We made it back home late last night after taking a 6:30pm flight on Virgin America, and we randomly saw Pam was on our flight too.
Love the TVs on Virgin. So much Bravo to watch on the four hour flight! I am now completely 100% dumb!
While in Chicago for the weekend, we stayed at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower that I booked through the race website. The hotel lobby was very pretty, but the room itself was just ehh. I guess I expected a little more modern or a little more somethin’ somethin’.
The location was pretty solid: not very far from the Magnificent Mile with lots of shopping, restaurants, etc. But it was a lot farther from the start/finish than I thought.
Overlooking the lobby:

And the very purple hotel restroom:
Every single time we stay in a hotel with a king sized bed, we both say how we need to upgrade our queen and get a king. or maybe even two kings duct taped together.
The bathroom was huge which was nice because I could shut the door and get ready for the race early without waking the man up.
Overall the Sofitel was nice, but for the money, I’d probably try somewhere else out next time.
A hotel (anywhere) you love, would recommend, can’t wait to stay at again? Any unknown gems?
I need to book a hotel for Vegas now… any Vegas hotel love?
