“Fantastic Hotel, Fantastic Staff!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

My friends and I came down from Detroit for a 1 day Bday Celebration on the worst Snow weekend of the year and we had a ball. Despite the Horrible Amtrak Station and Horrible MegaBuses we had an absolute FANTASTIC time at the Hyatt Place. Everything was close, the beds were comfy and the staff were hands down the best and what I needed after the horrible bus trip. I wish I knew their names but the concierge was awesome he works mornings. Everytime we saw him he had us laughing and made us feel at home. The bartender who worked Saturday night was AMAZING!!! She gets to know her customers and she said some important things to me that I'll hold dear with me forever. Keep the Southern Hospitality in North Chicago. My group plans to return in the Spring and host a conference and the Hyatt Place will definitely be getting a call from us. Thank you so much!! Rock on Hyatt Staff!

Room Tip: Higher levels are the best!

Happy Birthday Ms. Jay G!

It's great to hear that the warmth and hospitality of our Gallery Hosts were a welcome contrast to the cold of the snow storm that hit during your brithday celebration. We look forward to having you return in the spring so you can see Chicago in bloom. Thanks for allowing us to make your stay a fantastic one.

Hyatt Place is in a very convenient location. Close to the CTA El, easy to access from the expressway and also walkable to many Chicago major attractions. Very clean and friendly staff. Rooms are nicely appointed. Very comfortable bed and low noise level

Greetings David,

One of the best things about our hotel - other than the comfortable beds and well appointed rooms - is the accessibilty to everything great Chicago has to offer. You really don't need a car to see the majority of attractions, and Chicago's public transit system is efficient, inexpensive and easy to use. We know it's hard to see everything in one visit, so we hope you will join us again to continue the tour.

Safe Travels,

Josh Schreib

Hotel provided complimentary bottle of wine and dessert for my friend when I mentioned it was her birthday. Doorman gave free passes to local club which was nearby. Parking was very expensive though. You can find cheaper parking at garages nearby.

We are glad that your friend had a fun birthday! We enjoy helping to make the occasion special, and I hope you enjoyed the nightclub. While there are cheaper parking options, our garage is the closest proximity to the hotel, as well as a covered and secured building. Our location makes it very easy to avoid renting a car with access to Chicago's local transit system. Thank you for your feedback and review.

Kind Regards,

Great price, booked direct through Hyatt.com. Excellent location, a few block from the Red Line some getting here from MDW was really easy. The hotel is in the middle of all the action in the River North. We stayed here for our visit to EATALY. The hotel staff was great, everyone we came in contact with were pleasant and helpful. We had a two queen room, it was large and spacious. The room was clean and well appointed. The best bargain in Chicago. Would not hesitate to return. Keep up the great work!

You get great value for the price of the hotel. The complimentary breakfast in the morning has a wide variety of food including fruit, eggs, sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, and oatmeal. Hyatt Place/River North is located right in the heart of River North.

Thank you for sharing your review with other trip advisor travelers. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why we make sure our AM Skillet is stocked with a delcious spread and ready to go first thing in the morning. We hope this will be your first of many visits to Hyatt Place Chicago River North.

The staff was very attentive and friendly at all times. We even received a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates upon arrival for our anniversary. Along with an upgrade to a room with a nice view. The room was pristine and well kept. Loved having a separate sitting area from the bed. All very clean & modern accommodations. Wireless internet that you only have to sign into 1 time per day! TV has all the connections needed to connect any device. The location and price could also not be beat. You are right in the middle of shopping and so many fabulous restaurants. This place blows away other fancy high priced hotels. I felt like I was at a 5 star establishment. Extremely pleased with our stay at Hyatt Place and I will be planning to stay here for all future Chicago visits.

I had a very good experience while staying at this property. It is located right in the heart of everything. Close to great restaurants and nightlife. The rooms were also large and spacious and very clean. Checking in was very dry quick and pleasant.
The staff at the hotel was very very helpful anytime I needed any assistance. Check out was also very good. My only issue was with self parking. It was two blocks away and it seems very very far.. Hotel should offer more reasonable parking at a closer location.

Dear Yardie,

We are delighted that you had a great experience staying with us. We understand that the proximity of the garage isn't ideal, but in an area dense with restaurants, bars, lounges and shopping, our parking garage is actually one of the closest to the action and hotel. We do appreciate the feedback, and thank you for taking the time to share your impressions.
