Waldorf Astoria Chicago is located in the heart of the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood at 11 E. Walton St. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s entrance is what first sets it apart from other Chicago hotels: the private courtyard is a beautiful cobblestone roundabout with an elegant fountain in the middle. Waldorf Astoria’s central location gives you easy access to the upscale shops in the Gold Coast, such as Barneys New York (next door), Hermès (across the street) and Marc Jacobs (in the hotel’s retail space). Chicago’s famed Magnificent Mile is just a couple of blocks east of the luxury hotel. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel also gives you quick access to some of the city’s best nightlife and popular Chicago restaurants on Rush Street. Just about everything else the city has to offer is a quick cab or public transport trip away, including the city’s museums and popular attractions, as well as the Loop, if you happen to be in town for business.
