I stayed at the Hyatt Regency on a recent business trip, while I was attending a conference that was going on in the hotel's convention center. The beds were comfortable, the rooms modern and nicely furnished, and the water pressure in the shower surprisingly good. There is a market downstairs that is open for literally 24 hours and offers drinks, snacks, sandwiches and salads, etc - albeit at a premium price. I decided the convenience was worth it and became a regular! The market serves Starbucks drinks and Starbucks oatmeal in the morning - a similar bowl of oatmeal in the hotel restaurant cost double the price.
My room (3128) had a PHENOMENAL view looking over the Chicago River, right at the Wrigley and Tribune buildings. Other guests I spoke with weren't so lucky - I'd try to request anything on an upper floor and in the "20's" range of room numbers.
The only complaint I have is the craziness resulting from trying to navigate around their current renovations - I was lost at least 4 times and it was a major topic of conversation at the conference. Some signage would really help out here, Hyatt - and changing your elevator signage from "blue/bronze/green" to floor numbers wouldn't be a bad idea, either. Pick up a map of the hotel at the front desk, memorize your most frequent routes, and don't try to stray from them! Once the renovations are done this complaint won't matter anymore.
The hotel is set on Wacker and Michigan, which is an ideal location - took me about ten minutes to walk to the Art Institute through Millennium Park and it wouldn't be more than a twenty or twenty-five minute walk (or cheap cab ride) to any of the major attractions in downtown Chicago.
