If you're going to the 4Cs this year, Marcy has found an alternative to
the Palmer House that is much cheaper. It's the Best Western River North
Hotel, which is about a mile from the Palmer House.

Marcy didn't book through the web, but got a good rate anyway. Here's
the contact info:
125 W. Ohio St.
Chicago, IL 60610
Phone: (312) 467-0800
Fax: (312) 467-1665
Toll Free: (800) 727-0800
The rates are $92/night for Wednesday & Thursday, and $119/night for
Friday and Saturday. There's a 14.9% sales tax. (Marcy figures that it
will be $244.00 each for four nights when we split the cost. The Palmer
House is $175.00 per night for a double room.)

cab back at night. (I plan to walk the Magnificent Mile in the day
It would also be nice to see some of you before the Canadian Caucus
meets-- there never seems to be enough time to talk over dinner.
