girls overnight getaway.. need help

Planning to take the amtrak to Chicago in December. What hotels would be good to consider that is near most of the shopping? Preferably not a real pricey or very high end hotel. Something not cheap either but in between regarding prices.

Is the amtrak near most of the shopping? Do we need to take a taxi from amtrak to downtown?

Check out the hotel mapping feature on hotels.com or a similar site. Because Chicago is a big convention destination, you may see prices in a wide range depending on the date. In general, expect to pay about $200 a night on a typical weekend.

Amtrak trains arrive at Union Station, between Adams and Jackson, Clinton and Canal streets in the west Loop (downtown).

Much of the medium to high end shopping is along Michigan Avenue from the river to Oak Street. More of the middle to budget shopping range can be found along State Street from Randolph to Van Buren.

The Omni Suites might work for you; it has a great North Michigan Avenue location, as does the Westin on Michigan, the Intercontinental, and many more. Since there are almost 100 hotels in or near these shopping districts, see which ones agree with your budget and choice of locations. Post back with any questions.

Also, check the Residence Inn Mag Mile (a Marriott). This might be the best for a group as they have a nice, and free, breakfast, plus some big suites.
