Going up to Chicago in early November for a show, and I need to find a hotel room for the night. The show is at The Empty Bottle, which google says is on Western and Cortez, near Wicker Park area. I do not know Chicago terribly well, and am unsure of what area to look for hotels in.
Preferably, I could find a place that is:
Walking distance (or simple train ride) from Western & Cortez
We have a group of 4 guys going, and would like a relatively relaxed environment that is not likely to be appalled by four dudes being four dudes. Not that we are loud or obnoxious or anything, but I'd rather not have the Monopoly Man looking down his nose at my beer drinkin' every time I walk outside.
Bonus points for suggestions for booking methods that might save a couple bucks!
Any tips MeFi?
