4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We visited Chicago for the first time and luckily picked this hotel for our family. It was a perfect location for everything we needed - tourist stops, shopping, groceries, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this hotel and if possible, choose a riverfront view! The parking is very expensive here though, if possible look for a nearby lot.

Room Tip: Riverfront rooms have an amazing view.

For a short overnight stay or an extended visit the Wyndam Grand Hotel meets your needs. It is centrally located to the theater district and shopping. It has a very quaint restaurant for any meal of the day. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. I'd book a room again for my next visit.

Stayed 5 nights at the hotel for leisure and we were very impressed by the central location ( 2 minutes walk to the loop and the Near North), great views of the river. Room was large with a great 'his and hers' bathroom suite and comfortable beds. We really couldn't fault the hotel for facilities vs the price which is why we chose it. We had drinks and snacks at the hotel bar, which didn't really feel like a typical hotel bar as it was quite busy and bustling with passers by. Only slight complaint is that the bottles water in the room wasn't replaced after day one but that wasn't a big deal. Highly recommend this hotel for a good value leisure option in the heart of the city

First of all, location location location. This hotel is ideally situated for a first timer in Chicago (a returning visiter will know what they have come for and wand to be near). For us, all the downtown attractions were within easy walking distance. Second, the room. This was larger than average for a city centre hotel. If you are on a high floor the views are good (we were on the 36th). All the amenities were as expected and worked seamlessly. The staff were helpful when approached and not 'in your face' when not. It is a busy hotel, so while the service is not personal it is generally efficient. If you are visiting Chicago and want a well located base that is comfortable to come back to then you could do a lot worse than the Wyndham.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are quieter and have good views (on higher floors) without the supplement for river vie...
