I'm curious about this too. When I went to Denver the year before, it was expensive, but that was my fault. I rented a car (which I probably won't do in Chicago), and I didn't share a hotel room (but I will probably share if I can next year). So it was pricey. The car was about $250 and the room was about $350 (?), but I only stayed Wed-Sat (3 nights) - a mistake. Next year, I hope to fly in Tu or Wed and go home Sun am. Depends on what my family back home can handle!
I think I was able to get a cheap flight though out of Oakland. I left my car at the airport bec it was cheaper than getting a shuttle from where I live, and I had to get there at 5 am.
There were restaurants and a Starbucks within walking distance, so that was great for food. We weren't locked into eating at the hotel all the time.
