    Duke Game Hotels

    I have asked this question before but now that the tickets are due I thought I'd throw it out there again. Did anybody get any good deals for the game through hotwire or anything? I don't know the first thing about Chicago or where to stay for the night of the game.

    Re: Duke Game Hotels

    I stayed here while attending a conference last January, as it was about a block from the conference hotel. Very nice hotel. Beware that one side borders the train, so it will be a little noisy if you get a room there. I got a great rate through Orbitz back then. Sometimes you just hit it right I guess...

    Mother-in-law works part-time for the downtown DSM Marriott doing banquet serving. We get the associate rate most of the time, as long as we book far enough in advance (especially for the bigger cities). We booked the day this was announced - staying from Wednesday through the weekend because as it happens, I have a photo seminar that weekend in the area. :)
