Schmitty the Weather Dog

A Four Paws Up For The Hilton Chicago!

Written By: Schmitty The Weather Dog | May 05, 2015

As you may or may not know, I travel a lot visiting schools all over the country with my Schmitty The Weather Dog Weather Science Assembly.  When Meteorologist Ron and I were the official weather team for the big National Science Teachers Association Conference in Chicago, we stayed at the pet friendly Hilton Chicago.  Our room was fab and the service was pawsome. From the top dog & GM, Mr John Wells to the Director of PR extraordinaire, Angela Braswell and the executive office, to the front desk, bellmen, parking valets, housekeeping staff and even  security  - all were super nice humans who made me feel at home. A big four paws up to the pet-friendly Hilton Chicago Hotel!

Top Dog & GM John Wells rolls out the welcome wagon for me.  But wait, that's my wagon! BOL!

Out in front of the historic Hilton Chicago Hotel. Presidents have slept here. Eddie from Frazier has slept here.  Now I get to sleep here.

After a ruff day, one can chill by the Hilton Chicago roof top pool.  Nice.
