The Belden-Stratford is near downtown Chicago, across from Lincoln Park. The hotel is a Chicago landmark and the location puts guests steps from the lake and public transportation. The dramatic two-story Grand Lobby reflects exquisite European elegance and is accented with Empire period furnishings. One of Chicago's most celebrated restaurants is located in the hotel: Mon Ami Gabi, a delightful French bistro. When summer comes, enjoy outdoor dining there and a great view of Lincoln Park. For personal convenience, there is valet parking for a fee, complimentary fitness center, full service beauty salon spa, and dry cleaners located in the arcade. The hotel has 60 guestrooms, each equipped with air-conditioning, dataport, and cable television. Parking is 38.00 per night.
