Wow. Out of curiosity I checked Hotwire again, and everything is 170+. Swissotel's own website now says Sept. 2 is sold out whereas there were rooms to be had last night at $199. The hotel no longer comes up as a 4* possible on Hotwire.

I was lucky this morning.

I guess as with airfares, availability fluctuates constantly and if you see the right price you need to jump in.

This worked out fine, by the way. I didn't find the location at all inconvenient -- the walk to Michigan was short, I thought.

The garage, though, is not in 303 E Wacker. It's more like 100 something Wacker. And it's unmanned. We had some difficulty getting out.

We got there at 8 pm and the room wasn't ready. They gave us free drinks at the bar.

The hotel itself is a bit tired, I'd say. But no real complaints. Thanks everyone!
