Trump International Hotel Chicago

My room at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers has a west looking view of the Chicago River and a huge glass covered skyscraper dominates the river view skyline. Walking from the hotel along the river walk path, I passed through the Wrigley Building and found myself outside the Trump International Hotel Chicago.  This is the second tallest building in North America at 1,389 ft.

Chicago’s Willis Tower, formerly named the Sears Tower is #1. Trump International Hotel Chicago was the 6th tallest skyscraper in the world when it was completed according to the October 21, 2009 plaque outside the hotel.

Loyalty Traveler took a room tour. That’s one of the perks of having a business card and hotel-oriented website. In my experience, luxury hotels are willing to let me drop in and photograph their offers since I primarily write for frequent guests who may be seeking rooms in Trump’s luxury market competitive set of Ritz-Carlton, Park Hyatt, Conrad, InterContinental and W Hotels – all hotel brands within the vicinity and price range of the Trump Hotel Chicago.

The Trump Tower reflected a brilliant sunspot as I walked back to my hotel.

The Trump Hotel Chicago rates for October 22-24 are $368 per night for a two-night stay next weekend for the room category shown in my photos. The two W Hotels in Chicago and Park Hyatt Chicago have higher rates than that during most of this week.
