John Hancock Center, Chicago Reviews

  • Great view of city at night. Offers a different perspective of the city in comparison to Sears Tower. The queue at the bottom floor was a breeze and staff was nice. You have the opportunity to get pictures, you know, tourist stuff. There is a gift shop upstairs with a full bar. Great place to have a drink with a wonderful view. They offer an amusement that tilts you out over the street. Not my cup of tea but looks fun. Would recommend!

  • Best view of Chicago. The elevator ride is fast.... One of the fast in the world. There are so many great views to see and to photograph. They offers enormous touch pads where you can identify the sites you are looking at. The time capsule display was quite interesting and worth having a look.

  • I went at night for a bit of a different view. It was a cool experience seeing how lively Chicago is at night. You can walk around the entire floor, so you can get views of Chicago from all sides. Little pricey, but Chicago has a good skyline, so it’s worth it to check this out. I'd recommend doing either Sears or Hancock. Both are good. And both offer different vantage points of the city, but they're not different enough to warrant making two separate trips.

  • Great view of the city! Awesome place to grab a drink and watch the sunset. We thought we the price was reasonable (we were tourists) and the new was just stunning. We paid extra to do the "tilt", using hydrolics they tilt you out over the city. It wasn't very intense but standing in the line watching we thought it was going to be! You can also go to a free bar with an awesome view if you don't feel like paying to go to the main deck. Again, highly recommended for sunset! The only downside was the lines to get in the elevators (both up and down) and the cost of the drinks.

  • We ate at the Cheesecake Factory located on the bottom floor! It was amazing! This place is great to visit at Christmas time with the kids. There is a huge model train in the lobby and Santa is on the top floor! It makes for some great pictures!
