American Idol Comes to Chicago and the Chicago Lake Shore Hotel

Had another long weekend at the Chicago Lake Shore Hotel over Fathers Day. It was great though, about 300 people came in for the Sunday Brunch and had a great time as they always do at our brunch.

I also met some intresting people staying with us for a special event here in Chicago this week.  American Idol is in town for tryouts! Thousands of people are here to let “Simon, The Big Dog Randy and Paula” hear them sing their hearts out.  A couple of the girls were singing in the lobby, I hope to see them on the funny side of the show. I don’t think their going to make it!  No one else was letting us hear them so I couldn’t judge the others to see if we had a winner staying with us.

A large family came in from their day of visiting our fair city Saturday night.  They looked dead to the world.  They told me that they had walked 8 miles up Clark Street to see Wrigley Field.  Plus they walked all around downtown and at Navy Pier.  They were planning to go to the pool and just soak for the rest of the night.  Thats what we provide here at the Chicago Lake Shore Hotel “Rest & Relaxation.”  We even have a beach across the street for those sun worshipers staying with us.  As I have always said there’s always something to do in Chicago and Chicago Lake Shore Hotel is just the place to recharge your batteries and enjoy A Great Midwestern Vacation Destination.
