My friends and stayed 3 nights at the Hilton Hotel on the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago...the one on 10E Grand. (apparently there are quite a few Hiltons all close). Checkin was a breeze and the nice guy let me pick which room I wanted and the floor (I'm sure they are all very similar, but hey...can't hurt). Location was great. We were close to the lakes and also the river. On the lobby floor they have a cart of business cards/coupons, def use them, they work! Room was not huge, but def just what we needed and clean. I recommend.
