... online for the aquarium, the 4D show and the Sea Life Show ahead of time to save time. No wait. We hadn't eaten breakfast so we stopped at the cafe on the lower level and had a continental type breakfast. Worked out great. We pet stingrays. We saw a dolphin show. You have to get to the show early for seating and sit on either side of the rocks in the middle. Animals perform near those seats. They have coral reefs, beluga whales and many hands ...

Day 2 in My kind of town

... our minds turn to the forthcoming trip and the journey ahead. Route 66 was the USA's original road trip connecting Chicago with Los Angeles in 1926, a step back in time in small town America. Nostalgia and kitsch will be our constant companions with neon lights, drive in movies, icecream parlours and pie diners on the way. Route 66 was nicknamed the Mother Road during the Depression when migrants from the east drove west ...

On the Trail of the Elusive Pygmy Hippoo

... What could possibly go wrong in a state known for bluegrass, bourbon, and Kentucky Fried Chicken?


The Louisville Zoo is home to two pygmy hippos, Hope and Maji Kitoto. At the time Maji had a wound above his right eye that was being treated twice daily with medicated ointment, so he wasn’t allowed in the water. If you want to torture a hippo, a sure way to accomplish your goal is to eliminate his/her access to water. Poor Maji had dried crusty skin ...

... to buy Terry a beanie, had lunch there, and I bought some pillowcases, as I've decided I don't like using strangers'. Terry was amazed I paid $17 for them, but was impressed when I told him they were reduced from $70.

We all walked down to Willis Tower, and we're suitably stunned by the views. Will be interested to compare today's photos ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Burnham - A Kimpton Hotel Chicago

    Wonderful little getaway

    from

    We were first-time visitors to Chicago for a wedding in mid-July and booked our stay at the Hotel Burnham mainly due to the great reviews.

    It was even better than we hoped! The hotel, while small, has a wonderful "funky-hip-elegant" thing going for it. The staff was extremely helpful and the complimentary evening wine and morning coffee service was a real treat. The other couples in the wedding party stayed at one of the "bigger" hotels a few blocks away, but wished they had follwed our lead! We will definitely make more getaway plans for Chicago and the Hotel Burnham.

    Love the conceirge

    from

    This was the best experience of my life. If it had not been for Tracy Alexander and John Cotter, I would have never gotten a ticket to the OPRAH'S FAVORTIE THINGS show. The two went out of their way to get me a ticket to any show. Let alone "The Show". It was a last minute deal, but they pulled it off! Tracy got us tickets and had no idea what show we were going to. The look in her eyes when we got back to the Hotel to tell her we were at the "Show" was worth a million. She really did her job. They really went out of their way to accomadate us an BOY did they! I not only loved our suite, and the cafe, the Oprah thing, I loved the history of this place, the ATWOOD CAFE , its so beautiful. I was in awe of the whole trip and I will not even consider checking into anoteher place before checking with the staff here first. This is a five star staff.

    Hotel Burnham is perfect

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Burnham over July 4th weekend. It is in a great

    location in the loop, across the street from Marshall Fields. There are

    free trolleys that stop at MF to get on and off for visiting major

    attractions. It was so easy to get around and lots of good places to

    eat. We went to the Taste of Chicago, saw the best fireworks display

    ever.The streets are clean, people are friendly and there is so much to

    do and see. I thought I loved NY but now Chicago is my kind of PLace!!

    The hotel is awesome, the conceirges and staff were wonderful!!! Free

    wine every evening in the hotel lobby and a great restaurant is next to

    the lobby.

    Amazing

    from

    The hotel is amazing. Very cozy and in the heart of everything. The staff was very nice. Wonderful place to stay.

    Unique and Inviting

    from

    I had a wonderful stay at the Burnham. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always attentive. Enjoyed staying in a boutique hotel instead of an impersonal, large hotel. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique experience.

    Wonderful, romantic

    from

    A wonderful weekend romantic getaway. Great views. My wife loved it.

    Burnham Ambience

    from

    What a unique and wonderful hotel. Our suite on the 14th floor overlooked the theater district, Marshall Fields, the Hancock Towner and Lake Michigan through huge picture windows. The location is fantastic, close to public transportation, and accessible via foot to everything in the city. The architectural integrity of the historic skyscraper buidling has been retained throughout and is not at all "kitschy." The room had a CD player, free high speed internet access and neat toiletries. Even the restuarant was good (if a bit pricey). Highly recommended for those who are tired of the big chains, but still want all the amenities.

    Wonderful winter weekend at Hotel Burnham

    from

    My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend at Hotel Burhnam. Service was impeccable, from the kindness of the doorman who took our car when we arrived, cold, tired and frazzled from the snow and rush hour traffic, to the thoughtful desk clerk who promptly poured us each a glass of wine and directed us to the fireplace in the lobby. A birthday card and small gift awaited us in our room, which had a nice view of the park (as requested) and was small but immaculately clean and cozy. Heavy cut glasses, wine glasses, a CD player, and quality toiletries were pleasant surprises. Our request for our car was handled promptly in the morning while we sipped complimentary coffee. When we returned Saturday evening and expressed disappointment at missing the wine social by a matter of moments, the clerk asked our room number and shortly thereafter personally delivered a full bottle of wine to our room! Breakfast in the Atwood Cafe Sunday morning was pricey but excellent, just the perfect splurge for a Groundhog Day birthday! The architecture of the hotel is spectacular and its location, within walking distance of a number of good restaurants, was perfect for our needs. We hadn't been in Chicago in 16 years and if we ever return, we will stay again at Hotel Burnham. It was warm and inviting and its staff gets our compliments and thanks.

    Satisfactory for the Money

    from

    Good location, good restaurant, good value. Decent but not stellar service. Intimate, sometimes crowded lobby. This rooms in this hotel are pleasant but small. We were four ladies to a room, which was too crowded. It would be adequate for two. The beds were extremely comfortable and the decor classy, but the only mirror was in the bathroom. Also, we had to call three times to have a fourth set of towels brought up. Get a room on a higher floor to avoid street noise.

    Hotel Burnham a Great Deal

    from

    The Hotel Burnham was worth every penny. The cost is reasonable for the area and the accomodations are great. It is a recently renovated historical building. I recommend checking out the website for fun. The location is great...it sits on State & Washington directly across the street from the entrance to Marshall Fields and is withing walking distance of everything. The hotel is rather small so the service is great too. I would stay there every time if rooms were available.
