  • Chicago Cheap Hotels Guide

    Chicago is a Midwestern gem, offering both laidback charm and bohemian sophistication. Finding cheap hotels in Chicago frees up your budget so that you can experience everything the city has to offer, from deep-dish pizza to the Art Institute. Orbitz helps you find the budget-friendly hotels that match your expectations.

    When considering inexpensive accommodations, location matters. Since hotels in downtown Chicago tend to carry higher price tags, you may prefer to seek out hotels in surrounding suburbs. Fortunately, the city’s excellent public transportation system helps you feel as if most attractions are right at your doorstep. By exploring the suburbs and neighborhoods of Chicago, such as Bronzeville or Edgewater, you also experience a more unique trip and see more of the surrounding area. While these hotels may not be at the center of the action, they usually offer luxurious amenities that improve your vacation experience. Certain hotels located near O’Hare International Airport feature lower everyday rates, yet are located only about 18 miles from downtown. If staying right on the Loop or other hotspots is important to you, Orbitz.com can help you find the most budget-friendly options in these popular areas. Whether you are staying on the Magnificent Mile or have opted for a slightly more out-of-the-way location, chain hotels often provide essential amenities at reasonable rates. For travelers who prefer boutique hotels, planning your trip to Chicago in advance is a smart way to find discounts that turn popular hotels into more affordable destinations.

    Savvy travelers know that finding good deals requires weighing different options. When it comes to cheap hotels in Chicago, Orbitz helps you spend less time compromising and more time discovering accommodations that fit your individual needs. In the Windy City, you can enjoy comfort and amenities without sacrificing your budget.
