We will be heading there in May for four days at the request of our son's teachers. He and our daughter are going on the arts trip and he has some lingering issues from his (benign) brain tumor, so they would like us to be in the city as well. The kids are staying in Homewood (apparently they choose the suburbs for a reason lol) but we will be staying downtown. I was wondering... does anyone have any suggestions for downtown hotels that are reasonably priced (we don't need a fancy room as we will be spending most of our time exploring the city) and also anything that is a must see for out of town tourists? I kind of like the look of the Allerton hotel and yes I know it's old but I like the character of it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you guys may have!
