“Tiny "Cells" for Priceline/Hotwire Rates”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2009

On a stopover/break in a long trip, I used Priceline to deal me out a hotel at Chicago O'Hare. I was given the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. As a Platinum-level traveler with Hyatt I was surprised to get the room pictured here.

Check-in (on a Sunday) was slow and I opted for the automated check-in. I found the third one working, and was given a room with odd instructions to find it. This was the first warning bell - basically, the room could only be accessed by going out the parking garage exit, and up a flight of stairs (no elevator, not cool with lots of luggage).

There are maybe 10 rooms in this "annex", all looking to be pie shaped, and I felt like I was at a business hotel in Japan.

This is about the smallest hotel (not motel) room I've ever had in the US. Oddly shaped, facing the airport (noisy but I sleep thru anything), and only a shower in the bath.

Apparently during the last renovation Hyatt figured out a way to get Priceline customers and "punish" them for their use of this service at the same time. Hyatt should be ashamed to put their name on such accommodation.

Save your money. This is not a 4 star hotel. I've stayed here a couple of times now (unfortunately), and this is not a good place to stay. You can get this place real cheap on priceline.com... it's not worth it.

Ive stayed at this hotel many times over the last 10 years but this was the first since the major renovations.

PROS:

Nicely done renovations. Lobby and rooms are top notch.
Beds are excellent as are pillows and drapes (dark).
Room furniture is nice.
37" LCD TV


CONS:

Check in was a joke. Front desk staff had no idea what they were doing.
Hookers roaming the lobby and hotel several times during my stay.
Vent from hall to room lets in light and noise. I could hear everything.
Only the bar was open for dinner during the week. Restaurant was closed, apparently.
Expensive parking

When I travel the beds and pillows are most important to me. If I can't get a good nights sleep it is not worth being away from home. The beds here are top notch. I would sty again in a heartbeat. Good job Hyatt. Put extra $$ into your beds & pillows. Easy to get to from the Blue Line also.

The MOST EXCEPTIONAL hotel staff in all of my travels (over all the years and all the country). POLITE, HELPFUL, FRIENDLY, FUN, COURTEOUS, you name it. This staff, all of them, from valet, to bell boy, to front desk, to room service, to restaurant, to security, to management, to cleaning crew, and every single person wearing a Hyatt uniform - this is the world's BEST HOTEL STAFF ANYWHERE!! I can't even begin to describe how pleasant and helpful they are - perfect comes to mind. On a scale of 1-10, they get about 1000000.

The rooms are all remodeled (like the hotel a few years back) and are spectacular. The value is exactly the price it should be for the location. Very clean hotel - everywhere.

Just a FANTASTIC experience from the moment I got to the parking garage until the moment I left. Not a single issue or problem at any point.

The thing I remember most - THE STAFF - phenomenal!

If you are ever in the O'Hare area - this IS THE PLACE TO STAY!!!!

(though, I still miss the pool)

I've stayed here for a week two times on a business trip. It's really a very nice place. I was put in the tower both times. Rooms are modernized. Seems to always be under construction. Beautiful architecture. Nice staff. There are two bars in the lobby and a restaurant which is pricey but good- breakfast being the best! Nice night life right in hotel and in walking proximity to attractions. Great for large business conventions. I look forward to staying there again come next winter.

Wow, what a change from the Hyatt O'Hare of years past. From the front door to the new public space it is a welcomed renovation. The guest rooms are also renovated - at least in the "executive wing" where I stayed. I liked the new look in the rooms, but some of the furniture isn't as functional as it is funky, but the beds are comfortable and everything is fresh. The Red Bar is a great hang out and the bar food is tasty. One part of the hotel I really like is the coffee/sundry shop. You can get everything you need for any length of stay. I also like the shuttle service from ORD to the hotel. OK - with the Hilton you can walk from the airport which is great, but the Hyatt shuttle runs frequently and there are a lot more restaurant options then staying at the Hyatt if your trip is longer than a single night. If you want to get away from the Hyatt for dinner (although eating at the hotel's O'H Restaurant is surprisingly good) there are tons of restaurants around - Mortons, Gibsons, Carlucci's...but my favorite is an Italian spot called Cafe Zalute. Very low key/informal but perfect place to escape from hotel life and prices are very reasonable. No car, no problem. Ask the Hyatt O'Hare shuttle to take you to the Hyatt Rosemont as Zalute is right behind that hotel. The Hyatt O'Hare is a very comfortable place to stay when doing business in the O'Hare airport area and the staff is really friendly.
