Chicago Hotel bidding on Priceline-which zone is better?

Jump to last reply

We are taking our first trip to Chicago in May and I am thrilled to be going to such a big, exciting city. A big plus is that I can probably use a strategy to bid on a 4* hotel using Priceline to get something within our budget.

I am not sure if the "Millennium Park, Loop & Grant Park" zone or the "North Michigan Ave-River North" zone is preferable? Or are they comparable?

We will not have a car and need a location that will permit us to use public transportation easily and efficiently. We will be hitting tourist attractions like an architectural boat tour, art Institute, perhaps a Blues Club and perhaps scheduling a tour with a Chicago greeter.

I won't be picking a specific hotel, of course, as this is Priceline. So if you could just advise me whether these locations have any pros and cons I would appreciate it!
