A/C in room is not adjustable......rooms were too hot! Cancelled room reservation after we didn't show due to the fact that our southwest flight was cancelled. Normally I would understand but my husband called once our flight was cancelled to make sure the hotel was aware. They told us there wouldn't be a problem with our room. We arrived today... More

The size of the Presidential Suite (3804) was unbelievable. The living room in itself is probably larger than an entire 1-bedroom Chicago apartment. The views of the river and skyline are breathtaking and the service was impeccable. I stayed here for 2 nights for my wedding weekend at the same property and couldn't have been happier! I highly recommend this... More

Location, staff was friendly and room was great. Just liked the other reviewers said. Totally agree We transferred our timeshare to this location and glad we did. The main knock on this hotel is the push for us to attend one of the seminars. Despite saying no several times, we were still called at 8am each morning to 'confirm our... More

You can't beat the central location! The rooms are nice, clean and big. They say there is a kitchen but a coffee machine and refrigerator do not make a kitchen. Bed is comfortable but squeaks. The shower leaked under the door to the bathroom floor. I tried to explain this to the front desk but she looked at me like... More

Spent 5 nights at the Wyndham as a timeshare guest. I guess this property doubles as both a timeshare and hotel. Our room was unit 709. This was at the end of the hall with a nice view of the river. It was a 1 bedroom unit with a bedroom, bath, living/dining room, and kitchenette. There was a stove top... More

We were in town for a special event at the hotel. The staff was very accommodating from front desk to housekeeping. The river view was interesting night and day. The only criticism is there is no newsstand in the hotel. Had to go out for papers and snacks. Our first room was next to the elevator and was very noisy.... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
