    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

This is either the Langham or Trump.  I've never seen the Langham rated on TripAdvisor anything less than 5.0 though.

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 5 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

5* HOTWIRE River North for $307.00
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Boutique
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Spa
Childrens Activities
==> if this is the full amenity set you're seeing, best guess for this one would be The Trump

 

Does this work for your needs this trip?  If not, what is it that you're looking for in a hotel for this stay and what is your maximum budget (per nite before fees/taxes)?

 

Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

 

Let us know how it goes or if we can be of further help.

It's not as centrally located as the Trump, but I'll suggest on HOTWIRE:

 

5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $322.00
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
Blind Accessible
Deaf Accessible
Travel Accessible
Room Accessible
Bathroom Accessible
Roll-in Shower
==>  Best guess would be the Waldorf, for not much more than the potential Trump.

 

There's also:

 

5* HOTWIRE Magnificent Mile - Water Tower for $317.00
Free Internet
Pet Friendly
Indoor Pool
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa
Childrens Activities
==>  Best guess would be the Park Hyatt, but I'd rather the Waldorf for a few dollars more.

 

I'm very familiar with Chicago and happy to answer any city or hotel questions.

Excellent advice and I will definitely try using the EASY VIEW TAB and I will certainly book using the preferred HOTWIRE link provided by your site.

Honestly, I love the Langham and that is the hotel I am will to spend $300+ on via Hotwire.  I just love everything about it and prefer it over the Park Hyatt (older and corporate feeling).  The Waldorf just seems a bit stale for my taste.  I will keep checking hoping the Langham becomes available based on the amenities that I know are unique to it.

I'm also considering booking the 4.5 Theater district which appears to be The Gray, Kimpton Hotel.  If I can't get the Langham for $300ish, then will likely go for the Gray.

I'm seeing on PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the link below.)

 

4.5* Chicago Loop - Grant Park for $226
Pets Allowed
Business Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
>>>Best guess would be the Kimpton Gray

 

On HOTWIRE:

 

4.5* HOTWIRE Theater District - Loop for $207.00
Free Internet
Smoke Free
Fitness
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Spa
==>  Best guess would be the Londonhouse.

 

Thank you for keeping us updated on what you decide and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. I will note that there's a 7,500 person conference during this period and a very large 21,000 person conference that starts on the 30th so there is that demand during this time (and Fall in Chicago is often busy in general.)

Ran another search today and found this option:

4.5* Theater District Loop
$201/night

95% Recommended
FULL AMENITIES: Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Pet Friendly

 

Kimpton Gray Hotel  ← OUR BEST GUESS 

The Wit a Doubletree Hotel 

LondonHouse Chicago 

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago 


How likely is it that it is the Gray?  Do any of these hotels share the exact same full amenities?  It can't be the LondonHouse bc they are not pet friendly (service pets only).
I really do not want the Monaco as it needs renovation and the rooms are dated.

Your advice is much appreciated.

Nobody can answer this in terms of a percentage... but you've been around the board long enough (10+ years) to know that we are good at what we do and have a very high success rate of our guesses being accurate.
