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.

I picked a hotel near the river and was happy with this random selection I made. Room suites were great. Front desk staff was awesome. We also were able to check our luggage in and go sightseeing before departing. I enjoyed the two bathrooms and also that there was space between both bed areas.

We booked this hotel based on proximity to the Chicago Theater because we were attending a concert there. Very pleasant staff. We requested a room with a view of the River and when we checked in, we did have the view (of TRUMP tower btw lol) but the room was tiny! No fridge, no microwave and we had to maneuver around each other as the closet and bathroom doors cannot be open at the same time. Small bathrooms of note. No room service. However, when we asked about whether or not a microwave was available, the extremely pleasant and helpful front desk agent offered to upgrade our room with a microwave, fridge, and the same view, one floor above. They offered to transfer our luggage and settle us in. The new room was larger and much less confining. Things you should know when booking a room: clarify the room size, and any amenity you may require. Also, there is no room service. Complimentary coffee is on the 2nd floor. An excellent locale. One negative, is the mattresses are not ultra comfortable of note.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Sierra in particular at the front desk was a bright light who provided us with so much information about best routes to take as well as restaurant tips over the course of our 4 day stay. She always seemed to be available when we needed help. Pedro and Emily also stand out, as well as others whose names we cannot recall. The location was terrific--overlooking the river (hence the name) with lots of great restaurants and sights within walking distance and very close to buses and trains. Complimentary coffee, water, snacks, fresh fruit, as well as a wine and cheese happy hour on weeknights! Our room was comfy and had plenty of space for the two of us.
