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.
Great, amazing museum amassing various interesting works of arts from many periods. Ancient Rome and Far East, european classics, modern-day american arts are just few examples. Museum is well-organized, I’ve spent all day there but wasn’t exhausted or bored. There is also a nice cafe. And don’t forget about a discount for online tickets purchase.

"Cloud with view"
reviewed 2 days ago by marittaharff
I went there in March when the weather was surprisingly wonderful,- perfect blue sky, people in very good mood...before the corona outbreak. The Cloud Gate or 'the bean' how the locals call the sculpture is one of the places in the world which makes people smile. They all love to take a lot of pictures and the sculpture gives you...
Visiting the Skydeck was very impressive. Upon entry, the girl at the admission counter warned us about poor visibility, but we purchased tickets and went up anyway. The view cleared up and was amazing. From the 103rd floor you can see the entire city of Chicago. It was well worth the $26 admission fee.
You will definitely not be disappointed in these donuts even if you have to get up early to get them fresh! Worth every carb and calorie!!! Seriously, get the gluten free chocolate one and you will be in donut nirvana!!
"For authentic Italian in a wonderful setting...."
reviewed 2 weeks ago by DrDaveMc
During our brief visit to Chicago, my wife was determined we find some a great Italian restaurant for our first night. This was close by our hotel (Palmer House), so we strolled over on a quiet (Coronavirus effect?) Saturday night. Honestly, I thought they were closed. There is an upstairs (street level) restaurant that was closed, and the entry to...
Visited the CCR during a short CHICAGO staycation and were pleasantly surprised by the great food, attentive service, and overall atmosphere. Table side bar cart was a fun add, and all staff was extremely knowledgeable about the food, ingredients, and beverage pairings. Extensive wine and cocktail list. A great hidden gem inside a wonderful hotel.
I had thought about staying here for the past month or two, but had always found other hotels with lower rates that suited me well. The rates lowered with the pandemic due to low demand, so I changed my booking for this week to this hotel and I was not disappointed at all.
I booked a standard king room and...

The Kimpton Gray - A Boutique Hotel in the Financial District
In April, we stayed at the Kimpton Gray, in the historic (1894) New York Life Insurance Building, at 122 West Monroe St (corner of N LaSalle St), in Chicago’s Financial District, for several business meetings. This was our first stay at The Gray, but not our first at a...
"I just cannot say enough about how much I love this hotel."

I just cannot say enough about how much I love this hotel.
When we stayed at the Virgin years ago it immediately became my favorite hotel. We actually travel to Chicago now just to stay at the Virgin. The Chambers are hip, spacious and comfortable.... So much so, that I just enjoy just hanging out in our room. It's my...
I write this as we are all amidst a global pandemic. I am in the middle of process moving to Chicago for business. And I ended up not able to go back to NYC as a result.
I can’t say that enough about this hotel and their wonderful staff. Thank you thank you @StJaneHotel. You housed me for past 10...
This hotel enjoys a great location and it is nearby the Magnificent Mile and the Millennium Park. The reception staff is great and super helpful! They made me feel welcome and assisted me with my hotel needs. I would definitely recommend this quaint and classy hotel. I just hope they get me into higher floor next time around!
