Planning trip from Toronto to Chicago


We are planning a family trip from Toronto to Chicago. We will drive from Toronto to Chicago. I was looking at the hotel prices in downtown Chicago but they are very high prices. I was wondering if we could stay out of downtown at place from where it is easy to access downtown via public transit and we save some money for hotel stay.

I will appreciate your feedback.
