    When we were there we did the aquarium, Navy Pier, the golden Mile, and a tour of Wrigley field. My wife has limited walking ability so we took Uber when we needed to travel. The lake front is not far from the Hotel.

    Willows is 1.1 miles away from the De Paul Campus in Lincoln Park. You can definitely walk there, should be about a 20 minute walk and a nice area to walk thru.
