Parking at the hotel is very easy. Unfortunately it is approximately $60 a night. Forget the car take public transportation. It is easier and much cheaper

Welcome to TA. Do NOT rent a car in the city. That hotel name still confuses me: it's the old Hotel Sax in Marina City. It is centrally located on the river with River North, The Loop and Michigan Ave a few blocks away.

If you want to rent a car budget the daily rental cost plus $60 per day hotel parking costs plus another $40 per day parking if you plan on using your car to get around.

No need for a car for you if you are going to stay downtown.
