I was really hoping for something in River North. But the Loop won't be too bad. Additionally, on my third bid I was hoping that the Hyatt was still available for that bid. But obviously it was not. The biggest complaint I have read about the Palmer House is that they tend to place their Priceline guests in very, very small, closet-like rooms. I don't think that will be an issue for me (I stayed in an extremely small $99 room in the Drake once and I thought that the rade-off in space was worth the price and location -- hopefully I will feel the same way about the Palmer House). Hopefully the bidding information above will be useful to those looking to book a room in downtown Chicago in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for all of the information on this website. I used the PRICELINE link associated with this board.
