View Full Version : Whither Americana Hotel?

My wife and I honeymooned at the Americana in Chicago in 1985. With our 25th coming up, I thought it might be cool to revisit the hotel. However, I can't find it on the web so I assumed it now is called something else. Does anyone know what the building is now called?

Could it have been the Congress Americana Hotel at Congress and Michigan Avenues? If so, it's now called the Congress Plaza......TRM

The Americana Congress Hotel at 520 S. Michigan reverted to the Congress name in 1987.
You may wish to look at some online reviews before booking your stay.

Thanks it was Congress & Michigan as I recall. I doubt we'll spend a night but perhaps next summer we'll drive by it en route to watch the White Sox or something. Thanks for the information!

Make sure to wave or honk for the strikers (http://www.chitowndailynews.org/Chicago_news/Congress_Hotel_workers_mark_sixth_anniversary_of_strike,28443), if you're of that political inclination.
