This 1924 original has emerged from two pricey renovations with its interiors modernized, but their Art Deco glamour still intact. The property is an icon even among historic landmarks, though the Jazz Age can't take all the credit for that one. Its Tip Top Tap sign, referring to the former Allerton bar that drew Bing Crosby, Jimmy Stewart and Lucille Ball, is a buzzed-about landmark of its own.
This building was one of the first skyscrapers on Michigan Avenue, and the exhilarating culture of the Magnificent Mile begins right outside its door.
