The place is a historic landmark in the history of Chicago. I attended a rooftop wedding when I was there and it was absolutely stunning in terms of the views. The building is old so the amenities lacked the times that we live in. No air conditioning on the top floors made it almost unbearable with the summer heat and the 3 piece suit I was wearing. Overall, a good experience. I believe they are turning the tower into condos so I was glad to visit prior to the renovation starting.
Great architecture of this historical building captivates every passer by. There are rocks/stones from different sites of various countries across the globe on the building..Most renowned ones are from Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Great Pyramid etc.
Love this building, its history, architecture and so on. Always enjoyable just to be around it browse the gift shop inside.
