Two Chicago hotels are offering sub-$200 rates right now, encouraging visitors to enjoy the best of the Windy City's twinkling lights and steaming cups of hot cocoa. Whether you're looking to do some shopping or some ice skating, these themed packages will hit the spot.
Snug in the Loop with shopping and theater right beyond its doors, this 122-room Kimpton hotel has a new package to get travelers into the spirit of the season.
