    We have stayed in the hotel and the motel. I prefer the motel. You have your own door and get to avoid elevators. Newly redone but in a 60's theme. Very clean. Plenty of space. Refrigerator and microwave. Hairdryer. Nice shampoo and conditioner plus soap. Table for work or eating at. Nice flat screen tv. Air conditioning works excellent. Extra pillow and blanket available already in the room. Will stay again. Love this place. Attached restaurants are excellent and I recommend those as well. Parking included. Great neighborhood. Worth a stay!

    Stay in the motel for a charming experience. You have your own door to the outside and avoid elevators. Redone recently in 60's motif. Refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, table for work, nice flat screen, coffee pot. AC works great. Extra pillow and blanket in the room. Decent size closet and huge chest of drawers. Definitely worth a stay. We will always return.

    Yay we are going to Chicago today!! Happy dance!! We get a cab to the airport and just as we get there Shannon notices that he does not have his phone (his lifeline) so Clint rings the hotel and of course no there is no phone left here or in the room (very strange considering we only left there 20mins ago and Shan went from the room to reception …

    Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright

    ... also visit the museum and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, but you can also just take a walk in the town and see houses built by him. His style is the Prairie Style and quite frankly I didn't like. Houses look like fortresseses and have very small windows. But well, everyone has different taste ;)

    Oak Park is definitely worth a ...

    ... dogs with Julie and Sandy, but they were collecting them all up and removing them. Got in there just in time yesterday it seems. We did intend to walk the rest of the way to Navy Pier, but we hit a dead end, so jumped in a waiting taxi to save time instead. The driver, bless her, did point out the stairs to us, as an FYI for next time, when she started moving hehe. Unfortunately, it's out of season for the Navy Pier, and ...

    ... adult visitors that they are standing somewhere else? This would be very confusing for young ones trying to hone their location skills. Later she said, "I tell my adult visitors that the vintage El car is here (pointing to map) on the second floor..." As a teacher, I can only hope she isn't telling the children that the El car is somewhere else, or their educators will have quite a bit of 'unteaching' to do. We began our own tour of the museum with ...

    In the words of U2, "it's a beautiful day". I'll definitely have to slap on extra sunscreen today. I get myself ready and head off to Lollapalooza, day 2.  With the way my feet and legs were after yesterday's experience, I really can't be bothered walking all that way again, so I splurge and catch a taxi.  I'm lucky and get a great taxi driver and we chat all the way. I give him a good tip and he seems very pleased shouting out to me a few times ...
