Hotel Near The Brookfield Zoo
Book your stay in our hotel near the Brookfield Zoo to enjoy an exciting day at one of Chicago’s top attractions. Originally opened to the public in June 1934, the zoo was revolutionary in its choice to separate animals from visitors and each other by using moats and ditches instead of cages. Additionally, they gained international notoriety for being the first zoo in America to feature giant pandas, the first indoor dolphin exhibit, and the first fully indoor rainforest simulation.
Clarion Inn Elmhurst - Oakbrook is just 10 miles away from the zoo! Hop in the car with the whole family, take S Riverside Dr and turn left onto IL-83 S, take the Oak Brook Road/31st Street exit, then take a slight right onto Grand Blvd. At the traffic circle, take the exit onto Washington Ave then turn left onto Golf Rd.
