Where to stay
The nearest hotel is the Days Inn in Lakeview, where we reserved a room block ($278/night single, $296/night double; group code CGWEAS). Other options in Lakeview are the Days Inn, The Willows, and the Inn at Lincoln Park. About the same distance from the alley in another direction are The Robey and The Hollander in Wicker Park, a funkier, more artsy part of town. There are also two nearby hostels: Getaway Hostel (Lincoln Park) and Urban Holiday Lofts (Wicker Park). All are easily accessible via public transportation. You might also try airbnb.com for some options within walking distance.
