“Fabulous spot”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We are so pleased with this place. Location was fab. Got a room upgrade which was a treat. Excellent staff. Had a view of the river and Trump tower. Right at the start of the magnificent mile. I don't know if there is a better location downtown. It was so great.

Room Tip: river view is great, otherwise you have a view of other buildings backsides.

We stayed here 4 nights recently. We loved: the large windows (a full wall of windows!), extremely comfortable bed and bedding, large room, very clean, great location, easy to walk to almost anything you'd need, refrigerator promptly provided upon request, reliable fast free wifi. Neutral: slow elevators, no fan in the bathroom, could hear quite a bit of noise in the hallways and other rooms (was not an issue at all T-Th, but we noticed it on the busier Friday night), small lobby, no where to "hang out" in the hotel outside of the room. Overall: We'd definitely stay here again if we found it for a bargain price as we did this time!

Room Tip: We were offered a lower floor or the 34th. So glad we took the 34th! Our room was directly across...

The Wyndham Grand River Chicago... Was fantastic! Perfect location, very nice rooms... Some with river views (pay the extra $20/night... You cheap skate). Close to shopping, parks, museums, etc... And close to the RedLine to get you to a Cubs game. My wife and I came to Chicago to spend some one on one time away from the kids and we loved this hotel!

Large rooms. Looks like the seventies, but very clean and well set. We were on a high floor on the river side, so the view was great. Elevators were out of order during our stay, but this was off set by very responsive staff. Doormen however are not really welcoming. Will definitely return!

The Grand Riverfront is a newly renovated hotel that overlooks the Chicago river and is a block from the Magnificant Mile. The decor is fresh and upscale, the rooms a decent size for a big city hotel. We had a one bedroom unit, it was spacious and comfortable. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, in a hotel. Staff were responsive and helpful. Everything is within walking distance or a subway ride away so you don't need a car. It is $60 a night for parking. The downfall? Very persistent timeshare sales staff.

Room Tip: If you can, get a riverfront view. The view is amazing.
