Hotel Sax Chicago is located in the heart of downtown in the vibrant Marina City complex. After the meetings end, it’s time for team-building. Who needs a cab? Steps away you’ll find the city’s best restaurants, shopping and nightlife. The House of Blues, a music venue, restaurant and Chicago icon, is literally outside our front door. Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse, kayaking in the Chicago River, architectural and high-speed boat tours, magnificent world-class shopping on the Mag Mile, 10Pin Bowling with a twist, and don’t forget (Holy Cow!) Harry Caray’s are minutes away using nothing but your own two feet. The haute Crimson Lounge in our lobby is THE place for before- or after-dinner drinks. A short car ride away you’ll find the historic and endlessly fascinating world of Navy Pier, where you can ride a Ferris wheel, see a Shakespearean play, browse local artist’s wares for sale, take in the spectacular Chicago skyline and much more. See the wildlife (aquatic and otherwise) at Shedd’s Aquarium and the Lincoln Park Zoo, the last truly free public zoo. Face your fears 1,353 feet in the air when you step onto a ledge of glass at Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower.
You know what they say about meetings and events. Location is everything. The Marina City neighborhood is the heart and soul of downtown Chicago. Attendees will appreciate Hotel Sax’s central location for exploring the culture, wonders, and attractions that make Chicago one of the most prized cities in the country. Inside the hotel, 10,000 stylish square feet of meeting space. And, some serious wow factors on the 4thfloor. A state-of-the-art 36' video wall greets guests as they enter a central rotunda – a dramatic focal part for breaks, mingling, grazing or social events. Off the rotunda, 10 meeting rooms ranging from just under 400 square feet to 3,670 square feet – perfect for any size meeting. And, a full-service catering and conference services team, create fun, unique breakouts and meal experiences distinctively Chicago.
It’s not a party without the food! If you’re having a sit-down meal, allow at least two to three choices for the main course. Some type of chicken and beef dish is usually the norm, but don’t forget about pork. Keep in mind that not everyone eats meat. Be sure to include a vegetarian dish. Feeling elaborate? Throw in a fish choice as well. Looking to do something a little bit different? How about setting up various food stations that offer traditional foods from different countries around the world?
