We were stranded in Chicago due to Hurricane Sandy and we needed a hotel near O'Hare. I didn't have time to do a proper search for hotels, I was on my phone, so I turned to Hotwire. I am guessing the room we got was the, "Oh, we will stick the Hotwire person here" room. I always find that tactic to be pretty slimy, you want the room filled, you ask Hotwire to list it and then you are going to screw with people?
First, I don't think the rugs in any spot in this hotel have been replaced since they were put down, years ago. They were just nasty. We did a bedbug check and fortunately found nothing, and I did not discover anything out of sorts the next morning. The fact that we felt it necessary to do a bed bug search tells you something.
The room had barely enough room to fit the full size bed. The television was atop what appeared to be some sort of storage unit. No quibbles about the fact the television was a good 10-15 years old. Plenty of stations to watch. Room to watch, well, my husband sat on the window sill that had a cushion on it, I sat on the bed. There was a desk, with a chair that has a few sits left on it.
Bathroom, there is a hair dryer. Use it if you have 3 strands of hair. Towels, thin, very thin. I actually used my hair dryer to dry myself. Thin, scratchy towels. All mismatched variations of white. No real water pressure. The shower head has never been cleaned.
Internet is free. Internet is not particularly fast. They do offer you a computer to print your boarding pass. The catch 15 cents per page. Really?
Favorite part, the other guest that was sparking up down the hall. We smelled a faint smell of pot when we stepped out the room at the end of the hall, as we walked down the hall it got stronger. Hmm, maybe they were on to something that would have made me overlook some things......
