Ask Imagine: Family Trip to Chicago Look for a Luxury Kid Friendly Hotel in the Burbs

Dear Imagine Lifestyles,

I will be bringing my family to Chicago next month and am looking for some ideas on a place to stay.  I am looking to stay outside of the city and would like to be close to the airport.  Can you please recommend a good suburb to stay in with my family? Thank You!!

Dear Rick,

Thank you so much for the inquiry Rick.  Chicago has plenty of options for what you are looking for next month when you get to town.  Imagine Lifestyles would recommend staying in Oakbrook, IL for numerous reasons.  Oakbrook is extremely close to the airport, has excellent dining, and will provide your wife and kids with plenty of entertainment options.

We would advise you to stay at the Hilton Oak Brook Terrace Hotel.  This hotel is located right in beautiful Oakbrook’s commercial district.  Located right in the heart of all the entertainment, dining, and shopping venues, this hotel is perfect for your needs.  Speaking of shopping be sure to check out Illinois’s largest outdoor shopping mall right across the street from your hotel.  

In fact, Oakbrook Center is the largest open-air shopping complex in the United States.  With six department stores and over 160 upscale boutiques and restaurants there will be plenty to do for all of your family.  You will also be pleasantly surprised with the lavish gardens and numerous fountains scattered throughout the area.  It is a spectacular shopping experience in every way.  When you get tired from all the shopping, head over to Grotto for a fantastic dining experience.

Located in the Oakbrook Promenade, Grotto is an upscale Italian Steakhouse serving up terrific food.  Since you will be here in the summer, request a table in the newly opened Patio Bar.  Imagine Lifestyles recommends the Veal Scaloppini, our favorite item on the menu.  

Let Imagine Lifestyles relieve the stress of all your transportation needs while you are visiting as well.  If you decide on an Escalade or Range Rover Rental we will gladly comp an airport transfer you and your family and have which ever of our luxury suv rentals you choose waiting at your hotel.  You can use the car all weekend, then drive back to the airport and we will be there to meet you and pick up the car.  Imagine Lifestyles will gladly provide any luxury car rental you desire when you are in town.  

Thank You,

Imagine Lifestyles
