  1. Booked the $95 River North. Amenities: Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services, Children's activities, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Accessible parking, Roll-in shower It WAS The James
  2. I have stayed at the James--it's great. I was kind of hoping this other one on Mag Mile was the Sofitel, as the other 4.5's in that area rarely have "childrens activities" listed. Also, no pool listed, which would seem to eliminate the only other choice that ever lists "Childrens Activities" ( W Lakeshore) Does that make any sense? Ive never stayed at the Sofitel, and kind of wanted to give it a shot!
  3. Yes. $108 with this amenity set Pet friendly, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Children's activities Sofitel?
  4. See above--2 messages above.
  5. I did provide follow up on my post in Dec--I booked at London House. Please see the following-- " I ended up booking the London House as Ive stayed in the Westin and the Omni, and the Intercontinental before. I booked via the HOTWIRE area, and the rate was $119. I can cancel w/o penalty until tomorrow, so I will continue to monitor your site for any deal that may pop up." Thanks! Id appreciate the help with this post if you are able. Mike

  8. I ended up booking through another site ( not HW/Priceline) and got a great deal on The Thompson. I didnt feel like I could be certain of which hotel i was getting, which obviously is the "risk". I love your site and appreciate all that you do. Mike

Id like good location, and at least 4 star. As Always, THANKS!
  10. I cut and paste via BiddingHelper.com with the Easy View tab. Here's the one I think you were talking of--looks like a GREAT deal. Still think Sofitel or Hyatt?? The "Boutique" thing throws me. Now $112/night! Mag Mile 4.5* FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Accessible for visually impaired, Accessible for hearing impaired, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower
  11. Im not finding that Mag Mile deal. I show $137. Maybe i missed the window. Dammit. ;) What about these two in River North? Ivy? Palomar? $128 4.5 * FULL AMENITIES: Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access $132 4.5* FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Internet access, Spa services With the free breakfast, what do you think of the Kinzie at 130/night? Ive never stayed there.
  12. I ended up booking at the Thompson as the introductory rate was amazing. i was really trying for a great hotel, and The Thompson was exactly that. Thanks for all your help! Mike
  13. Chicago Downtown River North 4* 7/8-7/10 Hotwire 4 star, 100% recc, $130, with the following amenities: Free breakfastFree Internet Amenities Business centerFitness centerPet friendlySpa services Accessibility Accessible path of travelIn-room accessibility Any ideas? there are very few listed with "Free Breakfast"
  14. Darn it. I don't see the 4.5* boutique WITHOUT a pool in Mag Mile WT any longer that you thought may be Sofitel. I think I lost out. I do see the 100% boutique again that I think may be the Thompson in this same area. Question. Are there any 5* in the MagMile River north EXCEPT Langham and Trump? I may splurge on this level. It's a big deal weekend. Thanks for your help and patience. I want to find a really special place , and if I can save a few bucks, that's even better. Any other suggestions VERY appreciated!
  15. First answer: Yes. Same dates. 10/10--10/11. I'm not sure why this is relevant given that I'm asking for very different hotels. I'm simply asking for help identifying a 5* hotel with the listed amenities, as identifying the 4.5* with the listed amenities proved tough for everyone. Now, I am asking for the likely properties given the listed amenities. I'm not sure why this seems to bother anyone. Just asking for help in an area where your knowledge far exceeds mine.
