4 star hotel
Area: The Loop
1.16 mi from Film Row Cinema
Best Rooms: The Paramount Spa Suites and the Spa Rooms offer the best views of Chicago River. If you're looking to get a view but don't want to spend extra money on a suite, Classic Rooms with king-size beds on higher floors have good views of the city, and you can request that your room be closer to the Chicago River or closer to Lake Michigan.
Best Rooms: When booking, request a view room facing the north side of the hotel; these rooms look out at the city on from left and Lake Michigan from the right. Rooms facing the south side of the hotel have a view of the surrounding suburbs and a partial view of Lake Michigan.
Best Rooms: There are great views of the Chicago River offered throughout the hotel, available upon request.
Best Rooms: There isn't too much in the way of views, but even-numbered rooms on floors 10 and higher are your best bet for views of the city.
