My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a Science Fiction con, so once again my review may be slanted towards those specific needs. As opposed to the last Ryatt Regency we stayed at in Kansas City, MO, this one is a definite step up in many ways - there's free parking readily available, the hotel is newer, and Woodfield Mall (a major shopping mall) is quite literally across the street - so there's plenty of food and shopping options within walking distance for those who don't want overpriced hotel food (including Portillo's, a landmark fast food restaurant).
However, rooms are on the small side, and the full-sized bed my wife and I slept in seemed tiny compared to what we're used to for that size. (My wife often uses the second bed in a two full-sized bed room for packing and unpacking.) More importantly, this hotel doesn't have *any* free wifi any place in the hotel - even the common areas like the lobby and meeting rooms use Hyatt's overpriced $9.95/night wireless, which seems unconscionable to me. Finally, when I called requesting late checkout because my wife had an event she needed to attend, I was told they didn't *have* late checkout!
I know Hyatt Regency hotels are considered "ritzier" than many of the hotels I'm used to staying in - if that means "paying for overpriced everything", I suspect I'll be staying at Holiday Inns whenever possible from here on in.....
