The Gwen is probably the best SPG, and it’s central


Hotel Zachary (SPG luxury) opens end of March. Right across from Wrigley at Clark and Addison


W Lakeshore since you're visiting in the summer


The Gwen for sure. It is the nicest SPG in Chicago. It is on the magnificent mile. Walkable to the lake, the river, millennium Park. Two block walk to the redline which takes you straight to Wrigley or Sox


^thats pretty far south, I would stay in the loop or river north


Gwen is right. Also Robey is fun, different part of town though - Wicker Park / Bucktown


There is a new SPG in wriggleyville.. the Zachary. Apparently has a McDonald’s on the ground floor.


Definitely do not stay in wrigleyville. Agree with the Gwen, W Lakeshore. The Marriott in Michigan is also solid


Gwen without question

I prefer the HoJo on Lasalle. Free HBO.

^nothing says lux like a McD’s. Maybe it’ll actually be nice, but until proven otherwise, I agree with the majority on this one... Gwen.

W lakeshore isn’t a family establishment. More, nightclub....

I believe the Zachary is tribute portfolio and not luxury collection.

The W lakeshore is so overrated. It’s a converted budget hotel, so the walls are thin and rooms nothing special. Good location, though. JW Marriott is ok. And while not a sexy choice, the residence inn for families is a ton of space for cheap in a good location.

Chicago Mag Mile is 👍🏻

Blackstone. Renaissance property. Close to the park good dis walkable and field museum. Just will need to train or Uber to wrig

My significant other and I love each other but have pretty different views on how we want our life to look like in the future. I prioritize being in close proximity to family and friends, living in a city and having a successful career. My significant other wants to travel and experience living in a different state/country for an extended amount of time a year (& most likely not in a city). How have couples been able to successfully reconcile their differences/compromise on future dreams?

Planning a one week trip to Yucatán. My first time in Mexico. Not a fan of big resorts. I’m an introvert, would love to find a quiet place to recharge. I looked at Palmul, which is between Cancun and Tulum. Does anyone know the area? I’d also love to drive around a bit. Maybe an overnight trip to Merida. Can I just get a rental car and explore? I’ll be traveling around alone. Female.

Does anybody work for any of the 3 major airlines (Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, American Airlines)? Would love to learn more about what work is like at any of the airlines. I did have an internship offer 2020 for one of the mentioned airlines, but covid canceled it, so I got my career start in a different industry.


Anybody moved back to USI recently? I'm supposed to travel back soon and getting a bit anxious about the 14hr journey (haven't flown since the pandemic began). Would it be fair to ask Deloitte for business class instead of economy? I guess it would be easier to maintain social distancing in business, but would it even matter?

About to join KPMG Lighthouse in a couple weeks. Received an email about a KPMG lakehouse on campus event in Orlando. I think it is supposed to be an orientation event.

The new SPG app is not intuitive at all, very hard to navigate i find.
