Sure you’ve pitched a tent, sung campfire songs, and told ghost stories out in the country, but have you done those things in a high-rise hotel? If not, grab the family and head to the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, which gives an entirely new definition to the term “roughing it.” With the iconic hotel’s Happy Campers Amenities program, young explorers can experience an exciting indoor adventure, including an in-room tent, backpacks stuffed with special camping necessities, and all the supplies you’ll need to craft the perfect s’more. Tell the youngsters to keep an ear out for the Candy Man. He’ll be at the door shortly after check-in, wearing a red-and-white striped jacket and pushing a cart stocked with sweet treats for the kids to enjoy as they cozy up in front of a movie. The hotel also welcomes pets, so you won’t have to worry about leaving Fido out of the fun. When it’s over, you might want some some grown-up R&R at the Spa at the Carlton Club, so take advantage of the babysitting services and indulge in a Swedish or deep-tissue massage. You did right by the kids, now do right by yourself.
