Viceroy Chicago

Marcel Proust famously wrote, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." This quote resonates with visitors to the Viceroy Chicago upon entering the lobby, where Proust's words are inscribed on a 30-foot-tall teal wall.

While the brick and terra cotta structure that houses Viceroy Chicago has a rich history dating back to the 1920s when it was the Cedar Hotel, TAL Studio has breathed new life into the building. The 180 rooms and suites feature a captivating palette of gold and teal, mid-century furniture for a timeless feel, and quirky touches like differently colored guest room doors.

Beyond its stunning design, Viceroy Chicago offers a range of experiences for guests to savor. The hotel's restaurant, Somerset, showcases the talents of one of Chicago's best chefs, serving mouthwatering American fare. The rooftop bar, Devereaux, offers a lively atmosphere with expertly crafted cocktails and breathtaking city views. And for those looking to unwind, Oak Street Beach is just a few blocks away.

The location of Viceroy Chicago is ideal for exploring the vibrant surrounding neighborhood. From upscale dining establishments like Gibson's Bar & Steakhouse and Maple & Ash to lively bars on Division Street and iconic deep-dish pizza at Lou Malnati's, there's something for everyone. And with the beach nearby, it's the perfect spot for relaxation and adventure alike.

At Somerset, Chef Lee Wolen's menu features everything from scallops to short ribs, with his signature juicy chicken being a standout dish. Head up to the 18th-floor Devereaux for cocktails like the Salty Dog and delicious bites from Wolen, while enjoying the alfresco pool and stunning views of the city and lake.

Viceroy Chicago is a pet-friendly hotel, offering amenities like beds, bowls, and toys for your furry friends. The hotel also has a Tesla Model X house car for guests to ride in style and offers complimentary bikes for exploring the Lake Michigan path. Although the hotel doesn't have its own spa, a partnership with nearby Exhale offers discounts on treatments and fitness classes.

The stylish rooms at Viceroy Chicago feature chaise lounges, floor-to-ceiling windows, mid-century modern furniture, and jewel tones. Lake View rooms offer glimpses of the waves rolling in, while the Viceroy One Bedroom Suite boasts two walls of windows for optimal views. The spacious bathrooms feature marble details, seated rain showers, and high-end Natura Bissé body products and ROIL hair toiletries.

The design of Viceroy Chicago goes beyond the Proust wall in the lobby, with white marble and brass accents throughout. A striking painting by South American Cubist painter Badi adorns the wall behind the check-in desk, and gold-framed black-and-white photos of historic Chicago buildings line the adjacent wall. Somerset's interior glows with soft gold, punctuated by colorful pine-green banquettes and a red neon "Cedar Hotel" sign.

Viceroy Chicago is a destination that combines history, style, and culinary delights to create an unforgettable experience for its guests. With its stunning design, exceptional dining options, and prime location, it's the perfect place to discover Chicago through new eyes.
