The hotel is nice but because of the location parking is expensive. I was there for a week for residency for school. I end up paying $140 for parking for the entire stay which was cheaper than $43-$53 a day (price depends on where you parked and if you use your hotel valet service which was a daily ...
the available snacks and coffee were a nice touch. Orbitz should note clearly that vehicle parking in the area is VERY limited and hotel parking costs $53 per night. We drove to Chicago and this added $100+ to our 2 night stay. We paid this, but had we known we might have selected another ...
I was so pleasantly surprised! I booked literally the night before on New Years weekend and was able to get a room and I was able to check in five hours early! I also was allowed to leave my bags with the front desk after check out for seven hours. The view was amazing! The room was so clean, the ...
Nice hotel offering good value for the money. Room very comfortable, only issue was sink slow to drain. Good location and easy to walk to restaurants and shops. There is construction near the hotel but it did not disturb me.
I was extremely pleased with the location of the hotel, it’s unnerving going to a place you’re not familiar with and trying to figure out how to make it back to the airport. I was able to walk to the airport with peace of mind. Thank you!
You cannot go wrong with this hotel. Price is great, parking is cheapest at 25 per day, staff is very nice and professional, location is perfect walking distance from most everything. Our favorite hotel for sure

Much nicer and less expensive than some airbnbs we have used in the area. Positives: Convenient to local family, Lobby, hallways and room were all clean and fresh. Beds were clean and comfortable. Negatives: Room lock didn't work requiring new batteries, which was fixed promptly. Tried to use Business Center for airline check-in and print boarding passes but the printer had no extra paper and didn't work; asked Sunday morning receptionist to resolve and she responded rudely that she was the only person on duty, didn't come to resolve the issue. Pole light in room was broken. Requires a deposit upon check-in.
I chose the Hyatt because of 4 things. 1. The rate was a great value. 2. Considering the amount other hotels were charging for the parking, the combined price of the room and parking made the price a bargain. 3. This is a 4 star hotel and the quality of the room was excellent. 4. The hotel is attached to the convention center and the convenience of not having to drive to the auto show was very relaxing. The hotel put a notice under the door the evening before check out that there was a large number of check outs the next morning and to please observe the 12:00 check out time and use online or in room check out if possible. Bit, they let you know on this notice to hold onto your room key and if parked in the garage, you could remain parked there at no additional charge until 8:00pm. This worked out great for me as I didn't have to worry about moving my car until I left Chicago to head home. Excellent stay.
I was so pleasantly surprised! I booked literally the night before on New Years weekend and was able to get a room and I was able to check in five hours early! I also was allowed to leave my bags with the front desk after check out for seven hours. The view was amazing! The room was so clean, the staff was so nice and accommodating! I exclusively use their hotels now! Love them
