The hotel was very easy to get to. It was right off of the highway. The EL station was only a few minute walk away. Walking into the hotel made you feel like you were in a high class hotel. The decor was great and the staff was very friendly and professional. It was buzzing with people hanging out in at the bar and in the resturant. We got to our room on the 5th floor and the great decor continued. However the door ways were small and also the bathroom was tiny. Looking out our window, I was disapointed. Outside of downtown Chicago the view isnt amazing to begin with but as I looked out It reminded me of a cheep motel. We were looking down on the roof of the rest of the hotel which was 3 stories with outside entrances to the rooms. The pool was directly below us which is encloses in a dome that includes an indoor/ourdoor pool that in connected. What I seen was an empty dirty outside wading pool. We made our way down to the pool to relax before the race the next day but it was anything but relaxing. Tons of kids in the hot tub. People had their music playing and the people that were down in the pool area where not like the ones in the lobby. They had tattoos and peircings on their face and women with half shaved heads. It felt like we were in a compleatly different hotel.

... OK, I guess. Some nice Roman stuff, some good Greek stuff ... but not as much or as good as what is in the Met in New York ... and some quite reasonable Remingtons (Wild West-y paintings and bronzes ... quite famous). Also a fairly good collection of Impressionists.
Lots and lots of 'Modern' and 'Contemporary' so-called 'Art' ... basically modern **** ... but here are some photos of Chagall's 'American Windows' for Jen ... and some Remingtons for the rest of you.
Upon arriving in Chicago it was fairly natural that one of the first things I did was get a traditional deep dish Chicago pizza, before a night recuperating and appreciating an actual bed.
The following day was very long as we walked for over 8 hours to try and see everything Chicago had to offer! We set off early ish after breakfast and made straight for Michigan Ave, and the world famous "Magnificient Mile". Mostly shops and a few attractions, we strolled ...
... leg and quelle horreur- wearing open toed sandals.
So Zac, our new best friend, takes Graham up to the hallowed ground and I stay with the security folk, planning the next move.
It appeared that there was a nice tall building nearby with a viewing floor and one of these glass ledges you can hang out on for a minute or two. It was worth the wait to see Graham white-knuckle for his turn on the ledge! I think they are still trying to ...
... before departure. After 2 1/2 hours sitting on the plane at the gate, we were cleared for takeoff to San Francisco. Finally after seven hours of delayed flights, three hours of re-booking and re-checking of baggage and four cancelled flights we arrived in San Francisco 3 hours later than originally scheduled and at 12:30 am the following day. Although we spent 12 1/2 hours in Chicago, we would have never gotten out had it not been for our Elite Status. First, we ...
... and did not take long to remind us that we are not great aficionados of free or improvisational jazz. It was lovely, however, just sitting in the park (with a few thousand others) on a mild summer's evening. The music finished shortly after 8:00pm and we joined the flood of people exiting the park - said goodbye to Max and Sarah as we neared the hotel and headed to our room for an early night. Tomorrow is expected to be hot (33C) again, we will need to plan our activities ...
