We accessed Priceline through the BFT link.
We needed one room for Friday night for 3 nights, on the same day, at 2:30 pm, on the same day.
We had business in the downtown area, so we did not want to be out in the O'Hare area, where there was a 4 stat hotel, probably the Hyatt Regency O'Hare, for $77 per night, plus parking. 'Hare Express Deal for a 3.5 star with free parking, for $77.00, probably the Hyatt Rosemont. This was attractive, but would have meant up to a 45 minute drive each way, each day to downtown for a music video shoot.
We started looking at Express Deals on Thursday, the day before the shoot downtown, but the 4 star hotels were all in the $160 dollar per night range, and there was a 3.5 star, probably the Holiday Inn Trade Mart, for $122. We only considered hotels with Priceline Guest ratings of at least 8 out of ten, which is the main value of Express Deals over bidding.ofriday morning, the day we were travelling, the Express Deal prices had not dropped at noon. However, at 2:30 pm, this 4 star in the Millennium Park area popped up at $110, which we purchased.
The Hyatt had a Priceline retail price for tonight of $299.00.
This is an excellent hotel at a very good price. Priceline gives the hotel an 8.7 guest rating. The hotel is also in a very nice area, with many excellent restaurants nearby.
Valet parking with in and out is $65, but there is a self park with an elevator right up to the hotel, which is only running us $16.00 per night, if we park late in the evening after our business is done, and leave by 8:30 am each morning.
