Had the rare opportunity to see the Hotel Intercontinental from the Chicago Tribune Tower observation deck a few weeks back.

One of the coolest discoveries: The top of the onion dome was designed to be a docking station for dirigibles (before they fell out of fashion after that little incident with the Hindenburg).
