TRAVEL Conde Nast readers select The Gwen as Chicago's best hotel

Conde Nast Traveler's readers have spoken—and their views of Chicago's hotels are distinctly different from those of another top travel publication.

While Viceroy Chicago topped Travel + Leisure's readers' list of local spots to stay, a hotel that didn't even place in that top 10—The Gwen—ended up number one on the Conde Nast list. (Incidentally, the Viceroy wasn't in Conde Nast's top-10 listing.)

"The Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award is always such a meaningful designation for us at The Gwen because it comes directly from our guests," said Area Director of Sales & Marketing Anna Jaszczyk in a statement. "And after such a challenging year for the hospitality industry, we are so grateful for the recognition and honored to have made a memorable impact on our guests."

Named for Gwen Lux, a Chicago-born pioneering female sculptor of the 20th century, The Gwen (located on the Magnificent Mile) features a 1928 wholly preserved facade and Art Deco interiors, with 311 taupe-and gold-hued guest rooms and 34 suites. The hotel's dining venues include Kostali by Naha, helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Carrie Nahabedian.

Other Chicago hotels on Conde Nast's list include (from two to 10) Hotel Julian; the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel; Nobu Hotel Chicago; 21c Museum Hotel Chicago; the Waldorf Astoria Chicago; Virgin Hotels Chicago; Freehand Chicago; The Langham, Chicago; and Acme Hotel Company.

Chicago was also chosen as the best big city in the United States.
