Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers , Chicago

Address 301 East North Water Street, Chicago, IL 60611 Map, Tel (312) 464-1000 Call, Website

This large hotel caters primarily to conferences, but you'll find it comfortable for a family trip too. The location, a few blocks off of Michigan Avenue does mean that you'll be doing some walking when you want to catch a bus, but you'll also have beautiful views of the river from the hotel's towers.
