    Great staff and lots of pup perks

    The hotel was much nicer than the images and the staff was out of this world friendly. They took good care of our pups offering room upgrades and doggie treats to spoil our two dogs. We’ll be back!

    Really helpful staff

    The staff was amazing at Chicago Athletic Association! Madeline and Christine really went all out to welcome us, and help us get settled. We were able to walk our dogs in Millennium Park,, but dogs are not supposed to be in the park. A ranger came up to us and said “NO DOGS” but then met our dogs, petted them, and said...ok they are ok and let us continue our walk. There is no other close place to take dogs, even though one of the reviews says there is a green space on the property. We couldn’t find it. The next day we ended up walking a mile to the dog park, where we all had a good time. The hotel has such wonderful staff who emailed us before we came, gave us parking information, and made us feel very welcome. The hotel needs to deal with finding a place where dogs can more easily do their business.

    Great Stay!

    Our dog greatly enjoyed the extra attention and welcome cookie from staff. The hotel was very accommodating and we enjoyed being on Michigan Ave. Do note that for an area with lots of grass, you do have to walk to the corner of Columbus and Monroe, behind the Art Museum. Millennium Park during our visit had restrictions.

    Our pup's favorite Chicago hotel!

    Honestly the best dog-friendly hotel we've ever experienced. No limits on weight so our Great Dane can stay there without any problems. The staff go above and beyond and the hotel is gorgeous. Highly recommend a stay at Chicago Athletic Association!

    Upscale Hotel Right Downtown!

    My husband and I have stopped here a couple times with our dog as we used to live in the city and now like to travel through here on our way from where we live now to our family's houses for the holidays. It's a great location, right downtown and there's a lot to do right in the hotel itself! We usually grab food and drink at one of their bars/restaurants within the hotel and can stroll right by Millenium Park with our pup as it's right across the street! Staff is friendly and the style and cleanliness of the rooms is fantastic. It's really a fun, unique and comfortable place to stay!
