A simple way to enjoy Chicago at its finest, the Travelodge on East Harrison is a low-key option surrounded by upscale perks. Enjoy simple studios that offer quaint views of the city and free Wi-Fi, or upgrade to a modest suite, each one offering large living areas and wet bars perfect for entertaining. The hotel also offers ample transportation options, from close access to the Harrison Street subway stop to a slew of light-rail trains, the closest on Van Buren Street. Those looking to get to Midway International with ease should take the time to book an airport shuttle, making the end of your trip as easy to look forward to as the beginning.
Where the property lacks in on-site amenities it makes up for in location - get a feel for the city by starting the day in Grant Park, located just one block east and home to amazing attractions, from views of Lake Michigan a la Buckingham Fountain to exotic marine life swimming through Shedd Aquarium. If you’re visiting in the summer, check out the 12th Street Beach along Northerly Island afterward, or go with something warm & inviting amidst winter, whether it’s a look at the stars from Doane Observatory or a long afternoon of natural exhibits inside The Field Museum. Don’t forget to witness the one-of-a-kind view from Chicago 360 while you’re in town, an unmissable hotspot just north of the Chicago River that offers 1,000-feet-high glimpses of the Windy City from a translucent balcony.
