  • Massive and beautiful. A true gem of the south side. When I came here it was completely empty and it was nice to just sit and take it all in. Also, make sure to check out the schedule of the chapel, as they hold live concerts.
  • The majestic Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, at 200 feet, is the tallest building at the University of Chicago. The lavender garden is beautiful as are the many wood and stone carvings and the intricate ceiling. Come hear one of the largest carillons in the world. One of the best times to see the Rockefeller Chapel is the one weekend in October each year when it is open to the Chicago Architectural Foundation's Open House Chicago. Amazing.
  • Great decorations inside. Tall and landmark building in the Chicago University.
  • Rockefeller is a beautiful building which hosts one of the largest carillons in the world. The tower which hosts the carillon is the tallest on the uchicago campus, and tours to see the view from the top (along with the carillon bells and the keyboard) run leave from inside the front doors at 11:30 am or 4:30 pm on weekdays and 12:15 pm on Sundays. The rest of the chapel is well worth a visit as well!
  • Beautiful church.

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.
