Thanks to all!
I am planning to make it to Chicago the first weekend of May, 2013. But they are way to proud of the Downtown Renaissance for me, so I've made reservations at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook for 125/night including tax. It's 16 miles west of downtown, no charge for parking and I don't know about now, but the last time I was there, about a year ago, we got comp'ed breakfast on the weekend. I'm pretty sure I can catch a taxi from Oak Brook to downtown for less than the cost of parking at the Renaissance for one day. But that's just me...still hoping to be able to have a beer with whoever is there!
