If you’re planning on attending the auto show this year and are also looking for something special to treat your hubby or boyfriend to for Valentine’s Day, I highly recommend the Hyatt. They’ve got a special package this year which includes tickets to the Chicago Auto Show, typically $12 each. The Auto Show Package rates start at $169 including 1 ticket ($12 value), so the overall savings when booked together starts at $22 and only keeps going up the more tickets you include. The cost for regular room and 4 auto show tickets would be $227, but this package with 4 tickets is $187, a $40 savings.
Their Romance Package is pretty impressive too! Available for Valentine’s Day weekend (2/13 -2/16) which overlaps with the auto show. It includes:
- Full Breakfast for 2 (Shor Restaurant or In Room Dining)
- Welcome Amenity with Bottle of Lindaurer Sparkling Wine and Mini Chocolate Fondue with Fresh Berries, Shortbreads and Cookies
- VIP Turn Down Service
- 1 PM Late Check Out
You get all this for $160!
The Hyatt McCormick Place finished $110 million remodel June 2013 and I just can’t say enough great things about it! The staff is amazing, did you hear about my disaster with opening booze for bloggers this past summer? The concierge didn’t bat an eye when I ran downstairs with 3 bottles of expensive vodka that I couldn’t get open at 10 pm one night.
The rooms are luxury. Especially if you are as geared up on tech as I am. Any and all charging outlets that you could possibly desire. The view is stellar on a clear day you can see all the way to Navy Pier. Or if it’s not you might just end up inside of a cloud which is a different kind of beauty that may be more magical. Have you ever been inside a rain cloud before?
The parking is hassle free. Staying at the hotel and you only need your key card. There is no stress finding a space. It may be further away from the rest of downtown but if you are coming for the Auto Show then you won’t find a better hotel. The convenience of taking the elevator downstairs and eating your complimentary breakfast is undeniable. After that you can mosey on over to McCormick Place to take a gander at all the fancy cars. No need to stress about finding transportation.
The rooms are spacious. There is enough closet space that you might be able to sneak that new motorcycle into your closet. We certainly stored our lawnmower in there with ease. That’s another story entirely, but the amenities cannot be beat. If you’re looking for a hotel, then you might as well treat yourself to the Hyatt at McCormick Place.
