      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.

      Talk to legal counsel about any fears you possess about losing your automobile. You might even get your monthly instalment reduced. Lower payments can sometimes be structured in a Chapter 7 solution. For instance, you will get lower payments for you car if you purchased it before filing and took that loan with higher interests upon it.

      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 ...

      Chicago's weather forecast was for a warm to hot day, with an 80% chance of rain at some stage. With this in mind, we decided to spend the day close to shops - air conditioning and shelter from the rain were our major priorities, the beginning of the long weekend holiday sales was merely coincidental! We began the day with a cappuccino each at Intelligensia (Australasians would call them café lattés, they have no dusting of chocolate or cocoa ...

      Navy Pier was great. No problems getting the 10000 steps today as the walk to end is 1 mile. Fantastic views of the city behind and out to Lake Michigan.

      Took a stroll down the Theatre District. Lots of great buildings. Took the opportunity to have a sneaky ale (it was only 11.30) but it was great. Very refreshing.

      Tomorrow I will take in a bit more of Michigan Ave and have a look at the shops and perhaps do a tour of the Chicago ...
