$135 per night + 16.4% tax

I'm not overly familiar with Chicago, but this looks like a good location, and a nice property.  Mass transit is about 5 blocks away.  Price seems reasonable, for Chicago.

Hopefully some of our members here who are familiar with Chicago, like Jeff, will comment.

The hotel also as a terrace on the roof which may be an ideal location for the meet and greet.

Dennis

First, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, AND THANK YOU again.

The property looks great, the price is good (especially for Chicago), and the rooms look clean and comfortable.

So I'd be happy with this selection.


You truly are a wizard when it comes to finding us a hotel.

Hey Dennis,

It looks like a winner. The location is great and I love the idea of using the terrace.

HUGS,

This is a nice place although for some it is not near Boystown (which I am sure some will visit!)  I hope there will not be an additional charge for internet access (on the hotel website it seems to be only available for a charge) and I would caution drivers that the daily parking charge will be eye popping (but then this will be true of any downtown Chicago hotel.)  Also the L is not immediately nearby...but then I can use the exercise.  Nevertheless, the proximity to the Magnificent Mile and entire downtown area is a strong positive (pun intended!)

I hope we can work out a good date for AMG.

Dennis - you are amazing... you have a unique gift for finding great hotels at a great price (and w/ good amenties, location, etc.)

THANK YOU!

For those that don't know, finding an appropriate hotel at a great price is no easy feat.... but Dennis always seems to be able to pull it off.

Very pleased with the selection - keep us updated (which I am sure you will) as to the outcome - sounds like everyone who has posted is "onboard."

Thank you again!

Free wi-fi has been negotiated for all rooms booked within the contract. The group needs to be confirmed by the end of the week. So far, it sounds like everyone is on board.

Also, once confirmed, I have menu options and prices for the meet and greet which can be held on the rooftop terrace.

I'm totally on board with this choice.  There's a nice hole in the wall place right across the street on Ohio avenue.  No walking up hills for miles. ;D

Did we narrow down or decide on the dates yet?
