Wonderful hotel

This hotel had some renovations going on outside, but inside it was beautiful. We had a river facing 2 queen bed room. It was spacious and the bathroom was amazing! A tub & a rainfall shower. GREAT value for the money!

This was our first time in Chicago. The hotel was in an excellent location, close to everything. We used the double decker trolley which worked great! Hop on or off in all the perfect locations without using a taxi. The L was a block away! Will definitely use that from the airport next time, $2.25 sure beats the $40 cab ride!

Great view!!

Went to watch the Chicago Marathon. Our room faced the starting line....it was amazing! The room was clean but I was surprised it didn't have a hair dryer or make-up mirror in the bathroom. Overall, it clean and comfy with an amazing view!

Brilliant for the perfect city getaway!

Excellent experience at the Wyndham Grand Riverfront...stayed here for 5 days and although there is renovations going on it didn't affect our stay at all. HUGE room with 2 queen beds and a sofa too made our hotel experience very comfortable! The location is excellent too...just steps away from Michigan Avenue and all the sights are within a decent walking distance! Would definitely stay here again if we return to Chicago! Staff very friendly too! 10/10 from us!
