The Hard Rock Hotel Chicago was carved out of the landmark Carbide and Carbon building in the heart of the Windy City. The historic art deco building, which was erected in 1929 in the image of a Champagne bottle, dances 40 stories into the sky. Just steps away from renowned Magnificent Mile Shopping, artistic Theatre District, pulsing new Millennium Park, historic landmarks, as well as architecturally stunning business towers and offices. Located just South of the Chicago River, where Michigan Avenue meets "The Loop", the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago is the perfect Chicago base to take in all the sights and sounds of this vibrant city. O'Hare International Airport: 18 miles/29 km, 30 minutes.
