Fodor's Review

This historic property, built in 1895 by D. H. Burnham and Co. as one of the first skyscrapers, retains original details that include Carrara marble wainscoting, terrazzo floors, and large windows in the very heart of the Loop. The design aesthetic inside is pleasantly funky, with Art Deco touches and zebra and leopard prints on the rooms' terry robes. The wrought-iron trim on the elevators is remarkable. On the ground floor, the Atwood Café has a stylish mahogany bar

and serves contemporary American fare, including popular potpies.
