You’re unlikely to encounter a bad view at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, but the best ones come from the rooms that face east. They give you a look at Lake Michigan and the Chicago River — a real treat, especially if you can catch the sun rising through the 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s also fun to watch the boats full of tourists cruising along the river on architecture tours, and in the summer, the rooms give you a front seat to the Navy Pier fireworks.
If you can’t swing river-view accommodations, ask for a room on one of the top floors (the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel goes up to the 27th floor, while the rest of the 92-story building is residential apartments), which will let you peer down to the busy downtown area. For a primo vista, book the Deluxe King City View or Deluxe King River View rooms — they offer more window space with larger panoramic views of the city and the river.
There’s no such thing as a bad view at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago. Every guestroom features 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that make up the entire exterior wall of their room. Guestrooms look out on to Lake Michigan, the Chicago River and the famous city skyline. When making a reservation, guests will know right away which view they are reserving, as the view type is part of the room category. For example, rooms will include a description as either: Lake View, River View or City View in the name.
While every view is stunning and each has special features, one of the more exciting views is certainly over Lake Michigan. The suites in the building corner facing east offer a perfect view of Navy Pier. This view is perfect in the summer months for when Navy Pier sets off their weekly firework show at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Guests can curl up on the large sofa and watch the stunning display of pyrotechnics from the comfort of their own room.
