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.

My daughter and I stayed here while she checked out Columbia College, and we both loved it! A quick train ride from the airport and a stroll through three blocks and we were there, so easy. Our only regret is we didn't get to try everything in the hotel during our short stay.

This retro chic boutique hotel is a great alternative to the stuffy Chicago hilton across the street. Cool lobby, exec lounge with evening drinks/snacks and breakfast. The bar/restaurant is intimate with views of the lake. This was a nice surprise on a recent business trip but

The hotel is luxurious, housekeeping is excellent. Some staff at the reception were horrible, they need to take hospitality classes. The room that we stayed in made lots of noises as if being shaken by the winds.

We actually received early check-in with no fee but I sense that was based partially on availability. We stayed in what might be considered “off-season.”

is there a bar in the hotel, and is the ballroom open for me to have a look around during my stay.
They have a bar in the lobby and I believe there is one in the restaurant. I actually didn’t check out the ballroom but the employees are all very friendly and would probably make sure you saw it if you wanted to! Hope my answers help. Have a great trip & stay!!

"Very expensive hotel"
"Naturally, anything overlooking the park/Lake Michigan is great, but the views of Willis tower are also pretty fantastic! "
"It's worth it to spend a little more for a park/lake view"
"Face the water-- the changing weather and night lights are an added treat."
"lake view rooms are nice"
