We took two grandchildren, ages 6 and 8, to see Chicago, and this worked very well for us. It's a bit far from the city, but having the "el" right across the street, bus stop a few yards away, CVS next door, and kitchen and laundry facilities in the apartment, all at a reasonable price, made it a great choice. Upscale accommodations (except the standard sofa bed, which the kids didn't mind). We all loved the big flat-screen TV. Communication with the student coordinators is not optimum beforehand, but once you're there, there is 24 hour assistance by phone - very helpful.
