The Hyatt Regency McCormick Place has debuted a new 460-room tower, offering vivid views of the Windy City's skyline stretching north along Lake Michigan. The property also revamped its 4,000-square-foot Prairie Room for events. The 1,260-room hotel, connected to the city's busy convention center, also sports a newly renovated 25,000-square-foot conference facility.
A great way to "do" the town is via a Chicago CityPass (m.citypass.com
), which confers discounted admission to major draws such as the Hancock Tower and the Arts Institute.
The No. 3 bus offers easy travel from the convention center north to the Lincoln Park district.
