The Sheraton is nice. The Westin is okay - but it’s in a good location for kids. (Water tower place is right there). The Gwen is also nice and located at the river end of Michigan Ave

W lakeshore is nice. The J-Dubs in the loop is good too. What else do you plan to do in town?

Thanks folks! I liked the looks of the Gwen and might go there. I wanted to figure out location first, then activities. Might take them to the water tower place and visit every store there :) My goal is to get them tired - the wife’s getting the weekend away for Mother’s Day and I wanted to keep the kids distracted as long as I can 🤣

OP. I’ve never been, but I can imagine the Children’s Museum on Navy Pier would be great. The Shedd aquarium is also amazing

Second on both the Children’s Museum and The Shedd. Marisol in the Museum of Contemporary Art is our go to kid friendly spot for really good brunch.
