Bottom line: One of the better hotels to stay at for comfort and service, with Michigan Ave location that simply can't be beat, BUT the price is out of sight unless luxury prices are your range. The bar and restaurant at the top are excellent meeting points for drinks and/or business.
I stayed at the Park Hyatt when Hurricane Sandy canceled my flight back to the East Coast, and had to scramble for a Michigan Ave hotel. Only the Park Hyatt had a room available at short notice, but I paid full fare (in excess of $400) for a suite. This is absolutely one of the best suites I've *ever* stayed in, but I could not justify the price in the end. If you stay here, try getting a deal through an online service, but even then it's going to be pricey.
Service is superb - reception, concierge and baggage are all responsive, helpful and prompt. The room was large and very modern with a comfortable bed and a thoroughly luxurious bath sporting a jacuzzi tub and two(!) mini tv monitors in addition to the giant flat screen in the main room. Separate shower and toilet. The closet was more like an old school valet trunk; I haven't seen the sheer number of men's and women's grooming and clothing accoutrements in any hotel outside of a Gulf five star. I half expected Jeeves the Butler to leap from a side door.
The top of the hotel sports a cool bar/restaurant with free wifi that is worth knowing even if you don't stay at the Park Hyatt. The bar serves up a good cocktail and great appetizer-type foods and sandwiches. A little pricey, but worth the indulgence for a business meeting or perhaps meeting friends for a drink/date before moving on. There's a great wall-line window that shows Michigan Ave (nice in the evening). It's on the same floor as the (unbelievably well-appointed) spa. The restaurant is equally comfortable and a little pricey (to be expected). Food is sort of an international fusion, and I found it quite tasty.
At the end of the day, I just couldn't justify the price outside of the emergency I had. If you're the type of person who is willing to pay luxury prices for the privilege of retiring to a place that sports such amenities, then this is your place. Me, I think Park Hyatt's a great hotel, but if I go back it will be because I found a steep discount.
