The staff was SUPER helpful. Anthony, the concierge, had a lot of great information and put up with a million questions. Great location and great view. I checked out the fitness center and it is very nice with a great view too! I can't comment on the weekday noise, but as far as the weekend goes the scaffolding in the front wasn't a problem at all and there wasn't any noise on the 28th floor. Great stay.

Room Tip: I had a newly renovated room on the 28th floor with a river view. Perfect!

Got a good rate through Expedia and had a very good stay. Location is great. In the Loop so close to transit, Millenium park, river front, Michigan Ave etc

We did not use the restautant but there is a great breakfast spot 2 doors down

Found the room very spacious, great beathroom, very clean, quiet, comfortable - nothing bad to say at all.

Hightly recommended

I stayed on the 37th floor last week - outstanding view. The building is very centrally located to almost everything downtown. Easy walking distance to Randolph Street theatres, Millenium Park, Riverfront restaurants. The room was very spacious, reminded me of a condo. Modern look and feel, very clean and comfortable. We loved it. The building is under some pretty hefty construction right now - most notable on the exterior. It did not impact our stay at all.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room that faces the river front - would be a better view.

The Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront is in a great place, not far from the Magnificent Mile, it is in the middle of the action in Chicago. It is still undergoing rehabilitation, so scaffolding and weekday noise keeps me from giving it an excellent rating. But, I expect that I will do so when I return. The lobby is nice, the rooms clearly recently done, and all gives the impression that it will be first rate when it is finished. The restaurant and bar off the lobby, Hoyt's is worth a visit.

Room Tip: I don't know that the up charge for a better view would be worth it; there are big buildings all...

Reviewed 12 November 2013

We stayed at this hotel over the long weekend in November 2013.

While we did not have a riverfront room we still had a great, typical view of downtown Chicago.

The location is superb in terms of access to transportation links and for walking in the downtown core.

The front desk service was excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They did warn us about the ongoing construction but as we were on the 32nd floor, we didn't hear it at all. We found the room to be well-kept, a good size and clean.

There were a few minor improvements we would suggest:

Add a mirror to the room itself, instead of only in the bathroom.
Add shelving and a light over the coffee area, and supply wineglasses and ceramic coffee mugs instead of the paper cups. This would be more in keeping with the desire to be 'green'.
An option for a dim light on in the bathroom only, instead of the full bright light would be nice.
Also, the tub./shower combination should be updated with safety/grab bars.

We do want to give a particular shout out in thanks to the cook/chef at Hoyt's who insisted on reheating our pizza (purchased elsewhere!) in the oven, rather than in the microwave, and presenting it nicely on a plate. Very much appreciated!
