I believe Uber was consistently the cheapest option by +\- $5. We stayed relatively close to the hotel (within 5-10 miles throughout our visit) so I can’t speak to further distances. The hotel is relatively deep in the downtown area however so you would need additional transportation after arriving via train or plane.

"We had a corner room overlooking Michigan and Superior Avenues. It was far from the elevator and VERY quiet. It was a beautiful room!"
"Get a room that faces Michigan Ave. High floor."
"Ask for a quiet room"
"The only problem with hotel is that the main fire station of Chicago is very close."
"Request Lake View"
