“Really enjoyed my stay at the Hyatt Place River North”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

I stayed at the Hyatt Place River North for work purposes recently and was really happy with my stay at the hotel and would highly recommend this property. Rooms are much larger than your traditional Chicago guest room, furnished in a modern and clean style and very comfortable. There is a very busy fire station across the street from the hotel, and as such, I asked for a quiet room on a high floor - if you are concerned about possible noise, I'd suggest doing the same, but recognize that you might then have a room without a view. My room looked out onto another building, but was absolutely silent, which was perfect for me, especially as I was staying at the hotel for business and really just for sleeping!

As others have noted, the breakfast each morning is fantastic - a great selection of items, from fruit & cereals to tasty breakfast sandwiches, and I thought this was a great differentiator for the Hyatt Place, and something that many other "standard" hotels do not provide.

The location of the hotel is also terrific with a lot going on in the popular River North area, so I'd highly recommend this property for both business & leisure travellers.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room without a view, ask for one that faces away from the street - mine was pret...

Very attentive and personable staff, in a great city location with proximity to many great restaurants. Hotel is very new, with large spaces, aery, and plenty of light. The menu although not extensive offers enough variety to satisfy a happy hour snack. Wonderful warm chocolate cookie. Very tasty free breakfast for a limited service property. Better than some full service properties. Will stay there again as well as return to this flag

I stayed at the Hyatt Place for three nights in what was my first ever trip to Chicago, and I would definitely return here. It's a really nice property smack dab in the centre of the city, and it's tremendous value for your money. The room and other facilities were immaculately clean and well appointed, and the complimentary breakfast was quite good - a refreshing departure from the sad excuses for free "breakfasts" offered at many hotels. The arty decor in the rooms and elsewhere is appealing, and the staff were wonderful. My only complaint was the fire station across the street, but there's not a whole lot anyone can do about that. All in all it was stellar and I look forward to coming back!

Very nice hotel. My wife and I stayed there for our anniversary. The people were generally very nice and the place was clean. It is centrally located. The only issue is the fire station across the street.

We needed a place to stay near the theatre district and wanted access to good restaurants without having to pay an arm and a leg for a hotel room. The Hyatt Place was very affordable (took advantage of their Best Rate Guarantee), even though parking still costs a bit (it does no matter where you stay in Chicago!). We weren't looking for a super luxurious room/amenities, so the clean and comfortable room was spot on. We've stayed at other hotels that offer a free breakfast and have always been disappointed; however, Hyatt Place had a nice variety and it wasn't overcrowded when we went down at 9:30 am to eat.

The entire staff was extremely attentive from the moment we arrived. They definitely went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The hotel was very well appointed, and our 14th floor room was clean, quiet and even included a nice view of the city. Breakfast in the morning was a nice perk. Nothing extravagant, but the food quality was good and the buffet included decent variety. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at Hyatt Place in other cities and enjoyed the modern decor and room layout. The Chicago property has all of that and more. The staff are extremely welcoming and have a great sense of humor (loved Kevin at from desk). The breakfast area serves as a bar with some food options during the day. The room was very clean and spacious for downtown standards. Breakfast was plentiful and kept refreshed in the morning. We enjoyed a great stay and will return soon!

Room Tip: Near a busy fire station, but we didn't hear the noise. They provide earplugs in the room, which...
