Fulton Market, Randolph Market, Jackson Boulevard and Greek Town make up the West Loop. The neighborhood is best known as the location of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios, but this downtown neighborhood is also an up-and-coming spot for Chicago’s trendsetters. Several sub-neighborhoods within West Loop make this a unique neighborhood to visit. Dotted with factories and warehouses, West Loop is packed with various types of dining and nightlife options. If your timing is right, you can take part in neighborhood events like the West Loop Farmers Market, Craft Beer Fest, or the Randolph Street Market Festival.
Brilliant system that allows you to buy a day pass, three day or seven day pass to go anywhere on the system. We flew into OHare airport and it’s then a doddle to buy your pass at the terminal station there ($20 for three days) and enjoy zooming around!
Some lines are above ground, like the Brown Line, giving great...

"Three Union Stations, in three days."
reviewed 1 week ago by O1994GOjohnk
I was traveling by train from DC to LA. I had a stop in Chicago. I met a friend for lunch and hung out at the station waiting for my train to LA. The station is very impressive and was decked out for the holidays. It was also very busy. Check out the photos.
Took a group of teenage girls for my daughter's birthday this weekend. Not sure why it's called a museum because an exhibit is a better name for it. I know there has been recent reviews about broken items but that was not what we experienced. The museum took about 1.5 hours to explore for our group of 14. Lots of...
"A fascinating piece of history, both Greek and American"
reviewed October 24, 2018 by fibersong
This museum tells the story of the Greeks coming to America, why and how they came, and what they made of their life here. The photographs and accompanying commentary are insightful, detailed, and often surprising to me. It was delightful and heartwarming to see the connection to Chicago.
The museum also had a retrospective exhibit of Georges Kokines, a superbly...

This is a great place for a late breakfast/early lunch during the week if you don’t want to wait. Worth the wait at peak times any day. We went at 11 a.m. and had no wait. The baked goods are made there and the cinnamon rolls are woth making a stop for on their own.
We scheduled in this place as our destination to get some proper American BBQ on our recent trip to Chicago.
When we went at lunch it was packed (there are no reservations taken,you go to the kitchen to collect your order) but we got 2 seats at a shared table. From what we ordered:
-- Side of Elote corn =10/10....
Words cannot describe how amazing this restaurant is. The service was outstanding and you could see the love and care, staff members have for their craft. There was pure joy in the eyes of those making our salads and apps and after tasting what they created - WOW! We (4 people) elected to sit at the bar and I am...
"Great food, great service, great decor, big bill"

Small portion shared dishes are hot and I have mixed emotions about them. That said, Momotaro presents an asian twist with the potential for great tastes. The easy part: all sushi was wonderfully fresh, some of the best I have had. Every dish was very good though not quite as heated as one would expect. The hard part: our son...
Great job Ace Hotel. The staff was very nice and the hotel was top notch. I loved the cool décor and drinks at the rooftop bar (Waydown). We had breakfast at City Mouse and loved the Gas Station Sandwich.
It's so modern, nice and clean. The staff was very professional. The breakfast was good and a nice treat to be free. Area where food is located was kept clean staff out there to refill and keep order. This is definitely added to my list of places to frequent when I come visit the Chi?! I didn't feel like taking...
My husband and I stayed here for the second time in late dec 18/early Jan 19. Great stay in a huge one room suite. Wonderful hotel with great staff! All of them from front desk to food staff were friendly and helpful wanting to ensure a pleasant stay. Highly recommend this hotel and so happy we found it as we...
Great place to have a drink. Love the vibe and decor. Sat in lobby next to bar... high back chairs...view of street, and they make a solid Old Fashion. However, thought the price of the drink at $18/each a bit high.
My stay here was ideal since was in walking distance to the training workshop I attended. Very clean room and top notch breakfast at the hotels restaurant. Beautiful view of The Sears Tower or whatever they call that building now😊
