Hotel Haven - Hotel EMC2, Autograph Collection - Chicago

In the late fall of last year, still with a few vacation days and feeling restless I was randomly looking for hotel travel deals for a very quick getaway close by air, and I stumbled upon this appealing, interesting and just plain cool art meets science themed hotel that peaked my curious mind. Since it was available for a steal in later November (pre Thanksgiving and before the height of holiday season), I decided Chicago (always wonderful to visit) would be my couple of cool nights getaway and I was excited to stay at the recently opened Hotel EMC2 part of the Marriott AutographCollection brand.

A glimpse of the eclectic Hotel EMC2

Vibe – Creative boutique style hotel with art & science themed d├ęcor, hip and hi tech (there are two dapper Robots Leo & Cleo on site - they can make deliveries to your room!) Friendly service and cool, comfortable and unique rooms with excellent amenities on site including meeting spaces and a unique restaurant & lounge
Room – Maybe in part it was my mood in the last days of fall, slowly easing into the long winter ahead, therefore wanting a sense of privacy and comfort, but also coziness. This room delivered the experience of plush cocooning, where it was simply satisfying to end the night early watching familiar shows on a fantastic TV set. Not only was the bed comfortable but the room was outfitted with interesting and cool amenities, a functional work station with Amazon Alexa at your command, and a showstopping open glass spacious shower (with optional curtain for privacy) and overall thoughtful and advanced design.

Fantastic shower

Hotel Bar and RestaurantThe Albert restaurant on site has a casual and sleek vibe and the globally inspired menu is eclectic and well priced. The light and delicious Fjord Sea Trout Sautéed with Dill, Golden Beets, & Creme Fraîche was fresh and lovely, and the housemade bread is amazing. The bar is great for a nightcap too (with a well priced house wine as a bonus) and the decor is fascinating and will captivate the curious mind. 

Beautiful bar at the Albert

Location – Located in Streeterville near River North and a block off of the Magnificent Mile. There is plenty of food choices for all budgets right by the hotel, and an abundance of shopping and sightseeing within a short walk 

Beautiful city of Chicago by the river

This was one of my favorite hotel stays where I felt truly at ease and happy with the room and I highly recommend it. I look forward to experiencing more stays in Autograph Collection hotels by Marriott, and glad they are located in so many cities around the world
