Best Rooms: There are no real views offered at this hotel, as it's surrounded by the parking lot.
4 star hotel
Area: Near North Side
1.26 mi from Harpo Studios
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.
4 star hotel
Area: The Loop
1.31 mi from Harpo Studios
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: Only ten stories high, you won't find any great city views. Try to stay on the east side of the hotel for at least a view of Wabash Avenue.
Best Rooms: If you're looking for the best view, be sure to book a Cityview suite, as they overlook N State St. for a great view of downtown Chicago.
Best Rooms: Most views are obstructed by surrounding buildings; however, suites facing east may offer a better view.
