What Our Guests Are Saying

Downtown Chicago is home to some of the most stunning buildings in the world.  Ever since it was reborn after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the Second City has been at the center of architectural innovation.  After all, we invented the skyscraper! Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis B Sullivan, Mies Van de Rohe, Daniel Burnham, and Jeanne Gang all made their mark here.
