I always recommend staying in town, right near Michigan Ave. All the good stuff in Chicago is going to be in the City. Knickerbocker Hotel is nice, you should like the shopping, Neiman Marcus is just down the street on the Miracle Mile [Michigan Ave] [some of the best shopping short of Rodeo Drive], Rush Street is the Party/Bar area about 4 blocks west and rocks until 3am.

Gino's is the PIZZA joint you want to go to. Behind Neiman Marcus on Huron.

Marriott is also pretty nice on Michigan Ave, right by the river.

For things to do, if you get a chance to take the river cruise that coincides with sunset, do it. Get the tour that does the river and then goes out past the piers and into the lake and does the turnaround. The skyline at sunset is knockout. The Art Museum is VERY good. Worth a day.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I am too a product of Chicago, well, kind of.

I am glad I no longer live there.

It's been a while.

Northwest part is good, the lake is beautiful.

The Loop is one of a kind.

16 Street and further south..watch out.

I worked at the Drake. The cheapest room is $550 a night and it smells like an ash tray.

Chill, Amtrak will let you off at Michigan Ave or Union Station. It's a short cab ride to the Holiday Inn on Ohio street. It's the least expensive downtown hotel but it wont be St. Louis prices.
Downtown and especially the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave shopping district) are very well patrolled. You will be fine as long as you're not wandering around drunk at 4 in the morning. Hit the bars on Rush street, wear your bikini on Oak Street Beach, do the architectural cruise on Lake Michigan, get drunk at The Hang Uppe.
