Chicago Tourist Attractions

Explore all the Chicago attractions near our hotel!

Located at the corner of Congress Parkway and Michigan Avenue, the Congress Plaza Hotel and Convention Center provides guests with unparalleled hospitality in the heart of Chicago. The hotel property is situated adjacent to Grant Park, a hotbed of Windy City activity throughout the year. Grant Park plays host to some of the biggest festivals and events downtown, including the world famous Taste of Chicago, Chicago Blues Fest, Chicago Jazz Fest and the Chicago Criterium.

The iconic Buckingham Fountain and Lincoln Statue are just steps away from the hotel and guests will have no trouble finding plenty of outdoor activities in Chicago’s “front yard.”

The city’s cutting-edge greenspace, Millennium Park and Lurie Garden, adjoins Grant Park on one end while Lakefront Trail (a popular spot to run, walk or bike the entire length of Lake Shore Drive) offers a closer view of Lake Michigan harbor.
