Accommodation in Chicago, fall 2018

Dear Friends

Assuming a budget of ~$150 per night (need only a clean room and a good shower - would not like to pay for Gym/Pool and conference rooms..) I found no deals in the Loop or downtown area (where I will be spending most of my time). I am willing to commute and will be much obliged to have some recommendations regarding other Chicago neighborhoods (as close as possible to the loop, safe and with good public transportation) for my search,

Particular hotels recommendations around this price range will also be appreciated! (I will be visiting Chicago Sept 12-16) . THX!

There’s a huge convention at McCormick Place during your dates. 115000 attendees are expected. Hotel rates will be high.

Consider a hotel near O’hare. It’s about an hour commute to/from downtown on the CTA blue line train. Use www.booking.com or similar site for availability within your budget.

Getaway Hostel has private rooms with shared bath in your price range. A private bath is available, but above your budget. It is on a quiet street in an upscale neighborhood, about 20 minutes from downtown by train, and the train station is nearby.

My first recommendation would be to change your dates, but if you cannot, book something that can be cancelled, and soon!

Check out "Dates to Avoid" sticky in Top Questions. (not available on phone apps.) You may want to juggle your dates.
