than the coldest of winter days.
That’s because there are some great hotels that are located in the warmer part of the city, and that means staying there is more comfortable.
But there are also some places that are more suitable for a summer stay.
Take, for example, the popular Chicago Marriott Marquis hotel.
It’s located in downtown Chicago, about a half-hour away from the city’s tourist hotspot of Lake Michigan.
In the summer months, the hotel has two rooms that are heated by an indoor pool, so you can chill out with a few drinks and a nice view of the lake.
But when the heat gets out, you’ll find a warm room, too.
And you’ll have plenty of room to unwind with friends.
This is especially true during the summer, when Chicago hosts a summer soccer tournament.
“We’ve got about three, four, five games,” said Jennifer Koehler, a Marriott spokesperson.
That means the hotel is ready to host a game.
Koehlers said she could only offer two recommendations: the hotel’s two bedrooms and the lobby, where a large dining room is available.
The hotel’s rooftop deck offers views of downtown Chicago’s skyline, and the two rooms are perfect for enjoying a picnic.
The Marriott MarquIS also has a rooftop deck, which is perfect for a nice sunset, according to hotel staff.
It also has an open plan, so it’s a great spot to relax on a warm summer afternoon.
There’s also a pool with an infinity pool on the third floor.
But if you’re looking for something a little more cozy, you can also choose to stay in the hotel room suites, which are located on the first floor.
“Our suite has a huge bed, and it’s very comfy,” said Kate Krieger, a hotel spokesperson.
“It has two small, comfortable beds, which means you have the comfort of a full-size mattress.”
Rooms in the Marriott MarquIs have a pool, too, and a hot tub and sauna are available.
You can also get an all-inclusive package with an oceanfront spa, a hot-tub, a hammock, a sauna, an ice machine and a pool table.
“This is a place to have fun,” Kriegers said.
The Marquis Hotel also has two full-service bars and restaurants, which make it an ideal place for those looking for a place for a late-night date.
For those who want a little bit more privacy, the restaurant has an outdoor bar.
But don’t expect to have any of that indoors, either.
The rooms in the Marquis have a view of Lake Shore Drive, and there are several large windows in the lobby.
“You can get a view up the river and up the lakefront,” Kiehlers added.
“So it’s perfect for people who want to do something a bit more secluded.”
