1. The location is very convenient: So many attractions and good restaurants are within walking distance.
2. Huge room: The double queen room is so huge. Two queen beds with a separate working space with a large sofa, a desk and a chair for work. The room is about 150% or even 200% larger than an usual double queen room. The bathroom is also huge.
1. Valet parking (which locates between this hotel and the River Hotel, serves both) costs $60 per night. And it took about 20min to retrieve your car even during off peak time. I would recommend to use the self-service surface parking lot right beside the River Hotel, which costs $34 a night. It can be tricky to find a space during peak time, but I was able to find empty space for both nights I stayed.
2. (minor) The shampoo and shower gel is bad. Not a big deal because I usually bring my own.
This hotel definitely exceeded my expectation as a 4-star hotel. I usually stay at Westin, Marriott, or Aloft in Chicago. But found a great rate for this hotel, so decided to give Wyndham a chance. And it proves to be a smart choice - this stay is better than the ones at Westin/Marriott/Aloft. Very large room, great location. You cannot ask for more.
