Chicago hotel for 6 people

I am heading to Chicago in June and am trying to make this a reasonably priced trip. Does anyone have recommendations of any hotel rooms in downtown Chicago/Magnificent Mile that would hold 6 people (3 couples)? I looked into an Embassy Suites with 1 king bed and 1 pull-out sofa. I think we'd be all right with that, a few people wouldn't mind sleeping on the floor for a few hours. We're interested in the breakfast and manager's reception at the Embassy. I know the Embassy charges for any "extra" people over 2 per room, so if we "snuck" extras in, would they still be allowed at the manager's reception or is there some type of wristband or something? Any other recommendations? I've come to realize that parking fees are outrageous in Chicago - $45 per night at the Embassy...

There are no hotels which would allow six adults in one room. In addition to the simple logistics of space and one bathroom for six people, there are fire and safety issues. The exact dates of your visit will dictate the hotel rates as you may be competing with a large convention or event for rooms.

It's interesting that you're not concerned about the people you've "snuck" into your room, but you're worried that you won't be able to compound what your stealing from the hotel by allowing them to eat free at the receptions.

Since most rooms are stocked with linens and supplies for four people, at most, what will the others do for towels, pillows, sheets, etc.? Don't you think housekeeping and hotel security will begin to get suspicious if you call down daily for extra towels and they see all these people heading into and out of one room?

In addition, do you have a plan if the hotel discovers the people you've "snuck" into your room and evicts you for violating the rental terms you signed at check-in or adds hefty charges to your credit card?

Embassy Suites offers some rooms w/ 2 Doubles and the Sofabed. Not sure if they'll book 6 there. The Residence Inn Mag Mile has 2-room suites w/ King/Queen & Sofabed that will book 6.

Search this forum for lower priced parking alternatives.

IMO, you're better off looking for 2+ rooms at a promo rate as posted elsewhere. Change your dates if you're overlapping a big convention. Hit a diner for breakfast and BYO to host your own reception.

Check choicehotels.com for a new Comfort Suites opening around April 2nd on Michigan Avenue. They have a 2 BR Suite, one BR with a king, one with a queen, and a sofa with frig and microwave. There may be only one suite like this. Breakfast is also included. Cost would be reasonable split between 3 couples. Also, check out the deals on TravelZoo.com. You may do better with everyone in their own room at the Hyatt that is including breakfast for 2, or others listed.

Do the people that get "snuck in" to your hotel that sleep on the floor have to pay? Or are the 2 other couples who get beds paying?

The hospitality industry is loosing money left and right. More people than I care to know are being laid off.

If you "snuck" extra people into the "freebies", you are already pushing a hard economy. If you thought about it, so did others. Perhaps soon it would be too much, and either the "freebies" would go away, or they would be greatly curtailed.

Plus I could not imagine sleeping 6 people in one room (even a suite), unless I was on spring break in college.

You can try and rent a condo/house in the downtown Gold coast area. Check out the website:

www.vrbo.com

It's a site where people rent out there condos/flats for weekends, weeks, or even months. There are a lot of 3 bedroom places. I used it for my family for my wedding weekend and it worked perfectly!!
