Priceline Hotel: 4* Chicago (Chicago Loop - Grant Park) Renaissance Blackstone Chicago Hotel

This site has proven helpful so I wanted to return the favor. This was an outstanding deal even though a Sunday and Monday on Labor Day weekend. Regular price right now is $209 per night. To figure out the hotel I had to use both the app and the desktop site, selecting neighborhood then narrow down by amenities. It was hard to decide if the hotel was going to be the Blackstone or Hilton because the number of reviews was not displayed this time on the Express Deal (desktop site). The app does not show that info either but does show the regular price which is very helpful . I did not want the Hilton based on some reviews, so I had to do more filtering as regular pricing made it too close to call. The deciding factor was "free internet", which Hilton didn't have listed. After narrowing that down, only the Blackstone could have been the qualifying hotel.

8+ review score (though for some reason when you click on the deal, it then shows 7+)

Congrats on your success and Welcome to Betterbidding.


Definitely a terrific deal well in advance for this classic South Loop property. Glad you are pleased with the win and are looking forward toy our stay. Please let me know if you have any Chicago city questions. I'd also consider contacting the hotel to see if there was any way you could get a park/lake view.


Sharing any other wins is greatly appreciated, as the information helps others researching.

A couple of things I should add. Regular price is $209 for the room I got on most sites, it's $179 on Priceline. Also it says "room assigned upon check-in". However when I went on to the hotel's web site and I put in the confirmation number, it says I have a standard King Room.
