Hotwire Hotel: 3* Chicago (Chicago Midway Airport (mdw)) Hyatt Place Chicago Midway Airport

Total price was $173.74 since I had a $15 off Hotwire Coupon (purchase over $100).   Taxes are VERY high in Bedford Park (17.5%) so I calculated the real cost is about $74/night and no fee for Hotwire.   The post said the rate was discounted from $117, but the cheapest rate I could find on the web was an advance purchase for $119.   I also checked PRICELINE EXPRESS, and I'm almost positive they had the same hotel for $73/night (total cost of $184.96) which was a tad cheaper if one didn't have a Hotwire coupon. I didn't have a coupon for Priceline. Priceline did list a price of $119.  I'm a former southside Chicagoan so I'm very familiar with the area, and I was almost positive I was getting the Hyatt Place.  The hotel gets superb reviews (4.5/5 on Trip Advisor), and this was mentioned on the Hotwire listing as  well as a 95% recommended rate.    I am very pleased with my purchase.  I haven't used HOTWIRE or PRICELINE much in the past few years since I think their deals are not as good as they were years ago (hotels have stepped up with discounts, points, and freebies), but I frequently check.  I think I forgot to use the link since I haven't been using Hotwire or Priceline.  Sorry.


The hotel was listed as an "ALL-SUITES" hotel, not just a plain hotel.  This is a tip-off.    The amenities shown when I purchased it were free breakfast, free internet, free parking (which is important to me and many hotels in that area charge), pet-friendly, pool, airport shuttle, smoke-free,  and fitness.   After the purchase, the amenities shown on my receipt included those but added restaurant, business center, indoor pool, and internet access (a duplication). 


If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks for the tip on the Priceline Coupon and Hotwire Coupons.  I was unaware of them.  I haven't been on this site for a long time.  My Hotwire deal was still better than PRICELINE with the 5% discount coupon, but a coupon might make the difference for a future purchase.  I don't miss the Chicago weather.  I'll try to remember to use the links.   I was vaguely aware of the bidding helper feature, but I used to by a lot of hotels so I was pretty confident about the Hyatt Place.

I forgot to review the hotel.  It's quite nice -- comfortable bed, pleasant ambiance, good furniture, etc. .  Rooms are large although it's a newer design, and they aren't as large as other Hyatt Places I've stayed at, eg, Baltimore, DC, Ft. Lauderdale, Lombard.  The bed is not separate from the suite area, and it didn't have a wet bar or large sectional couch.   Breakfast is good although we were there on a weekend, and the clientele was largely families and groups.  Unfortunately, some parents did not supervise their children at breakfast.  I did get Hyatt points for participating in the "Go Green" program although I had to follow-up even though I was assured I'd get them upon check-in.  I'd recommend the hotel -- probably give it a 4/5 .
