The charming suburb of Hyde Park in south Chicago is picturesquely enclosed by pretty urban parkland on one side and the glittering shore of Lake Michigan on the other, making it a prime location for a refined city break. This stylish 3.5 Hot Rate hotel just a stone’s throw from the waterfront is available exclusively to Hotwire customers at irresistibly discounted rates. Previous Hotwire city breakers have been fortunate enough to save on a stay in the Chicago Lake Shore hotel, the Chicago South Loop hotel and the Hilton Chicago. Quality hotels in Hotwire’s 3.5* collection commonly offer complementary buffet breakfasts in their highly regarded restaurants and free unlimited Wi-Fi, as well as indoor pools and fitness centres. Owing to its sought after location just minutes from the heart of Chicago’s vibrant metropolis, Washington Park and some of the city’s most popular museums, this Hot Rate hotel appeals to any traveller.
Characterised by its pockets of parkland and numerous academic institutions, Hyde Park is one of Chicago’s most prestigious postcodes. Although Hyde Park is renowned as the home of the University of Chicago, tourists are also drawn to the fun-filled Smart Museum of Art, the interactive Museum of Science and Industry and the poignant DuSable Museum of African American History, all of which are within walking distance of this Hot Rate hotel. Those after a taste of quintessential Chicagoan culinary delights, from deep dish pizzas to traditional American diner-style dishes, are also just a stone’s throw from some of the Southside’s most celebrated bistros and restaurants.
Hyde Park makes for an attractive alternative to inner-city accommodation due to its abundance of tranquil urban retreats and beautiful natural vistas. Whilst Washington Park is full of lagoons, conservatories and water fountains, Jackson Park boasts a driving range and its own beach on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Hotel guests are afforded easy access into downtown Chicago by virtue of the extensive metro and bus links, the nearest stops being Hyde Park itself and Kenwood. Within a matter of minutes, guests can be browsing the hundreds of shops on the famous Magnificent Mile, surveying the breathtaking panoramas from the Skydeck of the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower or the Museum Campus tourist hotspot. Whilst in Chicago, tourists are also advised to spend an evening out at one of the city’s many traditional jazz and swing cafes for a true taste of the Windy City’s inimitable cultural heritage.
