First of all, location location location. This hotel is ideally situated for a first timer in Chicago (a returning visiter will know what they have come for and wand to be near). For us, all the downtown attractions were within easy walking distance. Second, the room. This was larger than average for a city centre hotel. If you are on a high floor the views are good (we were on the 36th). All the amenities were as expected and worked seamlessly. The staff were helpful when approached and not 'in your face' when not. It is a busy hotel, so while the service is not personal it is generally efficient. If you are visiting Chicago and want a well located base that is comfortable to come back to then you could do a lot worse than the Wyndham.
