    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Hi Aaron, 

Obviously 2 double beds would be much more preferable given our kids are getting older and bigger. 

And I’d like to keep it in Mag Mike/Gold coast/River north area if possible, and preferably 100-200 for the night.

 

Hi Guys,

 

I'm actually looking to book in again to Chicago this coming Thursday, the 19th, but this time it will be with 2 kids.  So I was just wondering how reliable it is to use the service when we definitely need the 2 double beds.  I used your helper and got two 4 * choices in the Mag Mile area on HW for 122/night and one for 161/night.  The best guess for the 161 is the Ambassador and there are a few choices for the 122/night.  So just wondering if you have an idea what that hotel might be but more importantly whether it's reliable to use HW to ensure that we get at least 2 double beds for us on Thursday?

Thanks.

I'm seeing on HOTWIRE:

 

4* HOTWIRE Theater District - Loop for $183.54
Free Internet
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Hi-Speed Internet
==>  Best guess would be the Cambria Loop. There is a 2 bed option showing for the same price.

 

4* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $161.00
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Boutique
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Wheelchair Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==>  Best guess would be the Ambassador. This listing says bed choice, but once I click on it it's not offered. I've stayed at this property when it was an Omni, then stayed after the complete revamp as the boutique Public Hotel. The Public impressed in terms of the facelift that the historic hotel was given, but there were limitations - it's an old building and walls are thin. This is at the very tip top of the zone, it's not centrally located.

 

4* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $122.00
Pet Friendly
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
==>  Likely the Sheraton. I'm not seeing bed choice, but $122 for this date (especially when searching for quad occupancy) is certainly cheaper than comparable options.

 

Other HOTWIRE options that do not show bed choice option but that appear when searching for 2 adults and 2 children (which should result in some form of bedding for the entire party, although 2 beds is not guaranteed):

 

3* HOTWIRE Theater District - Loop for $145.00
Free Internet
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Business
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
==>Best guess would be the Hilton Garden Inn North Loop

 

3* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $188.00
Complimentary Breakfast
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Kitchenette
==>  Best guess would be the Homewood Suites Downtown/Mag Mile

 

3.5* HOTWIRE River North for $137.00
Free Internet
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Handicapped Parking
Roll-in Shower
==>  Best guess would be the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza

 

On PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the links below.)

 

4* Chicago Loop - Grant Park (<<<---- CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $190
Pets Allowed
Fitness Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Free Internet
>>>Best guess would be the StayPineapple at the Alise, which until recently was the Kimpton Burnham. There is a 2 bed room option just over budget at $222.61 ($205 + 17.61 fee), but did want to offer it as a suggestion as it's an extremely historic property with mostly excellent reviews.
