Things To Do

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, adjacent to Grant Park and walking distance from the city’s top attractions, shopping and restaurants, the Congress Plaza Hotel & Convention Center offers a vibrant, exhilarating gateway to The Windy City. From our perch at the corner of Congress Parkway and Michigan Avenue, we’ve been bringing guests the best of Chicago for nearly 125 years.  

From iconic skyscrapers, an astonishingly diverse array of art museums and cultural destinations and world-class restaurants to 24 beaches, nearly 600 parks and a walking, biking, and jogging trail right on Lake Michigan, Chicago has an adventure waiting for everyone. Just a few steps from the hotel bring you to exclusive shopping on the Magnificent Mile, the restaurants and entertainment venues of The Loop, or the 17-story Ferris Wheel on the Navy Pier.

If you would like recommendations on more things to do and see or assistance arranging tours, tickets and transportation, our Concierge is at your service. Let us open the door to a side of Chicago no other hotel can show you!
