There will probably be 6 of us in our 50s planning to spend 2 or 3 nights in Chicago and looking for the best prices in a safe location. We are planning on going to the Field Museum, Science & Industry, and Shedd Aquarium. Also probably the Sears tower. Would love to stay downtown and been shopping for deals but really can't afford the prices and would like to find hotel for no more than $150 a night. I've found deals close to O'Hare for Fri & Sat nights (Hilton for $99) but don't want to spend a fortune to get downtown each day. Any suggestions?
Dates are a little flexible as we could check in Thur & checkout Sun or check in Sat and check out on Tues.
Or, have wondered if we could get everything done if we only stay 2 nights. will be arriving by train on the first day around noon. and could either leave early or around 2PM on the last day.
Are hotel prices better in the spring?
