Like skyscrapers everywhere, you’ll come to this place for it’s awesome observatory on the 94th floor. For the best views, visit at night. The restaurant here is pretty reasonably priced for the location, so it’s actually quite a good spot to take your beloved out to. Though you’d be charged for the observatory, their skyline bar itself is free, and the view from there is nearly as good. This place usually serves as a good alternative for the Sears Towers, especially since it’s much, much less crowded.

Is a great place to get drunk and wonder around yelling randomly the ghost of Chris Farley is still here! I'm sure Chris enjoys my dedicated memory to him. Nice view to.
Great views, I like that. It's a tourist trap. There are three elevators for the observation deck but they only allow people to use one. We paid $20 and had to wait in line to go up. Worse, the wait to get back down. Twenty minutes in line to get on the elevator.
Great overview of the Northside, and inner downtown Chicago. My visit here was at the spare of the moment while out cycling; luckily i had a lock for my bike, and luckily i didn't stay long because there was a local guy eyeballing my road bike. Anyway, i enjoyed my time here, but now as a resident living here i don't see myself visiting John Hancock again, unless i have family or friends visiting Chicago that want to go up. As a resident, i love the attractions we have in Chicago, but it can be draining on days when places are crowded. John Hancock Tower is a fun, and never forgetting experience, if you are visiting Chicago, while in the Magnificent mile area. Outside of John Hancock Tower there are many other things along the Magnificent mile strip to keep you in love with our city. Some advice! Catch a cab, pedicab, or ride divvy bikes to get around the city to avoid the headache of parking, and prices for parking. There are many other alternatives also, such as bus, trolley, and cta, but I would avoid renting a car if you are visiting. Enjoy!
One of the landmarks of Chicago. 3rd highest building with 100floors and 344m high. Was built in 1965 and designed by Fazlur Khan. You can get good views of this building from Willis Tower skydeck, watertower on magnificient mile or at navy pier.
What a great view of the city. You have to go up to the 96th floor to the lounge and sit at a little table by the windows. This is an incredible experience. You can have dinner on the 95th floor if you wish. There was no fee by the way to take the elevator to the Lounge other than what you paid for food or drink.
