These architectural treasures are perfect for the design lover’s trip to the Windy City


As the birthplace of the modern skyscraper, Chicago has been a magnet for architects since the early 19th century: Brilliant designers like Henry Ives Cobb, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Jean-Paul Viguier have contributed to the iconic cityscape. In a town with such a rich architectural history, modern hoteliers can offer, immaculately designed properties set within landmark structures. Staying at one of these extraordinary hotels lets you glimpse a bit of history while gaining a better understanding of what Chicago’s design perspective is all about.


Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile


With rooms designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon and paintings by French artists Didier Equer and Eric Peynet, this 52-story hotel built by Jean-Paul Viguier is the ideal sojourn for a modern Francophile. The architect wanted the Sofitel’s shimmering white glass to complement the stoic black façade of the nearby John Hancock Tower. Nestled in an area known for mansions and specialty boutiques, Sofitel balances luxe with leisure. While the grand staircase lit with more than 3,000 fiber-optic bulbs is a contemporary tribute to the Paris Opéra, the subtly elegant guest rooms offer a serene escape from the hustle of Magnificent Mile.
