Bachelorette party

Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Room was very clean and the view was amazing. Only complaint is that is was a very humid day in the city of Chicago and the air was not on high enough. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to others.

Romantic Weekend Getaway

My girlfriend and myself were beyond satisfied with the staff of the Wyndham and management. While we were there the front desk agents helped charge our phones numerous times since I had forgotten them at home. We also met Anthony Visone, one of the hotel managers, and we were speaking about our room and how much we liked it and during our conversation, I explained it was our anniversary. After our dinner, we returned to the room and there was a hand written letter from Anthony and the staff, a bottle of Champagne and a platter of goodies. The front desk staff and management went above and beyond to make us feel special, even thought it was a busy weekend with the Taste of Chicago and their hotel was booked solid. We are nobody important and they made us feel like we were their main priority. We will definitely be going back! Also, location of this hotel seems to be located by everything we wanted to do..i.e. - Shop on Michigan Ave, the Bean, FOOD & Bars. Thank you Anthony Visone and staff and Wyndham Hotel!

Taste of Chicago

Upon arriving in Chicago our excitement was really high. Made it to the hotel with no problems. The room was very spacious and clean. Once we tried to lower the A/C that was the first issue. Air that was blowing was cool but not COLD. Called the front desk to report it and a maintenace guy was upstairs in about 15 minutes. He cleaned the air filte and let us know that there was no thermostat to control the AC it was either high or low. This was a let down. After the initial nights sleep, we kinda got used to the temperature, bummer. Housekeeping seemed to do a fine job. As you know it was a busy weekend in town, the concerige folks seemed impatient when asking for directions and simple stuff like restaraunts. All in all we did enjoy our time in Chicago, but may think twice before booking at Wyndam again.

Older building, but nice rooms.

Nice hotel. Various aspects of the building infrastructure are somewhat dated, but the room was nice with a great view (even on the "City side"). Overall, nice stay.

Noisy in the windy city

This hotel is located perfectly in the river and close to fabulous shopping. The rooms are large and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Downfall is we got no sleep all weekend due to all the noise in the halls - people partying, elevator close to rooms and the very loud constant foor slamming. Multiple calls to the desk resulted in security quickly coming to talk to the offending parties however they never solved the issue. When asked how our stay was we relayed same and the manager offered to take care of us if we came back - what about taking care of your customer this round? Disappointed.
