3* Magnolia Hotel -SMU/ParkCities 1/16-1/19 $55

<t>Bid in the SMU/Park Cities zone because I was not thrilled with the prospect of the 3.5* Crowne Plaza over in Marketplace/DAL.  And while the 4* Hilton Anatole would have been acceptable, the fact that they charge a 2% fee as well as $20 for parking was a deterrent.<br/> <br/> So I started in the...

Sheryl, I'm guessing mcbrandt meant 4* not $4. It makes sense when I read it that way.

I'm surprised that the hotel requires renovation, it is virtually brand new... I watched them build it only a few years ago. Friends who have stayed at the Four Points said it was very nice. Marriott sure is taking over the hotel business in Chicago!

<t>Thanks for the comments, Arrzee. Appreciated! I wondered about the toll fees they mention. In the end, I reserved with Enterprise in Condado, which was somewhat more expensive (but not as bad as Avis or Hertz). The reason being "they pick you up", which will end up saving me $40 in taxi fare sinc...
