Condé Nast is a big-time travel and destination magazine/website that has come out with a ranking of the top 50 hotels in the entire world, the list includes hotels from New York, Paris, London, and Chicago.

"The Gwen, located on the city’s famed Magnificent Mile and in the landmark McGraw-Hill building—with its 1928 facade wholly preserved—does just that.
