Once again the Congress Plaza Hotel is offering extremely reasonable rates in a landmark Michigan Ave. hotel to all Chicago Blues Weekend guests. It’s a short walk from Buddy Guy’s Legends, Blues Express Shuttles and Chicago Blues History Tour will make pickups there, and it’s right across the street from beautiful Grant Park and a short cab ride from House of Blues.
