    About this area


    In the city center, Congress Plaza Hotel is in Chicago's The Loop neighborhood, an area with good shopping. State Street and Navy Pier are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Grant Park and Millennium Park. Check out an event or a game at Soldier Field, and consider making time for Skydeck Ledge, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests love the hotel's convenience to public transportation: Harrison Station is 5 minutes by foot and Harold Washington Library Station is 6 minutes.

        Pretty good overall
