The Langham Chicago
- Style: Classic, Romantic
At barely two years old, this 300+ room hotel takes up the first 13 floors of the Mies van der Rohe-designed IBM building (it’s actually the architect’s final work) but feels more like a boutique operation rather than a corporate-y behemoth. That said, it’s well equipped to host both business and leisure-minded travelers: spacious rooms, a choice of on-site restaurants, and a killer spa. It also offers all the thoughtful extras one might expect from a Langham, including afternoon tea service and a mini fleet of the signature pink taxis.
