Stayed at the Avenue Hotel in May. I wouldn't have been able to afford this place if I booked right on the actual hotel website. I went through booking.com and got the room (2 queen sized beds on the 22nd floor) for only $99 bucks a night!
Great location though. We walked everywhere!
Room was clean and the view was pretty awesome. It was great to have The Elephant and Castle (the Pub) right in the lobby of the hotel, they had an excellent beer selection, and super friendly staff. OH and the beds were really comfortable too!
Parking, however, was a nightmare. The parking at the actual hotel was 48 dollars a night... OUCH! We elected to park at the public lot next door (the hospital lot) that was 34 dollars a night.. and for the 50 hours I was in Chicago it cost me $104 for parking. They charge PER DAY opposed to PER HOUR. Watch for this..
