Looks like HI Chicago is an option for a weekend hack-a-thon.

Hi Mr. McAdams,

Thank you for your interest in Hostelling International Chicago! I'm
so glad to hear of your interest in bringing a group to stay here in
December. We do have availability the weekend of December 14-16. We
are a great hostel in the heart of downtown Chicago, just blocks from
the Art Institute, Grant Park, Millennium Park, Museum Campus and the
Magnificent Mile. We are also within steps of all major bus and train
lines to get you to any other place in the city that you wish to
visit. Do you know what your plans are for while you're in the city? I
would be more than happy to offer you recommendations of things to do
while you are here. We have discounts to many area attractions, such
as the Sears Tower, Hancock Observatory, IMAX Theatre at Navy Pier,
Museum of Contemporary Art, Untouchables Gangster Tours, walking tours
with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, bike tours with Bobby's Bike
Hike, and river tours with Chicago from the Lake. We also have
discounts to Stefani's Tuscany Café for a great meal or Kingston Mines
if you like blues.

Rates range from $27 to $33/person/night plus tax, depending on room
type. Some rooms have an en suite bath ($33-$31) and others have a
shared bath in the hall ($29-$27). Please reference which room type
you would prefer.  The rooms are separated by gender, and we try to
keep groups in rooms to themselves, with no outside travelers. The
Hostel offers a continental breakfast for each guest. You also have
the option of storing your own food and making it in our
state-of-the-art kitchen.

In order to confirm a reservation with us, I will need you to fill out
a group contract and return a signed copy to us along with a 50%
deposit. Your final balance along with your final numbers is due 14
business days prior to arrival. Once you are ready to book, I can
prepare a contract for you and email it as an attachment. You will
then have 2 weeks to return the contract to us with a deposit in order
to guarantee your dates and rates. If you have any questions or
concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to
hearing back from you soon.

Best regards,


Emily Paxson
