Hotels & Lodging

Welcome to The Robey

For our inaugural year here in Chicago, Umbraco US Festival is excited our partnership with The Robey hotel in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The Robey delivers something to the northwest side that is more commonly found in downtown hotels - high design and unique amenities.

The Robey is located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, steps away from some of Chicago’s top restaurants, bars, transportation and nightlife. With 180-degree views of the city skyline, including tree-lined streets and the steel girders of L train stops, The Robey gives a perspective of Chicago in a completely new context: where today's design meets yesterday's daring vision.
