Surface by Microsoft

Kids just want to have fun, and will at Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, where a special Microsoft installation lights up the lobby. Not your usual computer arrangement, the new Surface by Microsoft comprises a 30-inch table display where several youngsters (and grownups, too) can sit together and experiment. Favorite application: The digital jukebox allowing musical playlists from Sheraton’s exclusive offerings by Sony BMG artists, including John Legend, Kenny Chesney, and Lauryn Hill. Kids can also help parents plan local itineraries with CityTips®, a unique search site for restaurants, entertainment, recreation, and transportation options in the Windy City. Even your youngest can learn what Chi-town has to offer through high-tech means.
