Chicago Hotel close to American Girl?

by SarahJamenson

My daughter and I are traveling to the American Girl Downtown Chicago location and are in need of an affordable place to stay. Any recommendations?

Re: Chicago Hotel close to American Girl?

American Girl is in Water Tower Place so any place in the Magnificent Mile area or River North area will be reasonably close, they will also be the most expensive hotels as you are in the heart of the tourist zone. You might have a look on travelzoo which lists deals they find on other websites. Very unlikely you'll find anything under $100 per night using conventional booking, not sure what "affordable" means to you

Or if you can handle blind bidding, try Priceline or Hotwire, you can get more info at or Friends of mine have stayed for as little as $65 per night doing this but you can't cancel or change once your bid is accepted

We actually just traveled to Chicago last month and stayed at a great place called Crowne Plaza Avenue Hotel. American Girl certainly is a huge rage right now and that certainly became one of our shopping stops. This hotel has a great bar called Elephant & Castle. My husband and I found it was a nice place to unwind in after a day of shopping with the kids and plenty of options on the menu that are kid friendly. As far as affordable, it is downtown Chicago so expect to pay anywhere over 100 however we found that the Crowne Avenue provided us with a great value. We had a 1 bedroom suite so it gave us room to spread out.
Happy shopping!

Travel Tips for Chicago

Windy City

by glassslipper

And do they mean it. Bring a jacket the wind can blow you away and when you are downtown near the water you will freeze. But a little prep makes for a fine day windy or windier :) Walking around early early morning when the city is just waking up and the wind is still sleeping.

Visit all the sites!! Yes,...

by SnowAngel

Visit all the sites!! Yes, yes, I know the lines at the Sears Tower are horrendous, but just think, they're no where near as bad as theme park lines and you get lots more education from your little trip than you do waiting to see some animated fluff ball sing about a fictional character. Riding the commuter train packed with sailors back and forth from Waukegan to Chicago and sneaking unauthorized civi's (civilian clothes) on board so I wouldn't stand out like a sore thumb once I reached the 'windy city'.

Stay away from the Giordano and other chain deep-dish pizza places. For the best, I recommend Lou Malnati's River North location (Wells St.). One tier below (but still better than anything else outside Chicagoland) would be the Gino's East and Pizzaria Uno chains. There's almost always a line in the downtown pizza shops. Plan ahead when you're hungry. Deep-dish pizza takes about 30 mins to cook, so find the order taker near the front door and get your order in ASAP.

Chicago Tip

by Sunshine64

A few years ago I was visiting a friend in Chicago and we went to Six Flags just north of Chicago. They have great roller coasters, including The Viper - an unusually fast wooden coaster. Great Fun.

Chicago Weather

by cwest03

This place gets very hot and humid in the summer and very cold in the winter. When I was there in the month of July they were getting ready for a big heat wave and they were warning people to stay indoors. I guess it's not uncommon for people to die when it gets that hot.

In the winter it can get very cold and of course they have snow. Being right on lake Michigan they also get a chilling wind (they don't call it the Windy City for nothing).

No matter what time of year you go be prepared for the weather and dress accordingly.
