Sunday 26/10/08 Sightseeing in Chicago

We woke at 6am (11 am my time) & went to have a FULL breakfast- I really needed some decent food and the portions were very large. Then we went back on the metro (Blue line) into the centre of Chicago, arriving at 8am. It was a beautiful, sunny day, which is lucky for October. We knew it would …

Saturday 25/10/08 Arrival in Chicago

Steve was already in Chicago, having been at a training session all week, so I was flying out to join him. It was an interesting flight for me- I sat between a (gay) couple of Chicagoites who were interested in the forthcoming election (of Obama) and keen to discuss it. They gave some tips on …

... rough itinerary, and then physically packing.

Much of logistics and having a rough itinerary will overlap. Shots, prescriptions, visas, and travel insurance are probably the most important steps but are actually dependent on your rough itinerary. Many blogs are dedicated to these steps specifically so I will leave that for someone else.

The way I went about deciding when and where I wanted to be was pretty simple. I setup ...

... front door and were greeted by a huge, fat bouncer sitting on a stool who took our cover and let us in. The bar was small, dark, hot and loud with a long old style, well worn bar along the side. We ordered some buds and coronas and found three stools. The first act was a band with four members jamming out some loud old style blues. We were all tapping our feet to the music as it was super catchy. Next up the same band was joined on stage by a large, sassy, 70 year ...

    Hadn't appreciated how far out this was nor the walk to public transport (which wasn't working well with buses replacing trains and limited late night availability)
    However hotel bedrooms comfy and food (breakfasts only) nice though portions too large for our taste.
    Staff seemed OK but we didn't really need them.

    Nice Refuge When Stranded in Chicago!


    We had several flights cancelled, and had been travelling for a long period of time when the airline offered us a "discount" rate at the Wyndham. We took it and it was a very pleasant stay.

    OLD Holiday Inn that needs transformation.


    This former Holiday Inn must be under going a Wyndham transformation/re-branding... but they have a long way to go. The bathroom/shower was terrible, no phone at the work station, and the Wyndham By Request program not yet really functioning so the room not personalized, if you're used to Wyndhams... this is very disappointing. Noise of traffic outside crazy... big room, but outside the room... a "dive feel." Faded carpets, peeling wallpaper, 80's lighting...

    VECCHIO Holiday Inn che necessita di rinnovo


    Questo ex Holiday Inn si sta trasformando in un Wyndham/ ne ha ancora per molto. Il bagno/doccia erano terribili, senza telefono alla postazione di lavoro, e il programma Wyndham By Request non ancora del tutto funzionante e quindi la camera non era ancora personalizzata, se siete abituati al Wyndhams...rimarrete davvero delusi. C' il rumore del traffico camera grande ma fuori dalla camera... una sensazione di "nuotare nel vuoto." Tappeti scoloriti, la tappezzeria che si staccava, illuminazione anni '80...

    Great big room, big comfy beds. Recommend


    We were only staying one night in Chicago, then back to O'Hare for a flight to Canada. There were no plans to go into the city, so this hotel was perfect. It's close to the airport, a short taxi ride.

    Our room was huge compared to the European ones we had been in. We got a huge queen size bed each! The bathroom was big, there was a big cabinet with cable TV. We slept for 14 hours, the beds were so comfy. Reception staff were friendly and helpful.

    Next day, to pass time til our flight out, we just walked around area. It gave us an insight into an above average Chicago suburb, very nice houses. Saw my first squirrel. We ate a meal in the restaurant attached to the hotel. The food and service were great. There was a free shuttle to the airport.

    Great proximity to L Train


    We just got back from this hotel. Overall, it was a good visit. The 1st room they gave us was occupied, the 2nd didn't have the fridge we requested. The 3rd room was just right. The breakfast buffet was good, plenty to eat and good quality (bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, cinnamon french toast, potatoes, oj, coffee, water). They gave us a lift to L & back, and even let us park in the lot and use the shuttle on the day we checked out, for one last trip downtown. I would definitely stay there again. Everyone was helpful and friendly.

    Will look elsewhere next time...


    I booked this hotel based on location from a conference the next morning. One night stay. Booked a king size, non-smoking. Arrived to see the system had me booked for a smoking/double bed room. Front desk was able to find a non smoking/double that was still available.

    Clean and convenient


    We spent a weekend at this hotel and were very pleased with the room and especially the helpful staff. The hotel is convenient to I90 and also to the train -- a park & ride is just a few blocks away. The room was very clean and spacious -- better than I would have expected. I wouldn't recommend the adjoining restaurant. Would definitely stay here again as an inexpensive alternative to Loop hotels.

    Great staff, location and rooms


    Held a conference here May 14 & 15, 2005. Reservations handled well, guest rooms spacious, clean & well appointed. Very fast WIFI "Free" internet access (unlike Doubletree & Hyatt). Location XLNT. Free shuttle service to subway. Domenicks supermarket w/in 2 blocks of hotel. Market has everything including sushi, organic fruits/veggies, wonderful sandwiches & Starbucks. Mom & Pop breakfast/lunch diner 1 block away. Geno's pizza w/in walking distance or hotel shuttle w/take/pick you up. Rosemont area w/in area where hotel shuttle w/drop off/pick up free.

    High Quality Room In Chicago Surburb


    What a great place. 24 hour shuttle service to O'Hare. Walk 2 blocks through a safe neighborhood to the Cumberland subway station, and be in the Loop in 30 minutes. This surburb of Park Ridge is extremely safe, full of private homes, and is a pleasure to visit. The hotel is spotless, rooms are big and clean. Next door is Hooters, and across the street is Spuntino Pizza & Pasta. This location near the airport can save you big bucks, since Chicago hotel rooms are among the highest in the country. Save, and walk to the subway. Within a reasonable time- you can exit right in the loop on the convenient CTA Blue Line.
