Langham Hotel

Hotel in Near North & Navy Pier

Early starchitect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe originally designed the 52-story, black-box building. His grandson remade the lower floors into the Langham in 2013. The megaswank, 316-room property features some of the biggest chambers in the city; they start at 516 sq ft and go up from there. Groovy sculptures and modern art dot the common areas.

The building's upper floors house the American Medical Association. There's free wi-fi throughout.
