Chicago’s only tri-level rooftop is definitely a sight to behold. Located where Fort Dearborn once stood, the building itself is a designated Chicago Landmark. Roman figures are engraved into the stone facade, but the interior is fully upgraded with high design and an elegant feel. The hotel is situated on a corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge, leading to Hubbard Street and Navy Pier. A stay at one of the city’s first skyscrapers will take you back in time.
