It may be counterintuitive but the Ritz-Carlton is actually great for families. Located in Water Tower Place, it's walking distance to Oak Street Beach, American Girl Place and many other attractions. What the property offers inside, however, is just as appealing. There's a Red Wagon Warm Welcome where youngsters can choose a toy to take home. A special candy cart shows up at each "Ritz Kids" hotel room door for free sweet treats. When dining in the hotel's restaurants, they get a Chicago themed coloring book and Ritz Kids Healthy Menu. Don't miss complimentary popcorn in the lobby each night at 5 p.m. And, yes, there's an impressive indoor pool.
Since American Girl Place is just a few steps from the hotel's front door, the hotel offers a popular American Girl Package that includes overnight accommodations, a take home doll bed, milk and cookies at turndown and valet parking.
