Hyatt Regency Chicago Review

A massive, light-filled lobby—part of a $168 million renovation—is the centerpiece of the Hyatt Regency Chicago, the city's largest hotel with 2,018 rooms in a prime downtown locale. Perched between the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, Millennium Park, and Michigan Avenue, the spot is perfect for business or leisure travelers. Technology updates offer computer screens for self check-in and checkout. Renovated rooms are modern and minimalist with crisp white linens. Stetsons, where sushi is as popular as steak, is definitely a cut above most hotel restaurants.

    Hyatt Regency Chicago Review

    Had to stay here for a conference. Will never stay again
    Service and housekeeping horrible. Had to call for clean towels and toiletries. Thought Hyatt was a reputable chain.. obviously not!

    Never again

    I stayed here recently for a meeting and almost immediately remembered that this is the Hyatt that has always made me think that Hyatt is overrated as a chain. The hotel is a large convention hotel, so set your expectations accordingly- service is NOT personal, though they are reasonably helpful.
    Rooms are, in short, terrible. They are VERY dark with virtually no soundproofing, and only two drawers in the room for storage of clothing or other items.
    Chicago has many better hotels. Choose one of them- any of them.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
