Best Rooms: The Premier Rooms with lake views offer the best views in the entire hotel, which are northeast views that include panoramic views of the city and Lake Michigan. You don't have to empty out your savings to get a great view at this hotel; standard rooms have views looking north, which may provide a partial lake view, and views looking south, which have great views of the city.
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.
Best Rooms: Higher floors facing north offer the best views of Michigan Ave., while the northwest views are of the Chicago River and the Marina Towers.
