While Ebert and I were in the suburbs this weekend we were given a gift certificate for an overnight stay at the historic Hotel Baker. I love staying at hotels, especially the moment when you first open the door to your room- there's such a sense of anticipation and excitement as to what magic is waiting on the other side.
Our room had a lovely view of the Fox River.
And there was a gorgeous revolving door to the entrance of the hotel.
We dined with friends, then everyone came back to our room for wine and brownies. Maybe I'm getting old, and that's ok, but hanging out with friends in a nice a hotel room is a really fun evening!
