Hi, Sorry to invade your Chicago board but I am hoping you guys can help me out....
So, we are probably crazy, but the hubs and I - along with out 2 babies - (will be 2.5 and 1 at the time) will be coming to Chicago in September. I am originally from about an hour away from Chicago and we will be coming there, then renting a car and going to see my family.
Thing is, we are tacking this trip on to a seminar I have to go to in Chicago. For 1.5 days, my husband will have the kids in Chicago by himself. I will be with them at night... but we will be staying an extra 2 days to enjoy Chicago too.
Seminar is at Doubletree Rosemont.
I want to stay in a hotel on the magnificient mile. I think that will obviously provide more for them to do during the day. Best I can tell, if I left an hour before seminar, I could take the blue line to rosemont and walk a few blocks to the hotel and have time to spare.
I would have to do this there and back 2 days in a row, would that completely suck?? Would it be better or worse for us to just rent a car?
Also, We will be flying in... we will have lots of stuff.... short of taking the train and if we do not get a car, how will I get my babies from airport to hotel downtown?
I need a fellow mommy who is used to the city to help me sort through this! I APPRECIATE ANY HELP/SUGGESTIONS.
