My wife and I visited Chicago for the first time this past week. We can't say enough good things about our experience in Chicago...The people were just great, so friendly...people actually stopped to ask us if we needed help finding anything and similar experiences throughout our stay. This was also the case with the Courtyard Marriot near micacle mile on St. Claire. The staff was just so friendly, extremely helpful and most accommodating. My wife and I are from upstate New York...we've been to NYC a few times and a fair amount of other locations but
we have to say that Chicago possibly the best city in terms of the people, the architecture, the places, the food, the history. Our room was on the 15th floor with a few of the Chicago skyline, could not see Lake Michigan from our room - but no matter the view was still high rise rich. The bed was really confortable... we like to get a work out in the morning and we found the excerise room to be just what we needed. We did not try the hotel restaurant...as there were just so many placed in Chicago that we wanted to try...but we will say that room service was wonderful. My wife ordered oatmeal with fruit and raved about it I ordered and egg bacon and cheese on an english muffing and it tasted far beyond anything you get in the fast food places...and to my surprise there were two of them there! which I enjoyed! not sure if that was a mistake or not. If you need a cab, the staff is right there to summon one, and we got really nice Cadilac Escalades..big shiny black and spacious and we just felt safe and special in these...and the rates did not seem crazy hit...we spent like $25 to go to the other side of town.. well worth it.
One incredible thing we noticed as we had our window cracked open a pinch was this mourthwatering caramel flavor wafting around our area...there is this wonderful popcorn shop, not just any shot and shoot me for forgetting the name, but they have many flavors of popcorn
and there is always a line of people to get int though it moves fast...we were recommended to try the Chicago mix whichi is two kinds of popcorn mixed together, cheese and warm carmel and buttery and absolutely to die for! Well so what a great time - we would do it all again and make the Courtyard Marriout our place to call home while in Chicago. :)
