THE GIST: Ian Schrager’s first foray into the Chicago market reflects his “less isn’t just more, it’s better” philosophy with its airy 16-foot lobby ceilings, minimalist palette, and location on a subdued stretch of the Gold Coast. The hotel’s proximity to the lake and to Rush Street makes it a good choice for couples who want a night on the town. For those who prefer to stay in, a gilded lounge and the refurbished Pump Room pulse with the energy of a see-and-be-seen crowd.
