Today it’s #BikeToWorkDay and thousands of people across the country are participating by taking a break from driving their cars or hopping on public transportation.
Last September, Chicago was voted America’s most bike friendly city by Bicycling Magazine, so it’s easy for tourists and Chicago natives alike to take advantage of our city by participating in #BikeToWorkDay.
Divvy, the bike sharing company, is also very prevalent around the city, with more than 580 stations in Chicago, Oak Park and Evanston.
If you’re looking to take a ride today, there is a Divvy station just steps away from our hotel at Wells & Huron Street.
Sushi lovers, rejoice! Taketei Sushi, an Edgewater sushi favorite, has just moved into our lobby at the start of the month.
Opening its first location in 2012, Taketei is known for “simple rolls and affordable prices,” according to this article spotlighting the restaurant in Chicago Eater.
We are excited to share that the brand new location will also offer room service to guests in our hotel – so you can enjoy the sushi in the comfort of your own hotel room.

We’re proud to be the home of three sustainable art sculptures outside our hotel that greet guests and Chicagoans alike as they walk by.
Loren, the ever-popular 7-foot, interactive “Doorman” and Madeline, Loren’s 8-foot love and “Green Queen.”
We started with Loren in 2010 as our first larger-than-life art sculpture. Then, in 2011 on Earth Day, we added Madeline, who joined Loren and they have been a popular couple ever since.
In 2012, we added Scrappy, the four-legged eco-friendly pup as well.
All three sustainable sculptures were created by a talented artist – Allen Christian of House of Balls.
