Michigan Avenue Bridge Reviews & Ratings
Michigan Avenue has always been one of my favorite walks in Chicago. But something special happens when you cross this bridge - at least for me. You get to look east and west and see (and feel) the beauty and energy along the Chicago River. You also see the amazing architecture right there - Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower and Trump Tower a short distance away. You begin to realize why this is called the Magnificent Mile, because it is!! This bridge was a significant piece of the vision for Michigan Avenue.
DuSable Bridge is fantastic if you find yourself standing on one side of the river, longing to be on the other side of the river. As far as quality, the bridge appears to be structurally sound, I've never seen it collapse. I'm not an engineer but I imagine this bridge could hold a dozen or even two dozen people without falling down into the river. Five stars.
Its a bridge it gets you across the river... The stone work on the bridge posts is amazing and it is a lost talent in today's high speed hurry up and get things done world. The views from the bridge were spectacular.
Great location downtown. Right opposite house of blues. Rooms are large and comfy. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. The bathtubs are slippery, hence they provide a new slip mat- so make sure to use it! No problems with wifi. The gym was quite well equip whereas the concierge lounge could do with more variety of snacks and drinks..
The original founder of Chicago a colored man. Good looking statue set in front of the river. People learn historical facts of real life people.
