Hi, we're considering visiting for Chicago for the first time the first weekend in December. Arriving on Friday and leaving Monday. Looking for recommendations for hotels, restaurants, bars, shows, tours, etc... We want to be in the middle of it all, so to speak. Anything we simply can't miss? We're looking to spend around $250 a night...will that get us into a nice hotel? I want something better than an Embassy Suites, but does not have to be as nice as a 4 Seasons-type of hotel. Anything you can recommend is appreciated. Thanks in advance!! We're in our mid 40s to early 50s if that helps. We're also looking for really nice bars, jazz clubs, piano bars, etc..
