last minute hotels

by 75Antonio

Has anyone used the hotwire.com for lastminute hotels?, is it reliable? Anyother site for lastminute hotels in the U.S.?

Re: last minute hotels

by TexasDave

Yes it is reliable , as is hotels.com and several others. Another good one is quickbook.com.

BTW, it's not necessary to post the exact same question for every U.S. city..

Re: last minute hotels

Re: last minute hotels

I have use Hotwire and got some great deals with
the site. They are reliable and have found that
if you check the star ratings,you can find a
hotel for your budget.I get 3 stars and above
for all my stays, and it has been great.

Re: last minute hotels

by BellaBlonde

Hotwire.com is a good website. Hotels.com is also good, along with expedia.com and priceline.com

Re: last minute hotels

by Dabs

Hotwire.com and Priceline.com are both good for Chicago BUT remember that they are blind bidding and that if you don't like the hotel, tough cookies. And if you have to cancel, you still have to pay. Non cancelable, non changeable.

Check www.betterbidding.com or www.biddingfortravel.com before bidding. I've used Priceline a lot for LA and London and have saved a bundle, friends of mine have used it in Chicago with great success

www.quickbook.com

It's the non-chain hotels and trends more boutique. Much cheaper and much better character. Always find something great!

Best to cross-reference with tripadvisor.com if you're concerned at all.

Travel Tips for Chicago

Lots of great places to walk!

by spunkygirl60637

My favorite walk, though, is strolling across the Michigan Avenue Wacker Drive bridge, over the Chicago River. Views of the city, from many different vantage points. My favorite, though, is the one from the Wacker Drive Bridge.

by FluffHead

P-U-Bs! GO to the pubs, they have the pub per inhabitant in the planet! Never miss Map Room (www.maproom.com) and the wonders of Chicagoan night life....summer, I'd advice you to go scuba diving or windsurfing in the lake thouhg I didn't have the chance.
You can't, in any circunstances, miss the Shed Aquarium.....it's the largest on earth and they have species from everywhere in the planet! I can't not mension Map Room, Cro bar, Circues, and, PLEASE, take a walk at Lincoln Park during daylight...it's one of my favourites walkings....

If one's able to take a walk all the down from Michigan Avenue till the Loop and check the CSO or the library or even just walk, walk and walk.........it would definately be a great experience!

The South Side: Bridgeport

by sambarnett

Staid and kinda boring, Bridgeport, west of the Dan Ryan, in the 3000 block, is home to the Chicago White Sox, numerous mayors and a sizeable chunk of Irish-descended folks. It's a place of bungelows, corner taverns where the beer is served in cans and a lot of churches. It's not an exciting place, but its role in Chicago history is strong. It's also my new home, for me, this is REAL Chicago. The 35th Avenue/Sox Red Line stop is convenient for reaching Comiskey Park (the main reason for coming here) but those wanting to see more of the area are best using a car or the number 8 Halsted bus.

Oak Park neighborhood

by Pawtuxet

There are a number of pleasant tree lined streets in Oak Park...a neighborhood just outside of the city. I'm sure this is where the commuters settle when they want to be away from the city. It's on the commuter rail line so it is an easy commute.
I was struck by some of the late Victorian architecture here which so closely resembles Edgewood, which is a neighborhood close to my house in Rhode Island. Of course you can see the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright as well...which most people come to see. I wandered for an entire afternoon after seeing Wright's house (which is great). The entire neighborhood was an architecture buff's delight. I've included a few pics of inconsequential homes which will give you the "feel" of the area. Take the time to visit if you are in to architecture.

One of the coolest things that...

by bruingirl

One of the coolest things that I got to do in Chicago was going on the riverboat tour. I know, it sounds cheesy, but it is really cool! It was an hour long tour on a riverboat, going through downtown Chicago. The tour guide explains the significance of the major buildings and you really learn to appreciate the architectural history behind Chicago. Chicago is just an amazingly beautiful city! The river that runs through downtown, flanked by lush vegetation and tall sky-scrapers is something you will never get in any other major metropolis. Sitting on a concrete wall at the end of the Navy Pier and just taking in the view of the city skyline is just phenomenal! The lake is a serene, light aqua color and the city just sparkles in the sunlight (what would we do without window-washers???). The contrast between the calm of nature and the bustle of a major city with grand, majestic looking sky-scrapers is definitely a sight to behold. This is the view you see in the picture in the beginning of this page.
