I guess the question really is... What do you think the difference in accommodations with be from the 3* $147 to the 4* $169. Do you think it will be worth it? We got very cheap flights, that's why we chose Chicago, but also need it to not break the bank as we are a middle income family, and this is an extra getaway. Would it be worth it to save the little extra and get the 3* with decent/clean accommodations. Where I could use that little extra a night towards an attraction, or spend the extra $ per night to stay somewhere a little nicer, but not have the Extra $45 to spend elsewhere. Trying to get the whole weekend to be under $600 for food, accommodations and activities. The flights were booked with miles that I needed to use or lose, so I spend about $40 a roundtrip.
