For the first listing, if you click on the listing, then click "book now", then 'see all amenities', do you see additional amenities beyond the ones noted above?
 
The second listing would likely be the Public.
 
Please note prices with listings you are requesting ID help with - thanks.

How high have you already bid on PRICELINE?
 
Also, are you driving in or flying in? If you are driving in, I'd rather say stay in the 'burbs, take public transit in and save probably $150-200+.

ok sorry I'm still learning how to navigate this forum. I did read the message. Any thought on what the first hotel may be?

I did reply to that but for some reason it didn't post. I am driving in but have to go straight to downtown because I am short on time before my event that night and wont have any extra time.

I did list all the amenities as listed for the hotels below as shown in the hotwire easy view link. I would like to stay under or at $300 with all fees but not sure if that's going to happen at this point. I am willing to bid or use hotwire. Not too picky just not big on felix, or Allerton. I just searched again and now see:

M-WT 4* for $274

free internet, boutique hotel, smoke free rooms, fitness center, restaurants, business center, internet access, golf nearby, tennis nearby, access. visual, access hearing, access path of travel, access room, wheelchair, access bathroom, access parking , roll in shower and

pet friendly

 

M-RN 4* $374

free internet, boutique, smoke free, fitness center, restaurant, business center, internet access, spa, access visual, access hearing, access path of travel, in room access, wheelchair access, access bathroom, roll in shower.

 

This is all that I see for both options. Thanks!

In the suburbs:

 

1. Homestead in Evanston (includes free breakfast and free parking) $140, Expedia (please use the site's Expedia link). Evanston is the first city North of the Chicago border. 

 

There's no way to guarantee a HOTWIRE property in Evanston.  There is a 3* in Evanston-Skokie zone on HOTWIRE for $108 w/Restaurant, Pool, Indoor Pool, Fitness, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry, Tennis, Free Parking, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Handicapped Parking, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly.

-- Likely the Holiday Inn North Shore. Not a real great hotel, but right off the Expressway.

 

If you can stay further North (Glenview/Northbrook/Deerfield), you're looking at less than $100 and potentially even the $60-70 neighborhood.

 

I know you did say you had to go right downtown, but I hate to see someone have to spend $300+ to stay downtown if there's any way they could avoid it. The Homestead in Evanston is not far at all (walking distance) from both CTA and Metra stations.

 

----------------

 

Downtown I'm seeing:

 

4* Mag Mile-WT $275 Boutique, Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Golf, Tennis, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Wheelchair Accessible, Handicapped Parking, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly

-- Likely Public.

 

When I click on the Mag Mile-RN 4* for $376, I get the message that it's no longer available.

 

There's a 4* Mag Mile N-WT for $371 w/Boutique, Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Handicapped Parking, Roll-in Shower

-- Likely Allerton. I'd much rather the potential Public for $275.

Thanks for all of the info. I agree the prices are so insane for that night! I may see if I can make the burbs work. Do you know much about the public? Is it decent and how for is it walking from the mag. mile?

The Public is at the very top end of the zone, in the Gold Coast area. It's an easy walk to the very top end of the NMA area. There is a subway station a few blocks away at the Clark/Division intersection. It used to the Ambassador East, which was one of the more famed historic properties in the US. It's a nice property, but for $275 you're not going to feel like you're getting a value at all - but I can say that about a lot of hotels in the city when you get to near or over $300. Unfortunately, there just aren't many options at all in the city for this night; if there is any way you could make the suburbs work,, the savings could certainly be substantial.

 

Keep in mind if you're driving in you're looking at paying around $25-30+ city taxes in a city lot or probably around $50+ for the night at the hotel for parking, so if you can get a suburban hotel with free parking, that's essentially additional savings.

 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions before booking.
