Susan (my wife), Gavi (my 11-year-old daughter), and I are planning to attend an event at Emanuel Congregation (5959 North Sheridan Road) later this summer, and will likely take the opportunity to spend a few extra days in Chicago and poke around. Maybe visit the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field, and, you know, whatever.
We're looking for hotel recommendations. Something reasonably priced — neither luxury-class nor cheap and scary. We'll probably be driving down from the Twin Cities, so we'll need a hotel that has parking (unless it would be smarter to take Amtrak). Would it make more sense to stay in the loop and run out for the event, or stay near the shul and take the L down for exploration? And other similar questions.
