From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

More is more at Chicago's new music industry hot spot (formerly the House of Blues hotel), extroverted both stylistically and socially. A neighbor to the iconic 1964 Marina City (a.k.a. The Corncobs), Sax banishes the minimalism that has given design hotels a cold name, substituting a rococo sense of style in its 353 rooms: snakeskin wingback chairs, paisley-embossed leather headboards, and painted silhouettes of phantom chandeliers. Though the service is uniformly helpful and frequently enthusiastic, the Sax is not a place to cosset yourself away in your room. The House of Blues club next door ensures a steady stream of performers, as well as roadies and managers, creating a high-energy scene in the lobby, with its glass columns and check-in desks. Club patrons and hotel guests congregate in the lounge, Crimson, perching on a tufted red leather couch under a deer-antler sconce. For guests only, there is also a groovy technology lounge stocked with laptops, video games like Guitar Hero, downloadable music, movies, and HDTV screens, which are wired together so that Xbox players can face off from across the room.

—2008 Hot List

When to go: Year-round, with Thursday through Saturday nights best for party people.
