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.

On recent business trip stayed at the Congress for two nights, wonderful historic location over looking the lake, fabulous. The building is full of history and the bar is excellent location to meet for a few cocktails and talk business.

I’ve now stayed at this hotel two times in the past six months. I’ve been very pleased with both visits. The hotel is obviously old but with that comes lots of charm! It’s exactly what should you should expect from an old building in Chicago. The rooms are clean and the location

Average hotel; tired rooms, the bathrooms in particular; low water pressure in shower and variable water temperature.
Overpriced breakfast buffet.

Decent location.
Good housekeeping.
There are better hotels Downtown for the same or lowering price.

Hi . Is there a shuttle from the NRA show event grounds ? I am looking to book from 17th May-20 May.
Well, most conventions have shuttle service to all hotels. The Congress is between the Palmer House and the Conrad Hilton, thus shuttles should get one close to McCormick Place. Commuter trains (Metra) also are an easy walk from the Congress, and they stop beneath McCormick Place. These hotels are near State street and Michigan Ave. Not to be confused with north-side hotels. Hope this is some help. NRA is a large convention, indeed. Stan "Z"

"14th floor on the south tower... we had 1403, right next to the elevator, quiet with a knockout view."
"Cash on hand gives best access to amenities."
"Saw Frankie Vali across the street. Walking distance to Art Museum."
"14th floor facing Lake Michigan - if you like views in the am -- beautiful Sunrise one day / massive breakers the next."
