McCormick Place - neighborhood/hotels nearby....

Wife is attending a Conference there in April, so we decided to make it a mini vacation. Not familiar with the area, but in looking for hotels nearby, what neighborhood should we be looking for - Loop/Grant Park, N. Michigan Ave, etc.

TIA

If you want to stay close to the convention the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is supposed to be nice and it's right next door.

If that isn't so important, I'd say N. Michigan Ave is the place to be. There are a lot of great restaurants, bars, and shops. Another good area is called River North. That area is located between the loop and N. Michigan Ave.

The Loop/Grant Park area is ok, but it's generally business high rises. There are some good restaurants and theatres, but for the most part it's where we work. Some may disagree though.
