  1. Congrats on your success. Excellent win for this very well-reviewed Radisson! Glad you are pleased with the win and are looking forward to your stay. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  2. I'm looking at Yelp reviews for Hertz in downtown Chicago and none of them have particularly great reviews; this one at the Hyatt on Wacker is mixed but better overall than most locations - https://www.yelp.com/biz/hertz-rent-a-car-chicago-20). It would depend on which way you're heading after Chicago - if you're going that way you could either try a downtown Hertz and be on your way or it's not difficult to get to Midway on the Orange line (and is a quicker trip than from downtown to O'Hare.) Later at night coming from O'Hare, I'd definitely take a cab/uber if possible - that's a fairly long ride plus the line switch once you get downtown. The Red Line station is a few blocks West of the Ambassador. Definitely let me know if you have any other city questions at all.
  3. Congrats on your success. Good deal for this Sheraton property! I'd ask at check-in if there's any way you could get a room facing South to get a river view. Thank you using the site's PRICELINE or HOTWIRE links to start your purchase and sharing your win, helping us update the Hotwire Hotel List for Chicago Enjoy your stay.
  4. Congrats on your success. Terrific win for this newer Gold Coast property! Great location and nice Lou Malnati's a couple of doors away. Please let me know if you have any city questions. Thank you for sharing your win and using the site's PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to start your purchases and searches. Enjoy your stay.
  5. I'd consider taking a taxi or Uber at 8 if possible. The Ambassador is at the top end of the zone in the Gold Coast area - while not central in the city as a whole, it's an easy walk from here to the top end of the Michigan Ave area and on a nice day it's an also an easy walk to the North of here to Lincoln Park, as well as to Old Town. There's also a Red Line station a few blocks away, too. The Ambassador is in a residential area unlike all of the other downtown properties, so there is a little less street noise than most hotels. This is a historic property with a famed restaurant and was considerably renovated a few years ago when it became the Public Hotel. The structure still is older, but they did a very nice job giving the interior a facelift when that change occurred. I'm very familiar with the city and happy to answer any questions.
  6. That Travelodge is an old property and not a particularly good option in my opinion. On HOTWIRE, I'm seeing: 3* HOTWIRE Theater District - Loop for $124 Free Internet Smoke Free Fitness Restaurant Business ==> Best guess for this would be the Hilton Garden Inn North Loop. While unfortunately more than what you were hoping for, I think it's a better value for the money than the Travelodge for $90, plus also puts you at a better location, nicer/newer property, etc. I'm very familiar with Chicago and happy to answer any questions.

  7. Please reply in the thread linked above with what you decided to do for that stay to close that thread. Thank you. If you indicate 3 people, you should get bedding for 3 - exact bedding is going to depend on hotel and availability. May be two beds, but 1 + rollaway is also possible. Please let us know if you need help trying to ID the listing in question (please provide the information showing - price per night before taxes/fees, amenities, zone, star rating) and keep us updated on what you decide.

  8. Wildberry (https://www.yelp.com/biz/wildberry-pancakes-and-cafe-chicago-2) is a short walk away from your hotel, although it is a popular breakfast option so there may be some wait. Fancier is Beatrix (https://www.beatrixrestaurants.com/beatrix/river-north/menu/breakfast/) in River North, which also has lunch/dinner and a coffee/pastry bar (https://www.beatrixrestaurants.com/beatrix/river-north/menu/coffee-pastry-bar/). Siena Tavern (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g35805-d3879063-Reviews-Siena_Tavern-Chicago_Illinois.html) would be another dinner option, as would be Sable (https://www.yelp.com/biz/sable-kitchen-and-bar-chicago-3) and Ema (https://www.emachicago.com/menu/dinner/.) Eataly is also a lot of fun. I'm very familiar with Chicago and happy to answer any questions.
  9. On PRICELINE EXPRESS (please confirm the correct dates of travel are showing on the detail page after clicking the links below.) 2.5* Champaign - Urbana (<<<----CLICK HERE to go direct to the listing) for $49 Free Parking Free Breakfast Fitness Center Free Internet in public areas Pets Allowed Business Center Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Free Internet in room >>>Best guess would be the La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham Champaign. While a little outside the zip you're looking at, not too far and a hair under your budget plus you can use the promo code in my signature. With bidding, you have to be able to accept any hotel in the zone at the star rating picked, there is no way to know what hotel you might get when bidding. With PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, one can make an educated guess as to which hotels are showing. Additionally, with Champaign I'm seeing one large zone and you might wind up anywhere in that zone if you bid. I'm not seeing much that would fit on HOTWIRE, unfortunately. Would the potential La Quinta be of interest? If not, are you interested in bidding?

  11. I'm seeing: 3.5* HOTWIRE Walt Disney World - Bonnet Creek for $85.00 Free Parking Complimentary Breakfast Free Internet Pet Friendly Smoke Free Fitness Pool Restaurant Business ==> TownePlace Suites Orlando @ Flamingo Crossings West Entrance would be my best guess. Let us know what you decide or if we can be of any further assistance.

  14. Is the Holiday Inn the only hotel of interest? The difference in distance between the Holiday Inn and Hilton Garden is about 1.6m and $49 is certainly a great price.
