My family and I stayed here while visiting my aunt, and it was a really nice experience. The room was in great condition-the beds were super comfortable, the bathroom was nice and clean, there was ample space to spread out, no noise from the hallways or neighbors. The breakfast was delicious and lots of good options, and it's right near... More

Stayed 1 night on a college trip to UChicago. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. We needed some supplies and the hotel provided complimentary items rightaway. The valet parking charges are steep, but it is Chicago, so you sort of know that going in, The shuttle service to the University was convenient, but it is a small shuttle. There was a... More

We were only there for one night but the experience was great. Everyone was very nice and friendly, as well as accommodating. The room was a perfect size and clean. We will definitely come back and stay here.

The hotel is fine, but if you don't need to be in that neighborhood, you might want to try the downtown Hyatt! The hotel is great for people who need to be in close proximity to UC, but the neighborhood is not fabulous in its own right.

The Hyatt Place Chicago-South/University Medical Center is conveniently located in Hyde Park near the University of Chicago and there is a free shuttle to campus. The staff are warm and friendly and breakfast is included per the usual Hyatt Place deal. Nothing extravagant or terribly elegant, but brand new, very clean, and friendly. You are far from downtown but great... More

We stayed here over a weekend in the city. Great location, close to lake and a few museums. Most important, the staff consistently went above and beyond, took care of our needs and then some. Shout out to Samuel and Maks.Thank you!!

This Hyatt location is a hidden gem tucked into the UChicago neighborhood. I almost hate to share how great the hotel is, in case it becomes harder to make reservations! Staff are wonderful, and amenities are of unexpected quality: an uncommon value for location and price.

Chose this hotel for proximity to the Museum of Science and Industry- easy walking distance. Very clean, comfortable (even the pull out sofa bed was fine for my picky one) and quiet -some outside truck noise after 6:30AM. Breakfast was pretty standard fare but plenty of choices. Pool is small but the grand kids gave it a work out. ALL... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Chicago. The staff is very friendly and take good care of your needs. The hotel is new and the rooms are spacious and clean with complementary wi-fi. Hot breakfast is served every morning but apart from that there aren't any eating options. The location is near the University of Chicago campus and... More

Dear Karan M, Thank you for your most recent review. Don't forget about the Movie Theatre and multiple restaurants to choose from that stays open a lot later than 8:30. Feel free to inquire with a Host during your next visit. We will be happy to provide numerous recommendations in the area. Regards, More

Staying in Hyde Park

Neighborhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
