We recently stayed for four nights at the Hyatt Place South Chicago and found it to be a very good experience and much needed option in Hyde Park. The facility is new, rooms are nicely designed and beds are comfortable. We enjoyed a good variety of breakfast foods and the area was kept nicely stocked. Staff were very friendly throughout our stay. This hotel is part of the Harper development, so is close to newly opened retail and restaurants; also is across the street from a movie theater. Great place for visiting family in Hyde Park or the University of Chicago. Only downside was expensive valet parking for an area outside of the city center.

I stayed here while attending a wedding in the neighborhood. They had a great wedding rate. I liked the decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The first room they assigned me had a noisy neighbor; however, they cheerfully moved my room. The indoor pool is tiny, not for laps, but if you just want to splash around it would be fun. The quality of the breakfast was so-so. The hotel has a shuttle to neighborhood locations like the university or the Du Sable museum. The express 6 bus, 3 blocks away will take you downtown. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. The staff was helpful with advice on logistics.

Nicely decorated; however, the walls are paper thin. I could hear the television from the room next door. Breakfast is complimentary, but barely adequate when the hotel is full. Staff must work on customer service skills, this is hospitality. Location is good.

I've been trying to stay in Hyde Park for years, no go. Finally, this hotel has opened. It's perfect. Clean, comfortable and modern rooms, great breakfast bar, very reasonable rates (usually stay at the Four Seasons so a major break on the price). Remember, it's not a luxury hotel so no robes, no room service, no turndown service, no chocolate on the pillows. Didn't miss any of that.
What is best about this hotel is the staff. Everyone, from maids, desk staff and valet staff was friendly and pleasant, seemingly glad and proud to have this hotel in their neighborhood and it shows in their attitudes.
This hotel is long overdue.

Room Tip: Top floor (6) was quiet. Suites are surprisingly inexpensive and good to spread out.

This brand new hotel is the only decent hotel in Hyde Park. The entire facility is nicely decorated and furnished well. The staff is great, friendly, accommodating, etc. The 24/7 food café works well, but i still miss room-service.

I only have one significant complaint...Whoever thought of using opaque glass doors into the bathrooms in the rooms must always travel alone, or isn't disturbed by the bright light pouring the glass door into the bedroom area in the middle of the night when your traveling companion gets up to use the facility. The doors look great and fit into the decorating scheme, but are totally out of place for this purpose.

This would normally be enough to cause me to stay away from a hotel, but in this case the Hyatt Place is the only show in town worth considering.

Stayed here whilst attending a conference at McCormick Place in December 2013.
Chosen because of it's cost - £100 a night, compared to double that downtown. 2 minutes walk to the Metra Station, and a $3 15-minute ride to Millennium Park.
Friendly, smiling staff who assisted with any query. A credit to the hotel.
Room was of large-size, with massive HD TV on wall - however the "Hyatt Plug Planel" was nowhere to be seen. Small fridge was very handy. Lots if storage space for clothes, iron etc.
Comfortable bed, but didn't help allay the jetlag!
As mentioned before, water pressure not the best...but perfectly adequate.
Breakfast was abundant with a varied choice. Very relaxing communal area.
There is a Starbucks just round the corner.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled on business
