Gonna be spending a few days in Chicago at the end of September and trying to scheme a way to get a good deal on a hotel.. SO... first off, any good suggestions? just really want a decent place to put my head and sleep, gonna be exploring the city and flashmob robbing walgreens with some under privelaged youth maybe once or twice a day... and ideally finding some good hole in the wall food places, so preferably somewhere that has decently good food places as well..
Has anyone ever used priceline, hotwire or any other 'make your own price' site to great effect? is it better to book hotels farther out or closer to the scheduled time both normally and through these sites?
Any general suggestions on hotels? Since im a poor trader im trying to spend under 150 a night, cheaper the better ;D preferably 120 130 but if can be done cheaperi ll take it lol
