Why We Like It

  • Style in this 20s-era gem is trendy in a laid-back kinda way. And it’s perfectly placed in a venture-worthy boutique-and-gallery-dotted ‘hood.
  • Award-winning (Best Hotel Bar) Broken Shaker offers handcrafted drinks and street-food inspired treats.
  • Hit funky Café Integral for light bites and craft drinks of both the booze and caffeine varieties.
  • The onsite event coordinators make it easy to explore the vibrant River North area and beyond.
