Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

Hotel is pretty decent but it’s right next to train tracks and very noisy. Also walls are so thin that you can even hear people coughing or talking on the phone. If you are a light sleeper don’t stay here.

yes, but it isn’t that great.. the view is average. expensive food and drinks and no better than some of the executive lounges Hilton has outside of the US. If you go in the evening, the dress is business casual.
