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.

... against the metro late at night we hailed a cab back to our lodgings. Chicago has some amazing architecture amongst its high rises and Millennium Park, an area full of water features and sculpture on a giant scale, originally created to celebrate the millennium, is a popular meeting place. Almost forgot to mention the world famous Chicago Deep Pan Pizza was created here, not that we had one :/ Too busy a city for us we decide on just a short stay and to move on to see what Detroit can ...
... to be on was an almost impossible task, as the people who were crossing the intersection in front of us did so even when there was no room for them on the other side, blocking both us and oncoming traffic. LA may have bad traffic but driving courtesy is fairly commonplace, and I had not seen disrespectful driving like this in the US, ever. Even as drivers got stranded in the middle of the intersection for almost the entire time our light was green, those behind them took no ...
... Gang Architects, with James Loewenberg of Loewenberg & Associates as the Architect of Record. The building is topped by a terrace with gardens, gazebos, pools, hot tubs, a walking/running track and a fire pit. The Aqua was named the Emporis Skyscraper Award 2009 skyscraper of the year, and was shortlisted in 2010 for the biannual International Highrise Award. The name 'Aqua' was assigned as it fits the nautical ...
... When we finally got shakely to the hotel, we dumped the car in the nearest and most expensive parking just to save me driving anymore, tried to get Chicago style deep pan pizza, only to find that everywhere was shut and had to get a takeaway pizza that was no different or better than any one you might get from your local takeaway on a Saturday night after a heavy session on the drink. So, we called it a night relatively early, somewhat missing out ...
13th December - Friday
Fancy us traveling on Friday the 13th!!!
We walked up to the bus stop, the bus arrived on time, it wasn't full when it picked us up and we got on with our bags. All was good till the bus started filling up and then a guy in a wheel chair got on and everyone was packed in. Two ladies behind use kept saying to each other "bags should not be allowed on the buses" so we just kept our head down but then came our stop ...
