Trip Report Chicago weekend

My wife and I just spent 3 nights in Chicago .We booked the Palmer House Hilton thru Priceline name your own price option.
The room was very nice with a very good bed and great pillows .
The negative was a very small bathroom.
The highlight of this hotel is the lobby . Even if you dont stay there check it out !!!
Overall a great hotel
The hotel is close to the El. We purchased 3 day cta passes that allowed us unlimited riding on the el and the busses. I highly recommend doing this.
My recommendation for things to see :
Buckingham Fountain at night
Tribune Tower
The Rookery
The Art Institute
Wrigley Field ( even if you dont go to a game , just enjoy the atmosphere )

Places to eat at :
Lou Malnatis Pizza
Ginos East Pizza
Mr Beef - Awesome Italian Beef Sandwiches
Wildberry Cafe for Breakfast
Hoosier Mama Pie serves awesome pies !

This is by no means a complete list but some of what we were able to do in 3 days .
We will definitely want to return
