    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.

    ... flight gets us to Chicago in time for rush hour so it is good advice from Mark to simply take the blue line train to the city. From the train we can see the traffic stalled in both directions. We have a simple walk from the station to our hotel in the tall black building across the road from the Trum(p) Tower. Local joke there.

    The Langham is luxurious and our room is well away from the lifts which is not a good thing if you are wheeling a ...

    ... us.". He spoke of the story of coming to faith in Jesus. It all began in 1977 on a visit with his wife to Jerusalem. It was on a tour, led by a Jew who was not a Christian, that stirrings of God began in the Garden of Gethsemane. He said, "Here Jesus actually stood.". That moment would hound Patrick for two year until the hound of heaven would grab hold of his life. He is one of those living stones that are joy to stumble over.

Consequently, this lead to delays in its design and construction but thankfully lead Trump to create a more subtle building which was more coherent with the surrounding urban landscape. The cruise slowly carried us ‘down’ river and past countless impressive buildings. Our guide explained how architecture changed over ...

    ... I finally decided on the white ‘road’ jersey (away shirt to this who follow football) which then left me a decision as to which player I wanted so it was now a decision between Brandon Marshall or Brandon Marshall so I decided to go with a white Brandon Marshall jersey. Despite the lack of choice in white I was quite happy as this was one of the players that I wanted. Unfortunately, being surrounded by all things Bears I couldn’t just leave it at a ...
