Top 10 Chicago hotels for pizza fanatics
When you stay at the Carlton Inn Midway, Giordano’s famous stuffed-crust pizza is so close you can almost taste it. Just under a 10-minute walk from the hotel, Giordano’s is best known for its double-crusted, cheese-stuffed pie—a recipe that’s been in the Giordano family for more than 200 years. Serving meat, cheese, and veggie combos, this pizza place claims their pies are 40% bigger than their competition’s deep dishes.
4. MileNorth Chicago – Gino’s Pizza
Chic and cutting edge, MileNorth Chicago is a breath of fresh air. Decked out in neoclassical and Art Deco designs, this contemporary hotel in downtown Chicago flaunts a hip rooftop bar, state-of-the-art fitness area, café, and spacious rooms.
“The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. I forgot my toothbrush and they brought one up to my room…The room was very clean and the bathroom was roomy,” an Expedia.com reviewer commented about MileNorth Chicago. “Loved the location, it was right next to a very popular historic pizza place, and walking distance from some of the best restaurants and shopping in Chicago! Will definitely come back!”
Step outside of MileNorth and catch a whiff of Gino’s East pizza. Located a mere 69 feet west of the hotel, this pizza parlor has been spinning “legendary deep dish pizza, since 1966.” Because Gino’s East spices up its traditional pies with bacon stuffed jalapenos, giardiniera, and sweet pepper toppings, it’s no wonder it’s one of the most talked about Chicago pizza restaurants in town.
