          Good Location - a short walk to the Magnificent Mile and a short bus ride to the Navy Pier. Bus stops out front provide quick bus service to other tourist areas. This hotel was one of the more affordable "family" hotels in the downtown Chicago area. By "family" I mean having actual space to give us separation space after long days of doing the tourist thing. That being said, there was a lot of kids in the hotel as there seemed to be some event that brought them there in bunches. The lobby was noisy but I didn't hear them in our rooms.
          Hotel is clean. I did have a light bulb that was not working when I arrived which I didn't find out about until I laid down to rest - this required a late night maint. visit which was irritating.
          The free breakfast was excellent. Pleanty of options, but the line for the freshly maid omelette was long every morning. However, the terrific breakfast staff was extra friendly and went out of the way to aid or make special requests. They were, in a word, Excellent! Whatever they get paid, they deserve even more!
          Biggest inconvenience was that getting to your room requires two different elevators. But this maybe to restrict non-customers from roaming around.
          Overall, if I return to Chicago with my family I would return to this hotel.

          We woke to a torrential down pour which
          Pickles took one disapproving look at before deciding that the cheap
          motel we had stayed at for the night was the best thing sliced bread.
          After bundling him in the van we headed for downtown Chicago for a
          quick visit.

          Chicago has a wonderful mix of new and

          seemingly slapped onto the top of old. There ...

          Our day started off way too early after our late night, but we managed to get on the road by 6:15. Thanks again to the Sochor family for having us. We did pretty well until I-65 turned into a parking lot for over an hour. It was another big day of driving so, unfortunately, there wasn't an opportunity to make up much time. Turns out it was a semi with a blown tire and because of the construction they weren't able ...

          "Those who love teaching, teach those who love learning"

          Seeing that young boys face light up after every letter, was the most powerful part of that trip for me, hands down.

          Beijing is
          home to 22 million people. And I thought Chicago was a large city with 3
          million. According to my research on cultural customs, it is a sign of
          politeness to stand close to one another. With that many people do you have a
          choice? It is recommended that visitors do not point and try not to gesture.
          Really? I cannot talk without the use of my hands.
