Words cannot explain how beautiful the views are at the top. Absolutely worth the visit. You could stay up there and stare out at the city 360 degrees for hours. Walk out onto the see through observation deck and the thrill alone is worth looking down 94 floors!

Second time in Chicago and had to check out the 360 Observation Deck. Great view of the city, lake and surrounding states, even got a first hand view of a oncoming storm.

360 degree view of Chicago! I recommend getting sun and stars package! It costs 24$ per adult and you get to go twice during the day and then come back at night! Personally i prefer this better then Willis( former Sears ) Tower view!

Never have we seen the city from this height. Chicago City Pass helped going up but it should have allowed a fast pass going down too.

I visited the observation deck on the 94th floor of the John Hancock building. Amazing views! I didn't know Lake Michigan looked so gorgeously exotic but it did that day! There is also another activity you can buy once you reach the 94th floor for those that still want an even better view. You can do "Tilt" which leans you... More

Went to 360 Chicago on a nice sunny day. The view of the city is outstanding. Take your camera for sure as you will not get a better panoramic view of Chicago. There is an extra charge for TILT, the experience that allows you to lean out into an angled window for a different perspective. Not worth the additional cost.

While you can get the great views from the Willis Tower, it's the Tilt that makes this special. If you're not afraid of heights, it is fun to look down on the street at a 30 degree tilt out from the building.

The ticket including entrance and cocktail was very enjoyable. Great views of Chicago with a drink in hand hard to beat.... but not only is entry quite a wait, exit queues were worse

Honestly, we did not feel like being too touristy by paying $40 for two tickets just to get to the top of the building - my hint for you is to look for the back elevator and take the free elevator to the cafe just underneath the floor of the big tourist area. You will get carded before being lead... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
