Chicago’s United Center is home to both the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association and the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League as well as countless performances from musical concerts to circus acts. If you’re heading there for a game or show and need hotel accommodations, set your sights toward downtown Chicago which is just three short miles from the popular venue.
Closer to Willis Tower and a easy shot up west toward the United Center are the historic Palmer House Hilton, JW Marriott Chicago and W Chicago - City Center. The Blackstone Renaissance Hotel on Michigan Avenue is nearby, too.
Other options include hotels near the Theater District such as trendy theWit and Hotel Allegro. The Holiday Inn Mart Plaza, just across the Chicago River, is an affordable option with stunning skyline views.
Across the Kennedy Expressway and west of the Loop (and closer to the United Center) is the recently updated and contemporary Crowne Plaza Chicago – The Metro within the Greektown neighborhood. The Chicago Marriott at Medical District/UIC is a little more off the beaten path since it primarily serves the medical district community but it’s another affordable option for those who want something as close to the United Center as possible.
