Why am I having problems booking June 2013 hotels???

I'm looking into booking a hotel room for the potential week of the Blues Festival 2013 (from what it looks like, it seems it is the 2nd wknd in June annually?). Alot of the Top 10 Chicago hotels on TA are already booked! How is this possible???! Or is it just saying that because I'm trying to book so far in advance???HELP!

However, NEOCON is also that week. The OP may do better by looking a day later, after the convention clears out.

you have to remember a lot of conventions book years out, and as you said many festivals are also planned a year or more out.

As hotels see how the conventions are booking, they may release some rooms

If there is a particular hotel you're interested in, try calling the hotel instead of booking online. I've had good luck doing that, especially when booking relatively far in advance.

I want to book a hotel for 2 from May 25 to June 1, 2013 in Chicago and see daily rates double (or more) for the second half of my planned stay. Why?

Check the conventions and events sticky in the TOP QUESTIONS. There may be a convention or citywide party in town.
