If you’re planning a family getaway in Chicago, a long weekend at the Park Hyatt on the Near North Side is fantastic all year round. The hotel’s central location in the city’s most vibrant neighborhood makes it perfect for when your kids want to play all day at American Girl Place across the street, or take in the sights from a horse-drawn carriage. When you need a break, one of the best places in the area to eat is right inside the hotel. NoMI’s a grown-up spot, but your kids will feel right at home in the summertime with the make-your-own-sundae program. You’ll love watching their dessert dreams come true as they pick and choose among house-made butterscotch, graham streusel, and peanut butter fudge. Or say they’re all bundled up and coming out of the cold during winter. The pastry team’s got their back with creamy and thick hot chocolate that’s certain to please every little one—and big one—in the group. More house-made toppings, like mint-infused marshmallows and flavored whipped creams, take hot cocoa to a new level. And just in case you were wondering, while everyone else is picking out all sorts of crazy toppings, you can have yours spiked with a nip of whiskey, rum, or Grand Marnier.
