This image of the interior staircase was taken in the Hampton Inn Chicago Downtown/N Loop/Michigan Ave. When you enter the building, make your way to the Mezzanine floor, which is the second floor. The elevators to get to the second floor will be on your left. Another staircase is just past the elevators and you can take that instead of the elevator to go up one floor.
Once you make it on the Mezzanine level, head back towards the entrance and you'll see another staircase on your right. It's usually locked from the ground level so you have to go up one floor to access it. Once you're in, you'll climb up one flight of stairs to reach the top of the stairs. Look down and you'll have this view of the spiral.
