It’s no surprise that the Windy City loves its barbecue, and offers plenty of opportunities to celebrate the glory of the grill — especially during the summer.
Chicago’s Gold Coast
Ambassador Chicago is the city’s original boutique hotel, located in the heart of the Gold Coast.
Built in 1926, the hotel has played host to the who’s who of the 20th and 21st centuries, attracting legends from Frank Sinatra to Bill Murray., even Marilyn Monroe dazzling guests in the Hotel Restaurant, now Booth One and David Bowie getting glam before his gigs with the Spiders from Mars.
If walls could talk, the hotel would narrate stories of guests like celebrated Chicago sportscaster Harry Carry, a permanent resident of the hotel for years, rubbing elbows with the Rolling Stones while reveling outside his guest room.
A stately and historic landmark in the Gold Coast, Ambassador Chicago has long reigned as Chicago’s most iconic and instantly recognizable hotel. The perfect address for business, a glamorous setting for society weddings, and a treasured retreat for family holidays, Ambassador Chicago is woven into the fabric of the Gold Coast neighborhood in Chicago.
