I got a room at the Hyatt Regency Chicago a week or 3 ago, and I think
they have more vacancy. I chose there for external reasons which are
probably not available to most people, and their "rack rate" is
probably rather high. It is near a few other nice hotels like the "W"
and Hotel 71 on Wacker just off of Michigan. It's near the red line,
which makes it reasonable for getting to IIT.

My point is: you can still find places to stay if you're flexible with
location and "creative" or whatever with cost. Chicago is a big town;
you can find somewhere near the red or green lines to stay that will
fit your circumstances.

Just because (if) the doorms are full doesn't mean you shouldn't come!
