We are looking at returning to Chicago at the end of December.We were in Chicago this summer and I can't remember where the Talbot is located. In August we stayed at the Hard Rock but we would like to be down where most of the shopping is and by Water Tower. Is the Talbot around there? Also, are there any big events to celebrate New Year's Eve? We're taking my 16 yr old son so we would like it to be fun for him also.
