Tranquillity and Luxury Awaits at the Godfrey Hotel Chicago

Aug 17, 2022

Chicago is known for its architecture and century-old buildings; food and culture; and nightlife and entertainment. But there’s one thing that Chicago is also known for: it’s a gay mecca.

For years, gay men have flocked to Chicago to vacation and revel in the Northalsted gay village. And you can bet that if there was ever a place where LGBTQ+ people could feel at home, it would be Chicago.

That said, a city like Chicago is just begging for a hotel with a little something extra—something that can make your stay in the Windy City even better than it already is. And what better way to make your stay memorable than by staying at The Godfrey Hotel Chicago?
