Best Rooms: Rooms ending in *01 (e.g. 2001, 2301) are suites facing Millennium Park, Grant Park and Lake Michigan, but they're close to the elevator.
Best Rooms: If you're looking for the best view, it's best to book a Chicago River View room. All standard guest rooms have city views, but the views may be blocked by surrounding buildings.
4 star hotel
Area: Near North Side
0.29 mi from city center
Best Rooms: The hotel isn't known for its views since it's surrounded by taller buildings. But if you get up to floor 14, you might get a partial river view from the southwest side, or a city view from the northeast side.
Best Rooms: The *01 suites (e.g. 901, 1101, 1401) are located on the corners and provide the best views of the city, albeit partial (because of the way the building is shaped, you won't find any unobstructed or full views at this property). Looking south, you can see Water Tower Place and the Hancock Center.
Best Rooms: Request a room with a view of the Chicago River on floor 5 or higher; you can get this view from most room types, except the suites.
2.5 star hotel
Area: Gold Coast
0.22 mi from city center
Best Rooms: Among King rooms, request one ending in *04 or *11 (e.g. 504, 611) on the front side to enjoy a nicer view of the area.
