We stayed at the Radisson Blu on our trip to Chicago the week of the marathon. This was the perfect location as it was within walking distance to the start and finish and most of the local attractions like the navy pier and magnificent mile. The rooms are rather large and included complimentary water and wifi. Our room had hardwood floors and a large balcony that overlooked a small park and navy pier. Although we didn’t use them I was impressed with the gym, pools and outdoor seating area. There is an indoor and outdoor pool and a spacious gym. They even have a small track that goes around the outside pool and seating area outside. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Chicago.
