    Very nice place! Professional staff, and Valet! A little pricey. But, it's​ the Congress Hotel! I'd recommend and go again. Next time I'd prefer the middle of Summer. Good weather is something you can't invent ...

    This hotel was not bad, the staff were very nice, however there were a few things that I think made it a waste of money. The location is good as it is literally right across from Buckingham Fountain, but this is a "historic" hotel meaning...More

    Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
    good starting point to sample the city's energy and
    flavor. This central business district boasts
    Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
    shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
    your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
    photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
