Although winter in Chicago is the best time to snag off-season bargains, the city’s 29 magnificent miles of lakefront and outdoor festivals make it one of our Top Ten Quick Summer Getaways – and well worth shelling out a few extra dollars. Visiting during the summer doesn’t have to set you back – as the 4-star Hotel Palomar proves with its Summer Playground package starting from just $159/night. Having just opened its doors in 2009, the eco-friendly hotel is fitting in quite nicely in the River North neighborhood ? already receiving a 97 percent approval rating by Trip Advisor users.

THE VALUE Most River North hotels average around $200-$300 in the summer months, but on top of pocketing some quick cash, you’ll also receive a $25 dining credit and a free in-room movie. Wake up each morning to a complimentary iced coffee, followed by afternoon Arnold Palmers, and sangria in the evening – the perfect combination for a blissful summer day.

THE CATCH These rates are not valid every day, so you’ll have to be flexible with your dates.
