The Loop, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue “Magnificent Mile” shopping, the world renowned Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum Campus, Navy Pier, sports and music venues, and so much more are all located a short and easy traveling distance away. We even have a pub off our lobby for eats and drinks, “The Ambassador Public House” – so pop-in for a pint after a long day of adventuring!
