3 star hotel
Area: The Loop
0.03 mi from Bank of America Theatre
Best Rooms: There aren't any real views from this hotel, as it's surrounded by taller buildings.
Best Rooms: The building is only 10 stories, so you may not get panoramic views of the city. However, rooms facing Clark St. offer partial views of the Post Office from the 5th floor and higher.
Best Rooms: As the hotel is only 12 stories tall, good city views may be hard to come by.
Best Rooms: Lakeview King rooms offer fabulous views at a good price but should be booked in advance, because they tend to go fast.
Best Rooms: For views of Lake Michigan, request an even-numbered room on floors 17 - 35 in the West Tower.
Best Rooms: The Premiere Corner King rooms have wraparound views that can include the Navy Pier, the city skyline, Lake Michigan and Millennium Park. If you want a room with a view but need more than one bed, request a Classic Room Special View, so you don't miss out on views of the Navy Pier, Chicago River and Lake Michigan.
