I needed a room for one day. First, I started bidding on Priceline for the River North area 4.5* using re-bids and I stopped at $80 because there is a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for $83 and I did want to risk myself getting InterContinental Hotel (I had terrible experiences with them). So, I decided to go with either Hotwire or Priceline Express Deal. I narrowed down to 3 options. 1. 4.5 stars Magnificent Mile Area - River North area $82 per night 85% Hotwire Customer Reviews Pet friendly, Indoor pool(s), Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Self service laundry, Internet access, Accessible for the blind, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Handicapped parking, Roll-in shower 2. 4.0 stars Downtown Chicago - Millennium Park - Grant Park area $100 per night 95% Hotwire Customer Reviews Pet friendly, Fitness Center, Restaurant(s), Business Center, Internet access, Tennis Nearby, Spa Services, Accessible for the blind, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Wheelchair accessible, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower 3. $102 per night 4.0 stars Millennium Park, Loop & Grant Park Area 9/10 guest score Free Internet in public areas, Pets Allowed, Restaurant, Business Center, Fitness Center thereuare and AaronJB helped me above with the HOTWIRE options. As I said earlier, I did not want InterContinental, so I checked the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal for 4* MP&Loop area. It had a 9/10 guest score and there are only five 4* hotels with a score of 9 in MP/Loop/GP area (Radisson Blu, Blackstone Renaissance Chicago, Monaco, The Wit a DoubleTree, and Renaissance Chicago). The Wit a DoubleTree Hotel does not offer free wifi in public areas, so it had to be Blackstone Renaissance Chicago, Monaco, Radisson Blu, or Renaissance Chicago. I checked hotel reviews on many websites and all of these were rated higher than Fairmont Hotel and the price difference is only 2 bucks, so I decided to go with the PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal. I ended up with the Blackstone Renaissance Chicago Hotel. It was my first time bidding/dealing, so it may not be the best deal, but I am happy with what I got :) thereuare and AaronJB, thank you for helping me and of course I used the betterbidding PRICELINE link to purchase!
