    Where are people staying in Chicago for the Duke Game?

    Any deals out there? We'll be staying in Chi Town for the Duke game the night of the game... I've only been to Chicago once before and I stayed with friends. I don't know what hotels are nearby and I don't know if there are any good places to hit up on Priceline or Hotwire or whatever. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys,

    I'd like to go but betting that I won't find anyone willing to make the trip with me.

    Clones,

    try Cheap Flights, Airline Tickets, Hotels, Travel Deals - Search Data from 100's of Travel Sites at KAYAK

    It's a website that searches all of the discount websites at once... pretty cool. I've found some pretty good deals lately.

    Re: Where are people staying in Chicago for the Duke Game?

    Don't know if I should start a new thread for this or not, but what bar district are most Cyclone fans going to be hanging out at pre and post game? I was assuming Rush and Division, but figured I'd check.

    Re: Where are people staying in Chicago for the Duke Game?

    I would look into staying outside Chicago like in Aurora or Naperville. We went to a cubs game on a weekend this summer and stayed at a Country Inn and Suites or something like that for I think 70 bucks a night. It is about a 30 minute drive to downtown where you'll need to go, but it will save a ton of money.
