Need some chicago otter help

I'm planning to take a friend of mine to Chicago for his birthday, the weekend of May 12th. I do not want to rent a car, so I'm trying to find a hotel that is close to a train station. (no more than 1/2 mile walk) I'm flying into O'hare so I can take the blue line into the city and to my hotel. Anyone know of a good one (not too far out, and less then 200 a night)
Or
A map that has the the train stops on it with an overlay of hotels would work too.

I think there's a best western on Halsted and Madison or it may be Monroe. Right by Greektown. It's around 2 or 3 blocks from the Train.

Edit: it's a Quality Inn not Best Western.

Best rate they seem to have for May 12 is $219, so it's a shade over your limit, but it's a great location if you want to be in the city.

If you want to be in the city and doing city things, don't worry about the pink line -- that's a commuter line, not a tourist line. Tourist stuff is mostly on the red line.
