Catch: New Year's on a Wednesday. I don't have the surrounding days off.

I live around 3 hours south of Chicago. I am planning on driving over Tuesday night after work and staying somewhere in Chicago. Spend perhaps "New Year midnight" in Chicago, spend a little bit of time on Wednesday and drive home by the night so I can return to work on Thursday.
What are my options? Where's the best place to be? What's the thing I should be seeing?
(Any other suggestions would help too -- I generally stay in either Best Western or La Quinta since I have some kind of a frequent visitor plan with them. Any suggestions on where/which area to stay? Any other "warnings"?)
