Decent hotel, great attractionsFlag review
The Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago is an above average hotel for a couple staying there, but we took a teenage son who wasn't as impressed as we were. It was nice and clean, but we didn't spend an inordinate amount of time at the hotel. Instead, we only slept there and spent the rest of our time going to attractions. My teenage son loved all the places we visited and we enjoyed being tourists in the town in which I grew up but no longer live. Perfect for a long weekend getaway for a family.
Tips for Families
The area that the Hard Rock Hotel is in is perfect for a summer vacation, even if you live near the city. It's centrally located and close to so many places that it makes for a great "home base". Attractions that are close and worth the visit are Millennium Park, Shedd Aquarium, and Navy Pier. Make sure you see the spouting faces at the park on a hot day to cool your family off during the day.
