We had a wonderful room on the 31st floor with a view of the river. The room was nicely appointed, clean and large. Loved the large bathroom. All staff were polite and helpful. The location is perfect. We walked to great restaurants and shopping. I plan to return and this is a great starting point for seeing the city.

First of all, we enjoy to stay at Wyndham Grand due to its location and, moreover, the river view, at night, from its high floor apartments. Made the reservation directly with the hotel site. As we checked in, the receptionist Arron was so gentle and amicable. I asked for a high floor and he gave us an immediate upgrade to...

We got a complementary room upgrade with a fantastic view of the Chicago ariver and skyline. The only complaint we had was the ridiculous cost of hotel parking. On our own we cut that price in half by driving 5 blocks away to park.

Location, location, location! Less than a block off Michigan Ave at an affordable price. We walked to Willis Tower, Millenium Park and Navy Pier. Close to everything downtown. Hotel was nice, nothing fancy but clean and the staff was friendly. Parking was $65 per day but valet makes it easy to drop your car and get it when you leave....

My wife and I craved to see Hamilton. When the tickets went for sale I was able to go through the automated line and got front row seats. That surprise me because I first tried to go online but it kept freezing up. Since those tickets weren't cheap I had to cut cost. I used points from my rewards card...

I recently stayed at the Wyndham Grand for a business trip. The conference was actually at the Hyatt but that was sold out so ended up at the Wyndham.
