Your Business Travel Guide to Chicago

Chicago is known worldwide as a big business hub, so if it happens to be on a business trip in the Windy City, here is your Chicago survival guide and make the most of the time spent here.


Finding the perfect place to stay is one of the first steps you have to check when organizing your business trip. When choosing the hotel, take into account the period you are visiting. There are so many business-trip friendly hotels in Chicago, and one of them is Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, situated just a minutes walking distance from the Magnificent Mile, 360 Chicago and Museum of Contemporary Art. The 4-star hotel, built in 1927, offer all the amenities one needs for a business trip to stay connected to your business, but also to relax, everything at a lower price.

Of course, if you have a higher budget and your business trip depends on other amenities, such as technological ones, book a room at The Peninsula Chicago, a luxury hotel that provides free Wi-Fi so that you can work for your projects and presentations. Plus, you can check out the news as the hotel offers an extensive list of TV channels.

Other business-trip friendly hotels in Chicago are the big chains: Hilton, Hyatt Regency, IHG, and Marriot.


While on a trip it is important to eat well and Chicago has so many things to offer when it comes to food. You can choose traditional foods, such as a Chicago-style deep-dish pizza at Lou Malnati, known as the home of Chicago’s best pizza.

If you are in a hurry and you want to grab a delicious snack, try a juicy Italian wiener at Freddies Italian Eatery. Of course, here you can eat many other Italian dishes, with a touch of American taste.

Everest is the perfect place to be if your want to organize a sophisticated business meal. Situated in the Central Loop, Everest is an elegant French-inspired restaurant that offers not only delicious dishes but also a breathtaking view as it is located on the 40th floor of Chicago Stock Exchange. Pair your menu with a glass of refined wine.
