Subject: Re: Help wanted - Chicago trip
Hi Sybil:

We were in Chicago last week-end to visit our son. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza The Silversmith which is at 10 S Wabash just north of the jct of Madison. We liked it. Our son lives in Chicago (but an hour ride on the brown line) so we booked a room for three adults. Cost was $146 a night. The location was good we thought. If you like to shop it was between Marshall Field and Carson Piri Scott. Two blocks from Millenium Park and a couple of blocks from the art museum. The Berghoff Restaurant was around the corner and a block up. We walked everywhere and have decided to stay there again when we head to the windy city after the christmas lights are up. The rooms and lobby have been decorated in a prairie / Frank Lloyd Wright style. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant at the hotel.

Hope this helps, Barb in Grand Rapids
