  4. Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is booked solid for the Chicago Comic Con. Went looking for something in "Chicago Loop - Millennium Park" or "Downtown - River Walk" zones and ended up with this. I believe this is in the "Downtown - River Walk" zone, but you guys have the zones listed differently on here. Very happy with the price.
  5. Another success. $111.40 after fees. Could've gotten on Hotwire for $120.65. Booking direct was $150+.
  6. I just moved to the area (South Loop) and this is a perfect place to put visiting relatives. :) We can park their car under the L at the Cermak Green Line stop using an app for $6 a day (vs $36 at Hyatt). We will be driving them around anyway. I agree with other comments you've made on here -- this is not an ideal place for seeing the city on your own.
  7. $359.82 with taxes and fees. They want $625.01 for the cheapest room on Hyatt's website and it looks like this same place is offered on Hotwire for $396.36. I was hoping for the $60 deal that somebody got on 7/30, but this isn't bad. This is an easy property to get since it's currently the only 4* in the zone.
  8. Started at $40, and used all 6 rebid zones. Looks like the same hotel might be going for $61 on Hotwire.
  9. Was getting shut out on Priceline going up to $54 for 3* near the airport, and up to $61 for 3* downtown, so went with this one instead. Pretty happy with the result as some friends of mine paid $58 for the same hotel and same dates earlier this month. I don't think they use this board.

  10. After trying and failing to get a room from 4/2-4/6 in this area, going all the way up to $90/nt, I ended up booking a Hotwire room for $81/nt at the Crowne Plaza for 4/2-4/5. Then I came back to bid on PRICELINE for 4/5-4/6. Cheapest room in this star class on HOTWIRE was $82, so I tried $60, and got it on my first bid. I'm Marriott Platinum, so I had checked the hotel's web rate and knew it was $119. I'll certainly take the discount - excited to get a Marriott!
  11. Tried PRICELINE all the way up to $90/nt, but it wasn't cooperating for 4/2-4/6...then I thought to check HOTWIRE...lo and behold, a very attractive rate for this property. Will first try Priceline for 4/5-4/6, but may end up taking what looks to be the Hyatt Regency for $82 for that night.

  12. I'm in awe of Priceline right now...I know it doesn't always work this well, but I'm feeling pretty great about this deal. Had been considering flying from Phoenix to Cincinnati, and nonstop round-trip tickets were around $290. But by the time I was ready to pull the trigger on the flight, the cheapest tickets were $623, with long connections. The nonstop tickets had jumped to $798. So I tried Priceline airfare for the first time. Not too hopeful, I put in a starting bid of $225 (ends up being $252 with fees), and won the nonstop tickets on the first try. I had a feeling these airlines bump the prices of tickets dramatically the week before flights just because they can, but I didn't think it would be this easy to skirt the price hikes and get a reasonably priced ticket this late. This is only a modest 14% discount over the previous price of the airfare, but it's a 68% discount over the current price of these specific nonstop tickets (which I really did want badly), and a 59% discount from the cheapest available tickets of any kind for these dates. The only thing that bothers me is that I probably could have bid even lower, but I guess I shouldn't complain when I just saved several hundred dollars...
  13. I thought that Priceline allowed bids up to midnight the day of booking, but apparently the deadline's 11 PM. So I got shutout of the great Priceline Wyndham deal. Might have been out of luck anyway since Hotels.com says there are only 5 rooms left. That left me going to Hotwire. Hoping to get the Wyndham, I saw a three-star with Restaurant, Fitness, Business, and an option to choose beds (costs extra) for $51 and paid for the room. Much to my dismay, it was not the Wyndham, but the Four Points. I doubt it will be a lower quality experience - it's just that this is 3-4 more miles from the interstate than the Wyndham, so it's a bit inconvenient. And I know that the Wyndham is great, but I've never stayed at this Four Points. Oh well, live and learn. Do the Hotwire listings often leave off amenities in an attempt to disguise the property?
  14. Seems like this is almost automatic. Great value...comparable to places that cost $100+.
