From the first time we walked into this cool, modern hotel we were impressed, and it never stopped. The bellhop was so friendly and welcoming. The front desk people were helpful and quick to get their job done. Our beautiful corner room on the 18th floor with a wrap around balcony was so impressive. Never had a bathroom with huge... More

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.
