As a first-time mom, I was wowed by the lake and skyline vistas from my suite at Northwestern Medicine Prentice Women’s Hospital. Not far away, people were dropping big bucks at the Drake for similar views, and all I had to do was sign up for 18 years of stress! I’ve now birthed three babies with sparkling Lake Michigan as my backdrop, and the memories of this fleeting pseudovacation — along with the banana pudding parfait from the dining menu — have me contemplating a fourth. Actually, never mind. 250 E. Superior St., Streeterville
