Oh I see. They wanted to verify the credit card by comparing photo ID with signature on the card?

I don't know what I would do in that situation.  Cry?  lol.  I guess a photo ID would verify that you are you.  I'm glad your daughter had a credit card and her ID.  I guess one option would be to find an ATM and pay with cash?  I wonder if that would work?!  Glad everything worked out, and enjoy the rest of your time in Chicago!

 Many places will only take credit cards, no cash.  In case of any damages that might happen during a stay.

Glad your dd was with you.  I don't remember being asked for photo id when checking into a hotel but I guess everyone is being super cautious these days.  Hope you enjoy your stay.
