Chicago Beach Hotel Information

When you think of Chicago, sea and sand may not be the first thing that comes to mind.

However, when you visit the city, you’ll find pristine beaches on Lake Michigan. Pack some Chicago-style hot dogs for a picnic lunch, sprawl out in the sand, and take a dip in the water to cool down. Chicago beach hotels provide you with easy access to the water, where you can build sand castles with your little ones or sail around the lake. These accommodations offer the serenity of nature at the lakeside, but they’re also near the city scene downtown. Whether your weekend includes multiple business meetings or lugging around sand toys, you’ll love being so close to the shore when you book a stay at a Chicago beach hotel.

Here at Expedia, we’re committed to helping you find the hottest deals around on Chicago hotels near the beach. We feature a massive selection of accommodations to suit all your needs, from business centers and concierge services to Wi-Fi access and on-site gyms. Check out our family hotels for when the kids are along for the trip and our romantic accommodations if you’re looking to impress your sweetheart. Find rooms with beachfront views and pool decks where you can make a splash during your vacation to Chicago.
