I did know about the air/water show and used to live near the beach and agree that it's not usually an even that brings out of towners
Would it be an issue to book the 17th-19th, see where it gets me like you mentioned above. Then just buy the 19th-21st at whatever usual rate I get at the same hotel? Assuming the total cost is less.
And sorry, but I should have noted that don't need a room for 21st, that's the day we'll be checking out.
Thanks for the reply.
Dates are 8/17 to 8/21.
I am realistic and would have honestly been shocked if I got a 4* for $140, but scrolling down and seeing a lot of 3.5 and 4's for around $100 made me wonder if I was missing something. I looked at the event calendar for that weekend and don't see anything special.
Visiting Chicago in mid Aug for 4 nights. I've bid up to $140 for a 4* in Millennium Park and Magnificent Mile with no luck. I realize that's pretty low, but I have seen others get the same for less.
Am I bidding too early?
I looked a history of rejected and accepted bids, but the dates are from last year, nothing recent.
