SEPTEMBER 2019 — A humble mix of grace and grit, our proud city is all sparkling metropolis and elbow grease. Chicago throws her shoulders back, holds her head high, and invites you in with open arms for the best kind of hug. We hope you love her as much as we do, so, here are the goods to remember her by, and to remind you of your stay with us. Visit store.chicagoathletichotel.com to browse and buy these goodies:
Winter’s Favorite Blanket: Our iconic blanket. In the immortal words of Chicagoan & actor Gary Cole, “I miss everything about Chicago, except January and February.”
The Hotel Gift Card: Stay & play. Hang out with us during an overnight stay — gift certificates to our restaurants and bars sold separately!
Not Another Sports Tee: From the field to wherever. Our super soft, relaxed-fit tee keeps you classy and comfortable through all nine innings of your day.
Cherry Circle Room Gift Card: Farm-to-table, nose-to-tail. Visions of two — eh, make it three — martini lunches with Chicago’s midcentury power brokers. Enjoy fine dining in this James Beard Award-winning space.
Cherry Circle Room Shift: A keepsake. To remind you of a momentous kind of place, this fee features the same logo you saw in the alley outside, leading you to the restaurant in the way, way back.
Cindy’s Gift Card: One heckuva view. Perched thirteen stories above Millennium Park with Lake Michigan beyond, Cindy’s is the beloved jewel in our crown — our favorite view.
Founder’s Cuff Links: My, don’t you clean up nice. Named for the club’s founding members — including Marshall Field and William Wrigley — these cuff links offer a hint of sophistication and a distinguised air to any sleeve.
Dont Fret Mugs: Limited edition mugs by artist Dont Fret. Witty, sardonic, and oddly charming. Best known for his musings on streets in cities around the world, consummate wise guy Dont Fret brings his iconic style to four limited-edition mugs.
Game Room Gift Card: It’s on. Cocktail culture paired with classic suds n’ grub plays exceptionally well. Enjoy our built-in bocce bay, billiard, shuffleboard, chess and checkers tables.
Game Room Tee: A fine prize. Get in the game, and sport the Game Room logo with this tee. A reminder of good times.
Chicago Rocks! Glasses: Perfect Old Fashioneds not included. Everything tastes better when sipped from a handsome glass. Classic and sturdy, these rocks glasses come in a set of 2.
Spalding Would Sport This Cap: A cap that fits like a glove. A.G. Spaulding — a founding member of the original Chicago Athletic Association club — would be proud.
Be A Hero Headband: Don’t let ’em see you sweat. Warning: may intimidate opponents and be accompanied by a burst of vigor and vitality.
Heffelfinger Crew: A big soft on the inside. Just like the former club’s beloved member William “Pudge” Heffelfinger — officially the first ever paid professional football player — our crewneck is durable on the outside, and a big softy on the inside.
Milk Room Gift Card: Sip a little history. Once a Chicago speakeasy used during Prohibition, this eight-seat microbar perfects a spirit-forward cocktail menu crafted from only the rarest vintage spirits and elixirs.
Our Finest Suits: Not all suits are meant for business. Our custom playing cards offer a take-home and pocket-sized spirit of play.
The Champion of Robes: For featherweights, welterweights, and heavyweights. What makes your favorite sweatshirt your favorite sweatshirt? Imagine the type of comfort that only comes from being perfectly worn in — and then image it in robe form.
Skate-Worthy Tube Socks: Because of course we carry tube socks. Proudly sport the Chicago Athletic Association logo while breaking a sweat or getting groovy, on and off The Track, our pop-up roller skating rink.
C.O. Bigelow Toiletry Set: Our exclusive scent, No. 0255 Elixir Black Pepper. A timeless clean in a unisex scent: a dash of black pepper, drops of bourbon + sandalwood, a hints of deep vanilla + musk. A set of 4.
Windy City Slayer: Windy City tested, Michigan Avenue approved. Our hook-handle umbrella is designed to keep it classic + comfortable when strolling through rain, wind, and snow.
A Swing and a Pour: Talk about a home run. Our in-room glass bottles save approximately 127,000 plastic water bottles each year. We’ve had quite a few notable pitchers pass through our property, but none quite like this one.
Team Spirit Wristband: Get your game face on. Show your team spirit, whether you’re on the field or cheering from the sidelines.
