We were in Chicago to attend a concert at the United Center. The location was outstanding! Flew into O'Hare… jumped on the CTA Blue Line… which took us to LaSalle and Congress, directly across the street from the hotel. Union Station and State Street are a quick walk… the Brown, Orange and Pink Lines are steps away. This property is... More

We arrived at O'Hare and took a taxi - 45$ including tip for 2 people and 2 large suitcases. We told the driver that we wanted to go to 440 S La Salle Street. The building is large and a taxi driver is unlikely to know the hotel or athletic club exists as they take up a small part of... More

One floor, the 40th, and apparently 21 rooms only. Room 4006 with lake view and floor to ceiling windows in each room. Fantastic views from each room and on top, front seat to watch the Navy Pier fireworks should you stay on a weekend. The location is generally very handy, walking distance to various points of interests and access to... More

We come downtown often for overnight weekend stays. This trip we came with someone who had a certificate so we paid an Expedia price to join them. The views are spectacular, very quiet hotel and an old time feel. Being located in the financial district, this also brings many things closed in the immediate area and cold only so-so continental...

We enjoyed this hotel. Located on the 40th floor, we had an awesome view of Lake Michigan and the museum campus. Wish we would have done a city view instead though! Sears tower and other buildings are on the other side. Room was very spacious and clean. The elevator transfer was not an issue at all. Downsides were the reception... More

Hotel is on the 40th floor of an office block which is on top of the old stock exchange. The hotel reception is the security desk of the office block. So little know, don't be worried if even the taxi drivers don't know its there (as ours didn't). Centrally positioned right in the loop. you get your keys and have... More

The hotel is difficult to find and the check-in is completed by an individual at a security desk in the lobby of an office building. Take the elevator to the 39th floor, change to another elevator to the 40th floor and there are your rooms. The rooms were spacious, clean, well appointed and provided a wonderful view of downtown Chicago,... More

This hotel was very nice, it's in a quite part of town in the finance district. The reception is manned by security who were very helpful. The room was clean (maybe a little dated). I would definitely stay again.
