Welcome to Aloft Chicago Downtown River North

Stay & play in downtown Chicago

Infuse your trip with enthusiasm and energy. Our location near the Chicago River is teeming with activities for the action-oriented. Visit The Magnificent Mile, Shedd Aquarium and the Art Institute of Chicago. Take a photo in front of Cloud Gate, our iconic sculpture at Millennium Park. Walk to beercades, nightclubs, speakeasys and award-winning restaurants. With our nearby CTA, return from Wrigley Field and refuel in minutes at Beatrix, our hotel restaurant with house-made pastas and vegan options. Appreciate pick-me-ups at our coffeehouse and W XYZ® Bar or spur yourself forward at Re:charge℠ Gym (reservations required), offering cardio equipment with personal TVs.

Take in the city from a chic work desk, revitalize in a renovated bathroom and sink into a platform bed.
