AC Hotel Chicago Downtown Makes an Escape Downtown Fun, Easy and Affordable

Enjoy Chicago’s newest Escape Room and enjoy all the Magnificent Mile has to offer!

CHICAGO--()--The Marriott AC Hotel Chicago Downtown, owned and managed by Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, announced today that it is offering two creative and affordable packages for guests looking to escape during the holidays and winter months. The EscapeHouse Chicago package and Holiday Getaway and Shopping package will allow guests to immerse themselves in two highlights of downtown Chicago – the new escape room experience, EscapeHouse Chicago, and the Magnificent Mile.

Play and Stay with the New Chicago EscapeHouse Experience

Take on Chicago’s newest escape room experience, EscapeHouse Chicago, and then enjoy the comforts of the stylish AC Hotel Chicago for special rates starting at only $144 plus tax and gratuities.

With the “EscapeHouse Chicago Package,” guests will receive:

  • Overnight accommodations at the AC Hotel Chicago
  • Two tickets to the EscapeHouse Chicago and
  • Two cocktails at the AC Lounge.

The EscapeHouse, which opened November 21, 2016, immerses guests into an action-packed, 60-minute adventure.

Designed by the master operative behind Universal Studios, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Agent Fudd (a.k.a. Paul Daurio, Creative Development), EscapeHouse Chicago includes two game concepts:

  • Saving the White House, where participants are secret service agents in training who explore an exact replica of the Oval Office, right down to the presidential seal on the ceiling, fusing an educational overlap with stimulating excitement.
  • Escape the Safe House, where operatives use methodology, tools and tricks of espionage to break codes and find clues to become a super spy.

Over the course of 60 minutes within one of the two concepts, agents test their ability to discover clues, solve puzzles and work together under pressure.

Terms and conditions apply. Packages available Monday through Thursday for this special rate, based on availability. Advanced booking is required, and the package will not be available for sale less than seven days prior to arrival.
