Looking over Chicago from north to south, I couldn't have picked a worse location myself.
I'm sure the allure of downtown, coupled with the fact that within 5 blocks of Willis Tower you have access to Chicago Union Station, the Eisenhower Expy, and Kennedy/Dan Ryan Expy, not to mention a Blue Line El stop that can take you to ORD if need be had something to do with it.
