It was the perfect location for a summer in Chicago. It was only a 10-15 minute walk to my building every day for work, right across from Grant Park and Millennium Park, and it was easy for people visiting me to find and drive to.
What did you like most?
The rooftop is a great time! I also liked the free popcorn every week and the rooftop party that management held at the beginning of the summer.
What did you like least?
The El is right by the building, but you get used to the sound after a few days.

I had a great experience this summer in the Buckingham. It was a perfect location in the South Loop for my job as well as having fun. A good restaurant or bar was never more than a brief walk away and we could easily take an Uber to any of the other neighborhoods or beaches. The building itself was fantastic and they had the best staff. They were always very kind and courteous and I loved seeing them every day. Rooms were spacious and modern and having access to the top-floor lounge and other amenities was a very nice perk.
What did you like most?
I liked the staff and the view the most. We were fortunate enough to live on the top floor and the thing I miss the most is the view. It is a great view overlooking the Buckingham fountain and Lake Michigan. You're just a brief walk from Soldier field and the Aquarium if you head South and Grant Park is straight ahead and then the beaches up North aren't too bad of a stroll either. Overall I miss the view from our living room the most and the friendly staff.


The Loop

The Loop is the heart of downtown Chicago and gets its name from the loop that the El trains form before jetting off to their respective paths out of the city. The Loop is heavily commercial, as companies like United Airways, Northern Trust, Boeing, and more have offices here.

If you are planning on living in The Loop, be prepared for a high-rise lifestyle. The Loop truly is a concrete jungle, and residents of The Loop must have a love for city life. Weekdays in the Loop are the busiest you will see, as Chicagoans from every neighborhood do business in its central location.

Coffee shops and breakfast spots are packed with business people vying to be first in line, and lunch spots are packed with professional lunches. (If you'd like to stay central, but the Loop sounds a bit too hectic, you might like New East Side or South Loop.)

After work and on the weekends, the Loop essentially shuts down. Streets and restaurants that were packed with 9-5ers during the week are now eerily empty. However, Millennium Park is an exception as it sees over 25 million visitors a year and is packed just about every day of the week. Here, people can be seen taking photos of Cloud Gate, enjoying open-air concerts, wandering Maggie Daley Park, and enjoying the lake views.

Although The Loop is highly commercial, it still contains historical buildings such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Harold Washington Public Library, Maggie Daley Park, and the printing houses of Printer's Row to the south.
