hotels at high season run $240/night up. Ave. around $340. If you can find better than that, grab it. Since you're from Dubuque, you might drive into Chicago. Park you car and forget it. Budget $40-$50/ day parking costs. Museums aren't going to discount when they have more people trying to get in than their occupation licenses allow.

Bargain hotels go fast during the summer, and there is a large convention here at the end of June. Try a hostel - you can book via booking.com or directly.

I just booked today for June 28-July 1. Used Priceline auction style, not knowing what hotel we were getting but ended up with DoubleTree right downtown! Perfect! Outdoor pool too! Got it for $125 a night. Not bad in my opinion! Maybe could have gotten it for better but I'll take it! Hope that helps some!

By the way, June 29-30 is the Gold Coast Art Fair behind the Art Institute in Grant Park. No admission, the granddaddy of our local art fairs (30 yrs), huge. Not the greatest live entertainment and good food booths just this side of ptomaine parlors.

You should check out this marketplace for hotel rooms. They have a room for a great price in Chicago for the end of June.

The reason HoJo has good prices is that you do not want to stay there. It is never recommended. Molly, you would be better of at Hostel International than at Howard Johnson's.

saw your post about how you got your room at Doubletree on Priceline for $125 a night: Id like to use Priceline but we have 2 adults and 2 kids (only need 1 room) with 2 queen beds. Is it true that on Priceline they will only give you a room suited for Double Occupancy?? was the room you booked just for 2 of you?

Thanks in advance
