I will be in Chicago(travelling solo, 40yr Male) June 20th for 4 nights. I do not want to pay the high hotel rates in Downtown area. Am considering the Itasca area. I will have a car. I will do some attractions downtown, but wanting opinions mainly on alternate areas to stay(that have more affordable rates) Hotwire has great rates in Itasca area. I know it's a bit of a drive to downtown. Would the Northbrook, Glenview, Mt Prospect area be ok??
Any opinions, good or bad are welcomed !!
