All right, well it looks like we are going to have to lower our standards a bit.
I posted a couple weeks ago but now our criteria has changed. We cannot go over $120/night for a hotel.
Can anyone reccomend a hotel (oct. 16-20) that could fit into our budget that is in a safe area of Chicago? It doesn't have to be right downtown or anything, as long as it is convenient to the subway line so that we can get downtown, and like I said, in a safe neighbourhood. (Doesn't have to be a super nice neighbourhood or anything, just safe enough to walk back to the hotel from the subway at night).
I guess another question would be as we're looking for hotels on a budget are there any particularly bad neighbourhoods in Chicago that we should avoid?
