So You're Stuck in the Chicago Snow and Needing a Hotel?

January 12, 2012 at 5:01 PM | by | ()

So you're stuck in Chicago today, hm? Or perhaps stuck trying to get to Chicago. The Windy City is currently the snowy city, with conditions canceling flights across the board. Indeed, Southwest Airlines has nixed all of their flights from Chicago-Midway for the day.

This is your seasonal reminder to beef up your trip booking apps to take advantage of last-minute deals and most likely save you from sleeping on the cold, tiled floor of a strange airport.

Three apps we recommend you have updated and on deck:
· Kayak (Blackberry, Android and Apple)
· Jetsetter (Apple)
· HotelTonight (Android and Apple)

Those rates you see listed above are direct from HotelTonight, for Chicago-area stays TONIGHT. Jump on that Hotel Felix one; we've done it, we approve and here's the proof. Safe travels!

Jetsetter day of?

Does Jetsetter allow you to do bookings the day of? I tried for Miami for the following day and it actually only would let me do 2 days out.

Don't forget Priceline's app

Priceline has a program like this too, called Tonight Only.  They are same-day deals in big cities on the mobile app - really good deals!


I have not tried Tonight Only. Will have to check that one out. Thanks!
