Chicago Athletic Association

With echoes of billiard balls, poker chips and clinking glasses frozen within its walls, this 1890s Venetian Gothic landmark springs back to life as an incomparable historic Chicago hotel- where the spirit of play reigns supreme.⁣

This is the club whose members swam with five-time Olympic gold medalist Johnny Weissmuller aka the original Hollywood Tarzan and watched their fellow member Pudge Heffelfinger own so much end zone he became footballs first pro.⁣

Today Chicago Athletic Association Hotel is a historic monument to the big-shouldered, switch hitting spirit that defines our city.⁣
