Public Chicago Review

With iMacs in the lobby, free Wi-Fi throughout, bikes for the borrowing at the front door, and generously sized, minimalist cream-and-white guest rooms, what was once the slightly faded Ambassador East is now hip and sleek; the location's as stellar as always. And the legendary Pump Room restaurant is still there, but the design is all new. There's also a new fitness center on the 11th floor and a screening room off the Library Bar, with plenty of plush couches. A free breakfast for kids (accompanied by cartoons) fill the space on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
