Travelers to this city find that downtown Chicago is friendly and clean; people that you meet want you to share their love of their city! A downtown hotel provides easy access to Lake Michigan in all its grandeur where you can stroll Millennium and Grant Parks to see incredible sculpture and gardens. You are close to the Art Institute of Chicago and Macy's on State Street; and you are just blocks from the Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place, The Shops of Northbridge, and The 900 Shops. Of course there is much, much more with the following attractions also being close to the hotel: Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and Field Museum, and all the great dining, theater, symphony, and opera that comes with a major US city.
