Not a fan and probably won't be back for years until after they complete the tower next door. The proximity to the METRA is really nice though. My room could use a serious update but I figure that's in work eventually. I was woken up...More

I advise you to visit this place.

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.
