Plan Ahead for Holiday Deals in Chicago

The holiday season is just around the corner, and festivities will soon light up the Windy City. 

Plan a visit around these events early with Chicago hotel deals and save up to 60%. Spend the money saved on some Magnificent Mile holiday shopping! 

  • Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, Nov. 19 … This annual parade starts off the holiday season with fun events all day such as a marching band, carolers, ice sculpture demonstrations and, of course, a visit from Santa. Plus, it marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season and window displays that adorn Michigan Avenue.
  • 98th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, Nov. 23 … Daley Plaza draws quite a crowd for this event for the city’s official tree. 
  • Ice skating in Millennium Park, Nov. 18 - mid-March … Glide around with Chicago’s stunning skyline as a background. Even better, this is free to the public.    

In addition to fun events, the holiday season can offers up great hotel deals. For $79 per night, stay just one block from Michigan Avenue at the Inn of Chicago. For $109 per night, snag a suite at The Seneca complete with a full kitchen. For $159 per night, experience the trendy 4-star W Chicago – Lakeshore.

Once the room is taken care of and holiday plans are made, grab a local deal in Chicago for a good meal or pampering at top spas.

Note: Rates appear and will be quoted in U.S. dollars.
