We were fortunate that our seats in the Dress Circle (Row C) were in the first 3 rows of the center of the Dress Circle. TripAdvisor reviews and finding the website with views from specific seats are recommended before buying tickets.

We went for Hamilton and sat on the lower level where each seat looked to be a good one. The process of entry and assisting in seating was well done.

We went to the theatre to see Hamilton; our seats in the Dress Circle were very good. We also looked around the theatre. It's very pretty, though it pales in comparison to the Atlanta Fox Theatre.

Absolute wonderful adventure to the CIBCS theatre to see Hamilton. Very nice theatre, I don’t believe there is one bad seat in the house.

Don't be fooled by the ticketing counter saying D and E are good rows for this theatre. They're not. Probably row 8-12 from stage is better. Rows 1-5 are way too close to state and with not much elevation. You can't see the performance properly....More

Hamilton! Finally & fabulous! Need I say more? And the fact that it was in the 1,800-seat CIBC Theater in the downtown Loop just added to a wonderful experience. I would love, love, love to see “Hamilton” again before it ends its more than three-year...More

We had boxed seats off to the right of the stage because it would get both close and were cheaper with the blocked view. Overall, you could only not see the far right of staging. Since most of the show is dead center, we really...More

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

We went to dinner at Italian Village just dawn the block. We received our parking in advance and the valets took care of the rest. Definitely recommended.

Theater wear has become increasingly casual in recent years. While I wouldn't recommend shorts or jeans, pretty much anything goes.
