So I finally arrived in Chicago, picked up my luggage and took the shuttle to the car rental place. The Avis girl was less than friendly and certainly ****-poor at giving directions so after taking an impromptu tour of the city, (read: an hour of driving around like a lost idiot) I eventually found my hotel. My choice of hotels was serendipitous. …

Al and I drew short straw ..other two got bedroom and en suites ....we got small bedroom but still a separate bathroom in hallway.

... aquarium but it's been almost impossible to get tickets for that at the last minute and all the reviews say that the wait in lines can be up to an hour and a half long if you decide to get tickets when you get there.

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.
