As we check into the Four Seasons downtown Chicago, a concierge
automatically spots my children and leads them to a toy chest
nearby. He encourages them to choose a toy, which confuses them
since that's never happened before. "Really?" one of my twins turns
to me and asks slightly bewildered.
They had no idea the fun and treats were just beginning. Upon
entering the room, cute baseball hats and pint-sized bathrobes
awaited the girls along with toiletries especially for them.
After swimming in the family-filled warm indoor pool, we decided
to check out the kids' playroom, an actual hotel suite filled with
toys, games, crafts and activities for children of all ages.
We opted for room service in our amazingly large and comfortable
room and enjoyed a family movie. Then the biggest surprise of all
arrived. One of my daughters opened the door and squealed. The Four
Seasons Ice Cream Man arrived with a cart filled with ice cream and
every sundae topping one could imagine. They were delirious with
happiness as they piled chocolate sauce and M&Ms onto a
scrumptious concoction, as the ice cream man pointed out other
items they should include.
The Four Seasons caters to teens with its pizza making class and
a customized menu of teen spa services.
