Ginormous Kid-friendly Suite!Flag review
First of all, the kid's suite is huge! This place was larger than some apartments that I've lived in! Our son had his own room (regular-sized double room) and it was all suited to make a kid's stay more comfortable. Toys, games, bright colored towels in the bathroom, tub toys, cozy comforters on the bed. He was so excited when he saw the room, then we saw the rest of the suite! Amazing views, lots of space, three bathrooms in total. He loved the pool too, especially getting to wear a kid-sized bathrobe to the pool (too cute!) Free apples at the health club/pool was a nice touch too. Can't wait to go back.
Tips for Families
Great location in downtown Chicago, close to Navy Pier. Plus, good public transportation that will take you anywhere else you'd like to go. Go for the museum experience package. They'll give you tickets to the attraction of your choice at check-in. We saved ourselves a loooong wait at the Shedd Aquarium (line out the door and snaking through the front lawn area, a good 200-300 people we bypassed). Since we already had our tickets, we just went to the entrance inside, got our wristbands, and got right in. Also, if you feel like having a picnic or just eating in non-room service style, Fox & Obel grocery store is nearby. High-end groceries and ready to eat foods, a little on the expensive side, but cheaper than eating out. They also do picnic baskets, call ahead to have it ready and waiting to be picked up.
