    Watch out on weekends - some elevators only work on weekdays. Go to the main lobby if in doubt.

    This place is huge and the time I was there it looked pretty empty. They should make more use of it cause the location and views are amazing. Read more

    Take unnecessary elevator trips during Neocon and give out bad directions "try the better coffee place on the 8th floor. No line!"

    Loading out from Art Chigaco was an exceptionally unpleasant experience due to the unclear communication from the loading area and the rudeness of security, especially on the south side.
