Virgin Holidays View
A firm favourite with locals and travellers alike, the Avenue Hotel is a sleek, contemporary building offering premier accommodation and a great range of amenities in the heart of Chicago. Families will love the Kid-Friendly rooms, specially equipped with video games, colourful décor and children’s books, whilst computer wizards can opt for Tech Rooms with high speed internet connection, an iMac computer and colour printer. Although you’re surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the world, we’re sure the hotel’s own SKY Lounge on the 40th floor will become a firm favourite. Serving European-style cuisine and tapas plates in the most sophisticated surrounds, you can also enjoy stunning views of the city as you wine and dine under the stars. If you’re missing home, the Elephant and Castle Restaurant and Pub on the 1st floor serves traditional English fayre, including fish and chips and bangers and mash, as well as all-American favourites such as burgers and fries, pasta and seafood. There are also 21 different beers and ales on tap for a real hint of nostalgia! A seasonal rooftop swimming pool will please children and adults alike plus there’s a fitness centre to work off some of that world-famous Chicago-style pizza!
