Best Rooms: Although the hotel doesn't offer full lake views, the Luxury King rooms on the higher floors, 16 and up, are your best bet for a partial lake view. If you can spring for a suite, consider the Prestige Suites; these are corner rooms, with numbers ending in *08 (e.g. 1708, 2008), which offer partial lake views and a view of Hancock Tower.
Best Rooms: Booking a Deluxe room will guarantee a high floor, as rooms in this category are only found on floors 22 - 26. On these floors, the rooms facing east offer the best city views of the Gold Coast neighborhood.
Best Rooms: Grand Deluxe Rooms are the most popular for a view because they face Michigan Ave. and the Water Tower.
Best Rooms: For the best views of the lake and Michigan Ave., be sure to book one of the Park View King rooms or the Executive Suites. You'll also want to get up to at least floor 11 for the best vantage points.
