Airbnbs are one of my favorite accommodations, especially for road trips! While hotels are the default accommodation for large cities like Chicago, Airbnbs offer a way for you to experience the city more authentically.
Many of the Airbnbs in this post come with superior amenities and more space than hotel rooms. And just because you’re in an Airbnb doesn’t mean you have to compromise on any of the luxuries you might want.
So here are the coolest Airbnbs in Chicago!
