This Has to Be the Nicest Hotel Room I've Ever Stayed in!

Seriously. This has to be the most modern, urban hipster friendly, kick-assinest hotel room I or Steph have ever had the pleasure to have a restless night's sleep in (that has nothing to do with the room, though, and more to do with yelling in the

If I had my camera I'd take pictures and post them here, but I don't so a description will have to suffice. I'll preface by saying that it's not a large room. It's smaller than many rooms I've stayed in. But they've done a lot to maximize the space. All the furniture is solid wood, and very modern. The art on the walls is unlike anything I've ever seen in a hotel. One painting looks like dozens of Picachus (from Japanese anime) climbing a tree.

Steph and I were like kids in a candy store when we were first exploring the room. It has a 42 inch HDTV, one of those single serve container based coffee makers (we each had a cup immediately), and the Pièce de résistance, a clock radio with big speakers and an iPod dock. We figured out how to mount Steph's iPhone and had an instant, personalized stereo in the room.

The bathroom is beautiful. Greenish glass tile on most walls, with a free-standing round basin sink against long, rectangular brown floor tiles. The shower is enclosed in glass except for one open half wall. There is no door, which looks cool, but turns out not to be a case of form over function. With no door the cold air leaks in throughout your entire shower. Not ideal.

In any case, we're very much enjoying our stay here in Chicago. Now I have to post this before the 24 hours of internet access I purchased runs out.
