Located on the southeastern tip of Lake Michigan, Chicago is the third-most populous city in the United States after New York City and Los Angeles. It is an international center for finance, culture, and industry and has a derivatives market focused on derivatives and futures.

In the 1800s, Chicago, or more importantly, the Chicago Ship Canal, connected the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River. Also, its midwest location made Chicago a significant rail hub linking the eastern and western United States.

Today, Chicago welcomes tourists and business travelers from around the world who come to explore the city's award-winning museums, attractions, and restaurants. With this in mind, we have compiled five of the "Windy City's" best luxury hotels.
