Excellent location. Great value (off season of course). Lobby Ok, but not impressive. Single bed room that I stayed had inadequate lighting for reading. Bathroom nice but no tab. The old wooden towel rack didn't fit the rest of the decor . standard amenities, but no bar soap. ( I hate shower gel!). Refrigerator and coffee facility was nice, although...

We booked the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront because: (a) we had recently had a nice experience in a Wyndham property in Hawaii; (b) the location (on Wacker near Michigan) and (c) the price. We were pleasantly surprised: nice welcome at the reception; extremely comfortable large room and bathroom; comfortable king bed, nice amenities in the room including two free bottles...

Stayed two nights. Lovely hotel with a great view of the river and city. Very affordable for such a central location! The staff was great and the rooms were nice and comfortable. Very easy to catch cabs right out front to get around town. I will stay here again for sure!

This is one of the best hotels in Chicago in my opinion and the rate we got for a weekend in February was fantastic. The extra cost for the river view is probably worth it, especially if its not much more. Our view was amazing. The room was a great size and the bathroom/shower were great. The location is the...

We only stayed one night and had a river view room, which was amazing! We were in a studio unit through Wyndham vacations. Apparently there are two different sections of the hotel. Are room was nice, but the bathroom sink area did have some sort of debris on it, not that big of deal. I wish there would have been...

This hotel is peaceful, the rooms are quiet and the service staff takes care of anything you ask them to. This of course means I had more time for idle thought. Hence I used my time at the Wyndham to ponder the question of my own mortality. Perhaps one day I'll just gently nod off in a bed. One could...

Came into Chicago a day early for an interview via Amtrak. The hotel was easy to get to, and as it wasn't a busy day I'm guessing, they allowed me to check in early when I was initially only trying to drop off my bags! The following day, I requested late check out (by three hours), which they also made...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
