          A wonderful old world hotel which is spectacularly decorated. We had a massive room on the 5th floor overlooking Lake Michigan. It's situated right on the Magnificent Mile so you can walk to lots of good places. We found the concierge really helpful and arranging tickets for a show for us. Breakfasts were really tasty too with great selections.

          ... was alright, but did not nearly stack up to Chattanooga.

          We decided to go to Field Museum and then have lunch, which was a mistake as the line to get in and the lunch line were equally long. We finally got to sit down and eat. I headed to the bathroom, then was going to meet Erin by Sue the T Rex. She was not there, so I checked the food court and Erin came running up, kind of wild-eyed and asked if I had seen her purse.
