After being on the road for six hours and prepaying for a hotel that we did did not stay in it was a wonderful experience to be greeted with wonderful service from Willie.

We loved being at the Wyndham Grand. It was very cold and the bellman helped us with out bags immediately and got us inside as they parked our car. We were asked to upgrade to River view for $20 and declined the offer however when we got to our room we were looking over the river. Rooms are large, spacious... More

We were on the 26th floor right next to the stairs and near to the elevators. We had city view and we heard passing trains very loudly so falling asleep was hardened. Also the conditioner of the room was so loud even when i turned it down for low. Complimentary wifi had very bad signal and was very very very... More

We stayed at the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront for a weekend in Chicago. After checking in they directed us to the concierge desk to pick up a free gift. There were three women concierge who offered to give us free breakfast if we stayed for a presentation for their timeshare. That is NOT a free gift. The view was unbeatable... More

We usually visit Chicago a couple of times per year and always stay at the Renaissance, which we love, but we own with Wyndham and wanted to test out this property. Also, we were here for four days, so the addition of a kitchen (which the Renaissance obviously doesn't have) is always a huge bonus for me. Overall, it's a... More

This hotel has nice big rooms and a location that is excellent for shopping and sightseeing in downtown Chicago. The lobby is small but the staff is friendly and service oriented. The cleaning works well and most of the hotel has nice views. We got a room high up in the hotel and were very happy. We stayed at this... More
