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.

... the basic ticket - there were about seven gazillion add-on "experiences" that I didn't see. It took a good while for the bus to come back, and while I was slowly melting in the sun, I studied my Chicago map. Turns out I didn't actually see Wrigley Park/Field (I REALLY don't know these things) yesterday from the skydeck. A big bunch of neon-orange-wearing summer school kids were on the bus, and one of them kept everyone happy by falling straight asleep ...
... thought this museum was a piece of cake and we would have plenty of time to explore it all as it only had three levels. Well he was wrong and his face when he discovered the museum was huge his face was a picture. He was like a little boy as he ran over to a robot climbing a frame, whilst I ran over to the trains like an excited little girl. We made the careful decision not to lose one another as we would have a hard job finding each other. This reminded me of when my mum use to take me ...
... were given a garden salad to start and it had whole raw baby carrots in it that I didn't fancy. Knowing Wills likes carrots I asked did he want my carrots. He said in a raised voice "I didn't get ANY carrots!". We were sitting opposite two other people and so I just quietly said I only had two and he could have them to which he shouted "You got two! I didn't even get one!". I'm not sure what that couple made of this but I chucked the two carrots on his plate and he piped down.
... a drive around the city, and then we went back to their apartment. They live in a beautiful high rise building that borders the Chicago River canal and Lake Michigan. The apartment is awesome, and it is surrounded by incredible sites, attractions, and restaurants/bars.
Jeff and Malia took us on a walking tour of the city, we had lunch at a little beach restaurant on the shore of Lake Michigan, went to the top of ...
... finish, we came back to the hotel for me to shower and change and then went to go watch football and grab lunch at Blackfinn Ameripub. It was good and they had all the games on. Best thing was that they were able to seat us at a booth so that I could put my legs up.
After lunch, we came back to the hotel (it was around 6pm) and had a quiet night.
