    Great hotel. Historical interior, cool game room/bar with excellent whiskey selection, shuffle board, pool, and foosball tables. Cozy rooms! My new favorite.

    The CAA is a solid choice of hotel. Personal favourites were the tiling in the bathrooms, gorgeous view of the park, and restaurant/lounge on the reception floor (perfect for people-watching).

    Really nice hotel! We stayed in the Millennium Suite for the weekend and it was great. The hotel's game room was a highlight for us, as was the lobby. I will be staying there again.

    Beautiful space, head to the lobby on the second floor and hang for a drink in the game room.

    Cool spot on Millennium Park. Several spots within for food/drinks. Skip the more formal Cherry Circle Room & head to Cindy's for great shared plates (meatballs!) and a stunning view.

    After some pool, shuffleboard or bocce, no matter what the season is you can always go and enjoy a drink on the rooftop at Cindys.

    Awesome place to sit by the fireplace during the cold season. The game room is always crowded and a fun place to spend time.

    The Drawing Room on the second floor is essentially the lobby. It's great for a working breakfast with your laptop, a first date, or wine & oysters before dinner elsewhere. Read more

    Once a members-only club, the Chicago Athletic Association is now a smart—and unapologetically masculine—boutique hotel just steps away from Lake Michigan. Read more

    An old boys club feel to this place. Also has an old classical British feel to it. Rooms are athletic themed, simple, yet comfortable. Very special place.

    I love the library. Great place to have a drink and read a book on a cold winter day when you just cannot stand staying home.

    Nice options for drinks, nothing to overwhelming. Staff is super nice and welcoming. Chill relaxed environment.

    The second floor game room is perfect for groups of friends. Plenty of offerings, moderately priced drinks, and a chill vibe.

    Only went here for a great photo over Millennium Park and a view of the city at Cindy's Rooftop Bar. But there is a Bar inside here as well with some comfy atmosphere.

    Food or cocktails here pretty standard, nothing fancy or special. The winner here is the awesome space, friendly staff, and perfect location to regroup at some point over cocktails.

    Cindy's is the best part. If you have to wait on line, it's usually worth it. The game room is so cool for young people too!

    The coolest interior of any hotel I've ever been in. All of the games in the game room are free, including a full-size bocce court.

    The second floor bar and game room is expansive and gorgeous - feels like stepping into a speakeasy in the Loop. Cocktails are good but food and service are only so-so.

    Everyday at 2pm there is a tour of the building. See the gym, the ballrooms, what was the swimming pool and the speakeasy bar.

    Mixed place. Just Gorgeous. Not the best for biz travel. Reg rooms have no bath, tricky doors. A few things didn't work.
