There are many hotels in downtown Chicago’s Loop, most of which are in walking distance of a train station. If you’re researching where to stay, view this list of hotels that are the closest to the “L” to narrow down your options. Walking time is two minutes or less to all hotels — great if you have luggage and don’t want to walk far. We’ve also included the airport with direct service from the station or stations near the hotel if you’re flying to Chicago.

Note: Not all “L” stations in the Loop are handicap-accessible, so be prepared to carry your bags up and down stairs or use one of the few handicap-accessible stations (which might require a longer walk to the hotel).
