Priceline SCAM, Bait & Switch – After submitting a Priceline bid over $250 for a 4 star hotel the Priceline systems responded with message for a one time opportunity to bid $348 which I did and got a room at the Hotel Felix Chicago, 111 West Huron Street, Chicago, IL 60654. There is no way this hotel and room was a 4 star. I am extremely disappointed and feel that Priceline took advantage of me on this purchase. The room I stayed in was exceedingly small; the closet was a small cubby hole with a curtain rather than a door and a bar that came straight out for hanging clothes so the only visible item on a hanger was the first one. The bathroom was exceedingly small no counter, a shower that was like that in a high school locker room. There was almost no desk space for working and no chair for relaxing.
Looks to me like Hotel Felix has regular rooms and separate one for Priceline...
The room I was not at all like how the Hotel Felix describes rooms on their website: “We offer three exceptional and unique types of room accommodations designed to provide the ultimate escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. All of our downtown accommodations are equipped with plush furnishings, contemporary flair and upscale amenities. If you have work to do, efficient workstations with comfortable seating provide the productive solace you need.”
I rate this as horrible because it was a bait & switch for $348. The Room was not even up the standards of Rd Roof Inn.
