Family Friendly hotel in Chicago?

Looking for hotel that families are welcome at - prefer downtown chicago. I know so much of chicago is for business travelers so we don't want to be "those" people bothering the suits!

We had a great family trip to the Avenue Hotel Crowne Plaza ...right in the heart of downtown Chicago. Sure there were "suits" but there were plenty of families, couples and other types of travelers. All blended well together. Ask for one of their kid friendly rooms - awesome! Wii game..chalk boards...bright kid friendly colors and beanbag chairs. Menu at the Elephant restaurant has a lot of kid friendly options and the American Girl Store is close by the Avenue Hotel.

Have fun!

We stayed at the Homewood Suites on Grand, I think. It was an easy two block walk to the bus stop on Michigan. It had a great breakfast and an indoor pool.

We've stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers on Water Street, several times. It's very family friendly, and they have a nice indoor pool, which my kids loved. It's about 2 blocks east (toward the lake) of Michigan Avenue, and right on the Chicago river. Once in a while, they have really good deals on rooms, too.

We have stayed at the Homewood Suites on Grand as well. Also the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown which has free cooked to order breakfast and an indoor pool and whirlpool. Both are convenient for Michigan Ave shopping and walkable to Navy Pier as well as convenient for buses and metro.

The Embassy Suites near Navy Pier is very good for families. Suites are nice and large and the cooked to order breakfast very good. You can walk to a lot of the attractions.
