The Grant Park Hotel is splendidly located on South Michigan Avenue. It is a three star hotel and belongs to the Best Western chain. We had already flown in from Buenos Aires in time to attend the American Academy of Ophthalmology Meeting which is held every year in any major city in the United States. It is a warm, with excellent views of Grant Park. From the large window of the 5th. Floor where we stayed, we had a beautiful view of not only the park, but the Museum of Natural Sciences and McCormick Place. I don't remember the price right now, but I chose it based on the location to price ratio. Good service, and the rate includes breakfast and there's "complimentary coffee" in the lobby, which was nice because we went in autumn when it tends to be cold in Chicago. Also, this hotel is located on Michigan Avenue, with all those wonderful green parks right in front of it and Lake Michigan behind it, with easy transportation to downtown and you can easily walk to the Art Institute and the Magnificent Mile. Another benefit is that it's down the block from the Chicago Hilton and Towers, one of the sites where a special bus comes to Congress, with different schedules.
The Hilton Chicago is in the cultural part of Michigan Avenue, the famous "shopping street" of Chicago. Directly across it is Grant Park, one of the largest public parks in the U.S. This building dates back to 1927, and everyone from actors and singers, to politicians like Bill Clinton has stayed here. This hotel has reasonable rates, a private safe for guests and every amenity. In addition, the Sightseeing Bus stops at the door, making it very easy to travel to any part of the city. Interestingly, this hotel appears in the movie "The Hunt for the Red Wolf" (1989), Andrew Davis.
I believe that this is a great, super hotel next to the Magnificent Mile and Millenium Park. It's a good hotel that's worth a visit, not just for the magnificent lobby, but the huge rooms with all the amenities, modern design, and furniture. It's one of the classic sites in Chicago, that was constructed in 1925 and was the 27th largest hotel in the world at the time.
