Room with a View

We wrapped up our U.S. travels this spring with stops in two of my favorite cities. I think you'll recognize where we were just by taking in the view from our hotel room at each place.

Our wake-up call (read: two kids jumping on the beds) came way too early in the morning in St. Louis. But I can certainly forgive them for wanting to feast their eyes on this one-of-a-kind landmark. And now I can check "seeing the Gateway Arch at sunrise" off my bucket list.

The kids couldn't contain their excitement over this view in Chicago, either. In fact, when dad let them get up on the ledge, there was lots of screaming and yelling (sorry neighbors). Big Arrow kept debating which apartment building he wanted to live in, while Little Arrow could have watched the cars and buses drive by down below for hours.

What's the best hotel room view you've ever had? These were certainly two of our favorites.

(Want to recreate them? We stayed at the Crown Plaza in downtown St. Louis and the Embassy Suites Downtown Lakefront in Chicago.)

Note: We move to England on Tuesday (hip, hip, hooray!), so if the blog falls silent for a bit, please know we're just getting settled and will be back soon. You can always keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter.
