The charm of a boutique hotel is hard to deny. Boutique hotels invite images of attentive service, localized decor and cuisine and a chance to feel less like a tourist and more like a welcome guest in the area. Even Airbnb wants in on this market.

PRINT 18 attendees and exhibitors can experience this alternative to chain hotels – all at an exclusive convention rate. Online booking is available for individuals and smaller groups. To book more than 20 rooms, please contact PRINT 18’s official hotel partner at printhotels@expovision.com or (800) 305-0039.

ACME Hotel Company Chicago

Acme - Berkshire Rm 05-2015Since 2012, the ACME Hotel Company Chicago has been shaking up traditional notions of boutique hotels. This River North hotel prefers to be affordable and hip instead of expensive and formal.

The fun starts right away in the artsy lobby. Later, you can relax with a drink at The Berkshire Room restaurant and lounge or grab a coffee and a pastry at West Town Bakery.

Then head up your room in an elevator plastered with music album covers. The rooms carry over the quirky decor and also bring in tech features that you typically won’t find in a traditional hotel.

Acme - 2 Beds 05-2013

At this downtown Chicago hotel, you can enjoy super-fast 100 MB band-width internet and wireless audio systems. You can even plug in your laptop to the TV for simple video streaming.
