Welcome to our Chicago Microsoft Technology Center on the 2nd floor of the Aon Center - here is a floor plan to show you the layout of the floor and where the restrooms are. The large rooms on the top of the floor plan are the MPR (Multi Purpose Rooms) - the entire floor is open with meeting room names outside (a monitor as you exit the elevator bank has also been added to indicate what room and direction you should use for a meeting).
