Great destination for families (faces fountain, kids activities all summer long, the bean), couples (romantic stroll along the bridge, bring wine and a picnic to concerts at the Pritzker Pavillion), downtown workers (lunchtime concerts, yoga classes on the green), and grandparents (guided tours of the Lurie garden). One of our favorite places in Chicago. Even has decent restrooms under the... More

We took the bus tour around the city, one of the places we stopped was Millennium park to see the Bean. Well everyone else had the same idea. The park was super crowded, the bean was like and alien spaceship that everyone gravitated towards and I'm not saying this to be cruel because the bean is cool but under the... More

Not much to dislike about a beautiful place to stroll through on a sunny Saturday morning. The 'bean' is totally cool. People watching is fantastic. Plenty of places to sit in the shade. Kid friendly!

Clean and Relaxing. You could spend a whole day here just meandering around. It truly is a very relaxing getaway from the nearby urban chaos.

Beautiful modern park. Lots of stuff for young families with kids to do. Walking distance from many of the downtown hotels. Would recommend.

Was a busy Saturday to visit, but had to see the bean. The park looked nice, and the area around the bean was packed.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
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.
