I don't normally feel the need to stay in upscale hotels. However, since this was Valentine's day weekend I made an exception. The Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile is a 4/5 star hotel that is very modern in décor and amenities. The style is contemporary modern and is very stylish and chic. We stayed in a standard King room. It was spacious with a very comfortable bed, large 46" flat screen TV, and nice sized bathroom. The various lighting features are really neat. The sliding "barn" door to the bathroom is cool and makes sense. I had read reviews regarding the Hospital across the street and sirens throughout the night. Our room faced the Hospital and was on the 12th floor. Yes there were sirens periodically. We are both sound sleepers and it did not bother us. The Hotel will generally try to place you away from the Hospital if you request it. The bar and restaurant are quite nice. The meals and drinks are a bit on the high side, but typical for downtown Chicago. Drinks are typically $10-14, the breakfast was $14 for continental and $22 for the buffet. We found the Corner Bakery right across the street. If offers an awesome alternative for breakfast for $7-10 each. There is also a TGI Fridays a block away for meals and drinks. The hotel does offer a Starbucks right inside the hotel which is a big hit! The hotel is a block east of Michigan Ave. Which is nice for those who wish to do some shopping. It would be nice if the WiFi was free, but again this seems typical now. You will be charged for the bottled water in the room, so be wary of that! We like to take the train into Chicago, so about a $15-18 cab ride (with tip) from Union Station. There are a few bus stops within a couple blocks. The closest L is about a 15-20 minute walk, so maybe a bit far in cold weather. The staff are very friendly and extremely accommodating! For the purpose of our trip and what we were expecting, this an excellent hotel and reasonably priced! I would and will definitely stay here again on my next trip to downtown Chicago.
