We’ve been avid users of Divvy bikes ever since they first came to Chicago. We love a good way to get around the city with ease that is also good for the environment. There’s a huge amount of Divvy bike stations located around the city and even one steps away from our hotel!
In honor of Cyber Monday, Divvy is offering 15% off of a yearly membership – $85.00 for the usual $99.99 deal. Click here to purchase yours.
The station near our hotel is located at the intersection of Huron & Wells.
Happy biking and happy Cyber Monday!
Getting ready for the holiday season? We think the perfect way to do so is to visit the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights! The event returns to the zoo this weekend and the best part is that it’s free! We love visiting the zoo to see the beautiful light fixtures and other special exhibits that are thrown on by the zoo. The event runs through early January and you will definitely catch us making a visit!
Visit the Lincoln Park Zoo’s website for more information.
Happy Thanksgiving from our hotel! We’re thankful for the amazing guests that have stayed with us this year. We hope that you have a great Thanksgiving weekend with your loved ones!
Troquet River North is a french bistro located adjacent to our hotel lobby and we love recommending it to our guests! Troquet has delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktail offerings, great #HappyHour deals and more. Here are a few photos of their delicious menu: we’re sure that your mouth will water by just looking at them!

We love Chicago because it’s home to such a diverse group of things to see, eat, drink and do. What’s even better? When these things are free!
