I have not been at a Wyndam property for some time. Check in was efficient. I had a room beside the elevator and was concerned about noise. Surprisingly this was not a problem. The view from the room was outstanding. I went to the fitness center and the view helped to pass the time

This property is both a Wyndham hotel and a timeshare Wyndham Resort. We used our points for this stay. Had a 1-bedroom corner room on the 21st floor overlooking the Chicago River. Large unit with a mini-kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave). Check-in was fast and efficient. All employees that we met were friendly and helpful.
