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.

  • The Pritzker library is unrivaled as a study / work space. The Library has an elegant design, quite sophisticated ambience, and also unparalleled views of Millenium park. Didn't expect to find such a quiet oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of city center!
  • Visiting the Museum & Library Admission to the Museum & Library is $5. Admission is free for members and all visitors with active military ID.
  • I visited the Pritzker Military Library during the Chicago Architecture Foundation's Open House Chicago 2013. What a treat! This amazing space is open to visitors for a nominal fee, opening a world of historical books, periodicals and displays highlighting our nation's military history. Colorful posters, photographs and multimedia exhibits will peak your interest in this material, as will the state-of-the-art theater, oral history room and computerized resources. Don't miss the Medal of Honor exhibit to see an actual Medal of Honor on display, as well as an interactive exhibit allowing you to review details of the complete Medal of Honor roll! This is a worthwhile diversion on your visit to the city, allowing you to not only experience the famous Monroe Building, but to take in a cultural museum experience as well.
  • Nice place
  • Great place to see a bunch of history about any American war
