Visiting Chicago: Hotels, Restaurants, Attractions

Hotels

If this is your first time for visiting The John Marshall Law School and the city of Chicago in general, your best option would probably be to choose a hotel close to the school. JMLS is located in the heart of downtown, which allows a stay at a nearby hotel to be close to many tourist attractions. If you have a little extra time besides visiting JMLS, there is a lot that can be experienced from staying in a hotel close by to the school. Literally around the corner from JMLS is the hustle and bustle of State street shopping and restaurants. A five minute walk east will bring you to Chicago’s famous Michigan avenue, with Grant Park, Museums and the lakefront just beyond.

Hotels considered closest to JMLS would include:

Most of these lists offer searches based off of detailed search criteria. (i.e. rent range, neighborhood, amenities)

The following are links to various search engines designed for listing available housing throughout the Chicago land area.
