    Was there for the C2E2 convention and enjoyed the space. Easy to navigate and full of a lot of fun architecture and art.

    Ask for the Art brochure and Guided Tour brochure at the main desk, and then explore. The building itself is gorgeous, and then there is all of the art inside… and then books! Truly a terrific place to spend a few hours. Make sure to go all the way up to the Winter Garden.

    Features single exhibits rather than museum approach
    Exhibit “Drawn To War” a comprehensive review of the career of famed WW 2 and later political cartoonist Bill Maudlin

    Good displays in pleasant bright airy space overlooking Michigan Ave and Grant Park

    In a stunning architectural gem, take time to check out lobby especially ceiling

    Decent runway views with ample seating and a full bar. There is food and beverages available with admission (59 USD without membership or travel class) while top shelf alcohol comes with additional cost. Free food is the standard chips, cookies, bread, jams, etc, and for beverages, there is hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and 2 espresso machines with different choices. This place and cost makes sense if you want to spend a long time at the airport with nowhere to go. 59USD is also worth it if you, like me, want to potentially avoid spending more tourist-ing around Chicago.

    The tour guide: Kineret Jaffe was informative, kind and patient with any and all

    questions. It is hard to believe this was free. This is a definite must do in Chicago.

    The weather was cooperative for an outdoor walking tour

    Had a great time seeing all the pics, hearing the music of, and viewing the exhibits of the gear/musical instruments/clothing/diaries, etc of the Stones. I grew up listening to them and it brought back some great memories. Seeing their stuff up close and personal was really cool. They had Keith's diary, lyrics notebooks from Mick, set lists, etc. We cool to see that they even have flair when their handwriting! Felt like I have a better understanding of their roots

    As expected this is always one of the more crowded then just about any other United Club in the U.S. Of course my last visit was during a snow storm in Chicago which caused the board to turn orange.

    As far as food, it is what it is, slim picking but decent flavor.

    If you are a member then fine, but I would not pay the day rate to enter.

    The Visitor Center is a bit of a work in progress. There are displays set up around the building, including a model of the town, photos, some Pullman Car items, and things like that. Maybe, in the future, once they get the large building refurbished, they can have a Pullman Car display. Just because it isn't all new and shiny, doesn't mean it's not interesting.

    This is home to the historic pumping station. Also acts as a small information centre and little library. Seems odd this survivor from the 1800'S amidst massive skyscrapers.

    This building is spacious and very sunny (on a nice day), multiple large halls with big windows to let the light in

    This particular location is very fun and the location is accessible to the Chicago River Branch as well. The Red Line CTA train is nearby. In addition, there are plenty of shopping markets to buy anything that you might need.

    I spend much more time at the B6 club due to the flights I usually take. But when I am in C this is a pleasant place to spend my time. It is small, but I don't really see it being as busy as the B-18 club, which is sometimes too full to even enter. You're not getting a gourmet meal here but I've had some tasty soup and pasta and other items here. It's a nice place to sit back and relax before the flight.

    I recently signed up for French classes here. So far so good. I’m not disappointed. I am just confused by the class schedule- system-numbering... and this location doesn’t have its own parking but they validate parking tickets ( for $9)
