While it’s within easy access to the main downtown area, Lake Michigan and popular attractions, South Loop also offers a bit more tranquility than you’ll find staying in the Loop.
If you’re interested in spending time in this vibrant Chicago neighborhood, consider staying in one of the top South Loop hotels.
Bordered by Lake Michigan, gorgeous parks, the Chicago River, and Chinatown, South Loop’s location is hard to beat. This neighborhood also provides phenomenal access to the downtown Loop, Lake Shore Drive, and public transportation.
The South Loop is broken up into two distinct areas: Museum Park and Printer’s Row.
While Printer’s row offers more residential living with former printing plants and publishing houses converted into contemporary lofts and trendy bookshops, Museum Park boasts some of the city’s most well-known attractions.
Spend a day in Museum park exploring the Adler Planetarium, the country’s first and one of the largest planetariums. Afterwards, swing next door and admire the 1,5000 species housed at the Shedd Aquarium or catch a Cubs game at Soldier Field.
