Wanted to see some FLW work and was not disappointed. We were lucky enough to be in the main area when a tour group arrived so got the added history lesson. This plaza is ornate but look from the main area up the stairwell and read the signage. I think FLW was wrong, i would not have covered the pillars as he had...but i love the wood.

This was an excellent tour. The building has a very interesting past and the tour provides a host of information on architecture, history and more...

We did one of the half hour tours of the Rookery and got some great pictures and info on its history. You can stop in ad see the lobby without a tour, but to see the best part (the staircase, in my opinion) you'll need the tour. This building wasn't constructed by FLW, just renovated by him and then restored about 30 years later by one of his students. Beautiful, bright place!

A must stop if you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan as this is the only spot in the Loop that his Wright's stamp on it. He re-designed the lobby and it's quite an interesting effect. You can visit the lobby for free and sign up for tours that take you further into the building.

This is one of those building interiors I've been meaning to see for a long time, mainly for the Frank Lloyd Wright renovation. The roof over the central place is inspired. But what struck me was the entrance before you passed the lifts - you could see some of his Prairie House design in the low roof and small stairways. Amazing.

I have to say, we had the best guide and that's what took this from a 4 to a 5 star review. While the tour stays almost exclusively in the lobby of this building (as it's still a working site), the details and stories we got were well worth the visit. The tour was only about 30 minutes but our guide was willing to chat longer than that, which was nice.

Be warned - this is not actually a FLW building, but rather one he collaborated on renovating after it was built (while this didn't bother us, it was a disappointment for others we overheard).

The history and details the Rookery has are wonderful and inspiring. The gift store is well kept as is the building as a whole.

Parking... parking was rough - many blocks away, in an expensive garage was the best we could do to be on time. Plan to walk and spend some extra cash (ouch). While we very much enjoyed the tour, this might be a dealbreaker to visiting again.

The lobby is wonderful. Spacious and full of light, and the metal work on the stairs and ceiling supports are fabulous

The lobby of the building is very appealing and has a Frank Lloyd Wright storefront. Worth walking through as it is right across the street from Federal Reserve and a 1/2 block from Board of Trade. Lobby desk clerks are generally knowledgable about the building.

Check out the quick tour - it’s a great lesson on the city and the building and the area. The photos you’ll take make it worth the cost!

Just another amazing bit of Chicago architecture. We covered this on one of our architecture walking tours. Just fabulous.
