  • If you want to visit a traditional yelling paper trading floor, it's gone. If you're a rich person, interested in monetizing farm labor and risk, probably a fine place to be.
  • The Cere's restaurant has pretty good food, but people do not go here for the bar food, they go here for the drinks. They don't server Jack and coke, they serve Jack, with a can of coke on the side. The drinks are about $10, but you definitely get what you pay for! They definitely DO NOT water down any of their drinks.
  • Nice place. Good security
  • A historic building with great significance today still.
  • An awesome building that is a must-see. A great piece of architecture!

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
