I received an e-mail from a contact in Chicago over the weekend offering several discounted vacation packages from Hotel 71 – which is right down the street from the Intercontinental Chicago (where I stayed).
Deals include discounted rooms, food and beverage credit, tours, etc.
I tried to spend a night at Hotel 71 when I was in town, but renovations were on-going at the time.
I hear good things – yet of course cannot confirm at the moment.
If anyone wants to visit the city this summer, write to me (email@example.com) and I will pass along the opportunities.
