As the United States' third-largest city, Chi-Town is confident in its place in the American landscape. And for good reason. The city is known for its pizza, sports, and larger-than-life personalities. The winters aren't for the weak, but there's enough going on from the Miracle Mile to Wrigleyville that you'll barely feel the cold. The city's public transit makes it easy to get around town, so even if you're staying at one of the business hotels near O'Hare Airport, the CTA will get you into the middle of the action in no time. You can see the city skyline-- particularly the John Hancock Center--from many places, but none is better than from the window of one of the downtown hotels in Chicago.
Out & About in Chicago
Regardless of the season, there's always something happening in Chi-Town. From a home base in one of the many Chicago hotels, head to Wrigleyville in the summer and fall for a baseball game. The Shedd Aquarium is great any time of year, and you can't beat listening to music in Millennium Park by "The Bean" on a summer afternoon. The city has a history and culture that it's proud of and staying at one of the boutique hotels in Chicago will give you a chance to explore a little of that history.
Eating and Drinking
Chicago has a restaurant for whatever food you desire. The deep-dish pizza was invented here in the '30s at Pizzeria Uno, and the Chi-Town staple continues to serve the Italian dish. Deals have been made over just as many plates of mouth-watering slabs of barbecued ribs as around the elegant tables of Morton's steakhouse. Choose among the cheap hotels in Chicago--you'll want every dime of your budget to go toward the heavenly Chicago-style hot dog complete with onions, hot peppers, tomatoes, and a pickle. Don't be surprised if you start craving them for every meal.
