Chicago - Day use hotels near O'Hare (ORD) ?
Jul 23, 11, 11:31 am
I know that the Hilton ORD hotel offers day use rooms to accomodate flyers with a long layover.
With all the hotels near the airport, I was wondering if others offered the same type of service?

Virtually all do - even if they don't publish a rate. This is one where calling the front desk (not 800 reservations line) is worth it. When they quote you a rate ask if it's really the best they can do. Remember, you can always call back & book. When these places are underbooked, you can find fire sale prices.

Didn't know that the ORD airports were so flexible/hungry.
Wonder if this is an unexploited niche for a monetized booking site.
Zipcar model for connecting passengers at international gateways.

Not unexploited! Our upcoming website, DayGuest.com, dedicated to day use, is getting into the market, big time!
As we are in the process of forming partnerships with hotels, we welcome any and all feedback we can get to better tailor our offering.
Have you ever booked a day use rooms? What was convenient or inconvenient about it?
Which price would you be willing to pay for the privilege?
Would you be interested in day use in urban areas as well, and not only nearby airports?
Again, any and all feedback and suggestions are much appreciated, thanks :=)
