We had a good experience at the Buena Vista. Our room with two queen beds wasn’t large but big enough to do the job. We chose a room overlooking Lombard which was probably louder than facing inside but had a decent street view. The bath...More

world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
