Just booked the hotel using the HOTWIRE link on this site. Holiday Inn Express Deerfield, 2600 Lake Cook Road, Riverwoods,IL,60015 Amenities: Smoke Free Rooms Complimentary Breakfast Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities High-speed Internet Access This is on the official "family visit" weekend for Northwestern University. The hotels in Evanston have more than tripled the price they will accept for this weekend (if they have any left). And when bidding on Priceline for the Evanston/Skokie hotels, they would not accept a bid twice as much as a usual winning bid. I will drive 12 to 15 min for this $44 a night hotel.
