The plane ride was fine, I'm a big fan of Southwest. Inexpensive and the crew was great. I didn't mind getting inline for seating. We managed to get "B" section both times so no big fat harry men came into play. We had no problem with the smaller airport-Midway. Why you would want to fly in any other way is beyond me. The transfer was easy to find and pretty much on time. The hotel was very nice and in a good location. There happened to be a movie being filmed down in the lobby. We checked that out and explored the local area.
