    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

Searched for West Loop - UIC, on the 18th December and there's a 3.5 * hotel, which is giving the best guess as Crowne Plaza.  It comes up as $75.45 with Hotwire Express and here are the amenities:

 

Restaurant, Fitness, Smoke Free, Free Internet, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Blind Accessible, Deaf Accessible, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible, Handicapped Parking, Roll-in Shower, Pet Friendly

 

There are some other hotel suggestions given but just wondering if anyone thinks if the best guess as Crowne Plaza is most likely.

Cheers again Aaron. But this is actually just for my wife who’s looking for somewhere close to work for the night, and her work is close to Ogilvie train station.

Appreciate the feedback and I’ll be looking for  another room for the Friday 21st when we all head in to Chicago for the night.

If this night has to be near Ogilvie, I'd recommend this:
 

4.5* Chicago Loop - Grant Park (please confirm that the correct date of travel is showing on the detail page after clicking this link) for $85
Pets Allowed
Business Center
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

>>>Best guess would be the Kimpton Gray

 

Article on the restoration: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/ct-gray-hotel-kamin-0831-20160830-column.html

 

Nicer hotel than the Crowne Plaza for not much more (and a great deal vs the Grey's regular rate), plus about the same distance (0.5mi), just East of Ogilvie instead of West. Kimpton wine social hour at night, as well.

 

There's also a French market under Ogilvie: https://frenchmarketchicago.com/

 

Thanks for keeping us updated on what you decide and very happy to help with the additional stay on the 21st.
