Despite the cultural and culinary draws of downtown Chicago, you might find yourself in need of a hotel in a quiet neighbourhood outside the city. Perhaps you want to be close to the airport, or fancy a cheaper hotel when prices inflate during one of the city’s famous festivals. Whatever your reason, you may be surprised to discover that many of Chicago’s suburbs merit a visit in their own right. Here’s our pick of the area’s best hotels.

Do you have an early flight? If so, spend the night at O’Hare International Airport’s only hotel, packed with amenities that ensure a restful night.

Multiple dining options include Andiamo, specializing in Italian-American comfort food, and the Gaslight Club, offering aged steak, seafood, cocktails, scotch and more.

More budget-friendly than the Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport but still within 10mi (16km) of O’Hare, this chic hotel sits within the Randhurst Village lifestyle center. On your doorstep are the AMC Cinema, brand-name shops, restaurants and wellness centers. However, you won’t need to leave the hotel to work up a sweat, as it has a fitness room and a swimming pool.

Price Drop
Now from $82 per night

Renovated in 2017, this boutique hotel is close to the action – within a 30-minute subway ride to Millennium Park – but suburban enough to offer a different side of Chicago to repeat visitors. The decor plays up the Versey’s alternative roots with rock-inspired murals and vintage memorabilia – an offbeat vibe that continues as you step onto the streets of surrounding Boystown, America’s oldest official LGBTQ neighborhood.

Families and festival-goers with a car can escape the city at this three-star hotel in the quiet suburb of Bolingbrook. While the attractions of Chicago’s Museum Campus are just a 35-minute drive away, the surrounding area also has its charms, including the upmarket Promenade Bolingbrook shopping center, the Route 66 Raceway and Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve. Fuel up before heading out with complimentary breakfast at the hotel.

    Renovated in 2019, this three-star hotel sits opposite the subway station, granting access to the Chicago city center within one hour. However, the Skokie area has its own appeal. Catch live jazz at the Skokie Theatre, shop at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s at Westfield Old Orchard, or tee off at multiple golf courses. Traveling with a canine companion? You’re in luck. Also, kids under the age of 18, who share a room with their parents, can expect to stay for free.
