A downtown hotel means you have easy access to Lake Michigan, Millennium Park, and Grant Park. You are close to the Art Institute of Chicago and Macy's on State Street; and you are just blocks from the Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place, The Shops of Northbridge, and The 900 Shops. Of course there is much, much more with the following attractions also being close to the hotel: Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and Field Museum, and all the dining, theater, symphony, and opera that comes with a major US city. Travelers to this city find that downtown Chicago is friendly, clean, and safe. Everyone you meet is helpful, and they want you to share their love of their city!

"If you are in security, IT, upper management, or privacy/compliance teams, you should take this class (SEC401) to understand all the important essentials of security. Great class and instructor. Class: $4,145, Exam: $549, all the material I have learned: PRICELESS." - Mary Ann Bender, Allstate Insurance Co.

It covers the most important to have in place, necessary elements of the control, how to measure, audit and report on them, so they can be adjusted and made effective for your organization." - Kelly Murphy, Assurity Life Insurance Company
