This was the first time flying with the Grand-baby. Happy to say, she rocked the flight, no issues. :) whew! We also brought along our grown adult children, it had been quite awhile since we travelled as an entire family, and I was so happy to have us all together again.
The W hotel is very pretty! We got adjoining rooms with views of the lake and Navy Pier.
The first day, my husband hit the hair show floor while my daughters, grandaughter and I hit the Indoor pool, (stays heated at a nice 80 degrees). Adjacent to the fitness center, with views of the Navy Pier and a tower that Oprah lives in, top floor, of course.
We ate at a brand new restaurant, Hoits
We ate out with our Alterna friend, Marta at
We Hired a private car to take us around the town on our last day to see the sights, the tower, the bean, tried out an old trend, Pizza at Ginos East... true deep dish pizza. You can leave your mark, literally on the walls.
