Summer in Chicago

Storied Play. Every Day.

Storied Play. Every Day. Explore The Spirit Of Chicago Under One Roof This Season.

We’re back at it again – reawakening our spirit of play during the best time of year in Chicago! And this year we’re especially determined to not let the final sun-kissed days slip away without a few adventures of our own.

Connecting and reconnecting with friendly faces has been at the forefront of our minds, from lively conversations over drinks to livelier games and gatherings. Our spirited building offers an ideal spot for fall gatherings and getaways with unique experiences within our four walls, and just outside of it.


Experiences are at the heart of a CAA stay and though gatherings look a little different these days, we’re imagining and reimagining safe yet stimulating ways to take in our Venetian Gothic landmark. Sharpen your skills and groove on wheels in a 90-minute Roller Dance fitness class or take in a media and miniature installation from unstoppable duo, Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland, on display inside our Fine Art Case in the second floor lobby. Our events are ever-evolving and ever-growing… keep track of the full slate of programming here before your next trip.


There’s so many great events to explore in Chicago this fall, from (a rescheduled) Bike the Drive to Pitch Fork Music Festival in Union Park. But, we’re most intrigued by The Art of Banksy, the largest Banksy exhibit ever assembled. It’s been more than a decade since a genuine Banksy work was spotted in Chicago, but you can now see 80 of the street artist’s creations in this collection, on display at 360 N. State Street, the same building that houses the Museum of Broadcast Communications.

Get Your Drink (And Dine) On

With a lucky number seven dining and drinking establishments under our roof, we are proud to be the ultimate culinary playground of Chicago hotels. With all of our outlets reopened as of late September, take your pick between the swell curves and throwback cocktails at Cherry Circle Room, the intimate speakeasy vibe of the Milk Room, craft coffees, cold brews and specialty teas at Fairgrounds, or of course – the crown rooftop jewel of our hotel at Cindy’s.
