The Inside Scoop by our Local Expert
Willis Tower, formerly named Sears Tower, is a 108-story 1,451 feet skyscraper in Chicago, IL. Currently, Willis Tower is the tallest building in the US. Catch a great view of the building staying at The Silversmith Hotel & Suites, located in the heart of the city next to the Civic Opera House, Union Station, and the Chicago Amtrak Station. Stay in their spacious rooms and make sure to request a room away from the front of the hotel because of the train noise. If you want to experience more of Chicago's history, make your reservations at the Hampton Majestic Chicago Hotel, less than half a mile from the tower with a great complimentary breakfast and located right above the Bank of America theater, perfect for catching a show. If you're looking for something different in the "Windy City", these Hotels do not disappoint.
