ROSEMONT, Ill. (CBS) — A hotel near O’Hare International Airport is hoping to capitalize on stranded airport passengers by offering a special blizzard deal throughout the winter.
As WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, from now through March 31, anytime more than 3 inches of snow are expected, the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, at 9300 Bryn Mawr Ave. in Rosemont, says it will offer a special “blizzard rate” of $55.

The blizzard rate includes free parking, and a complementary toothbrush, toothpaste, razor and shaving cream.
When guests can finally catch their flights, the hotel says it will provide a free ride to O’Hare on its shuttle.
For reservations, the hotels says to call them at (847) 696-1234 and ask for the Hyatt Regency O’Hare blizzard rate, or go to the hotel Web site and enter the code BLIZ12 under special offers.
And not to worry – there may be snow, but there is no blizzard in the forecast. Only a winter storm warning is in effect for the Chicago area until Friday morning.
