Hotwire Hotel: 4.5* Chicago (Downtown Chicago - River North) James Hotel

I'm looking for some guidance. I'm looking to stay in Chicago June 15-17 at a high end property (4.5* or 5*). Prefer Mag Mile/Gold Coast or River North. Ideally looking for two beds.

 

Looked at PRICELINE EXPRESS and found 4.5* Mag Mile at $149 with the following amenities:

Free Internet

Business Center

Fitness Center

Non Smoking

Restaurant

Pets Allowed

 

Also on PRICELINE EXPRESS in River North 4.5*

Fitness Center

Non Smoking

Pets Allowed

Restaurant

Swimming Pool

 

Any ideas what hotels these might be?

Would I stand a better chance bidding through Priceline for an even lower price? Or trying Hotwire?

Would like to stay under $150/nt.

 

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to BetterBidding!


Best guess/comments for each (confirm your dates on the landing page of the provided link):

 

4.5* Magnificent Mile -Gold Coast for $149
Pets Allowed
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago

 

4.5* Downtown - River North for $153
Pets Allowed
Restaurant
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago

 

You could try bidding on PRICELINE for a slightly lower price but then you need to be willing to accept any hotel in the zones that you bid at the star rating (or higher) that you choose... no ability to have a guess or any insight as to which property it is that you may receive, and the hotel may or may not be as well reviewed as the ones above.

 

One last option is this offer from HOTWIRE:

4.5* Magnificent Mile  - Water Tower for $152.00
Pet Friendly
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Wheelchair Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Roll-in Shower
==> my guess here is also The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago, but the above also appears when searching for 2adults/1child, which will help you ensure two beds in the room (although the second 'bed' could be a pullout sofabed or rollaway brought into the room)... not sure how much two beds is a need vs. a want.

Personally, if you are willing to risk not getting two beds, I'd rather suggest the Kimpton Palomar via the PRICELINE EXPRESS deal. That's a very nice hotel - and superbly located - for only a few dollars more than the Westin. The Palomar is not a far walk from Michigan Ave and is right next to a CTA subway stop. There's also tons of restaurants nearby in the River North area. Please let me know if you have any Chicago city questions.

I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4.5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

4.5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile  - Water Tower for $195.00
Pet Friendly
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Roll-in Shower
==> if this is the full amenity set you're seeing, best guess for this offer would be the Omni Chicago Hotel

Congratulations on your success... a nice price for this very highly reviewed property.

 

As there is no hotel above previously researched to be $131/nite or that was guessed to be The James, can you please add a reply to this thread with the amenities HOTWIRE shows for this property, including any 'accessible' amenities, when viewing this purchase using the MY ACCOUNT >> MY TRIPS link on the top right of their home page.

Thank you for sharing your results and using the HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your purchase.

 

Have a great stay!
