The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel

Visitors to the Confrad AGM 2016 in Chicago are invited to stay at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel (CAAH). This hotel first opened in Chicago during the 1890’s, and has had a storied existence since then. Patronized by countless famous Chicagoans over the years, this was an elite establishment offering the high life to a select few. This landmark is now accessible to anyone that wants a taste of that world, though it has not lost its distinguished charm.
