Looking for an Affordable Hotel?

Try Hotwire. I have to admit, I was skeptical at first, but Hotwire turned me into a believer.

My cousin A. and I are going to Chicago next weekend to see Wicked (!) but have been putting off getting a hotel for several reasons (mainly because I've been slacking). I finally rolled the dice with Hotwire Friday and was rewarded with a two-night stay at the Intercontinental Chicago for almost 50% off the regular room rate!

I'm not saying Hotwire will work every time - and since I'm not a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of person, it was a little scary reserving a hotel I didn't know the name or location of - but in this case, Hotwire made my day!

That is fantastic! I'm so glad it worked out for you. I'm too much of a wuss to use it myself...

YAY FOR WICKED!!!! Have a WONDERFUL time. I can't wait to read your posts about it. (First time? Or a re-peater?)
