With a prime location in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, the Hyatt Regency Chicago puts travelers in proximity to the River Walk, Millennium Park and some of the city’s best museums and shopping. Fresh off a $168 million renovation, the look is business casual, fitting as the 36-story hotel attracts lots of conventions and biz-types. Expect clean lines and a muted palette of beige and sand with pops of orange.
Bed & Bath
The 2,019 guestrooms received a face-lift adding contemporary style with earthy color schemes plus modern touches like 37-inch flat-screen plasma TVs, upgraded bath amenities and iHome docking stations. Guestrooms start at a modest 320 square feet, and many offer skyline or Lake Michigan views.
Sustainable seafood, organic produce and thoughtfully sourced beef are on the menu at Stetsons Modern Steak + Sushi. The more casual American Craft Kitchen & Bar offers comfort fare, like ahi tuna melts, meatloaf and buttermilk fried chicken along with daily blue plate specials like tuna casserole and Sloppy Joe. After dinner, head to BIG Bar for a huge selection of beer and cocktails as well as 26 flat screens to watch sporting events.
How to Get There
My mother and I flew in from Los Angeles, but our flight had been delayed, causing us to arrive much later than we had anticipated. It was close to midnight and we had yet to eat dinner. One of the Hyatt Regency Chicago's main dining options is their bar. However, food services at the bar wrap up at around 12. My mom rushed to the bar and placed our order at approximately 11:54. She returned holding a glass of expensive wine and a root beer for myself, and quickly headed off to our hotel room to drop off our bags. I was left alone for 10 minutes all by myself and it was close to midnight. Not long after my mom left, the waiter that my mom had spoken to came to me and told me that he had not gotten the order in on time and that the chefs were refusing to make the food. I was devastated and hungry and felt very upset. A woman by the name of Tosh came over to me and asked if everything was alright. I explained to her my dilemma and she promised me that she would do everything she could to help fix the problem. Sure enough, I see her speaking to many people around the restaurant. My mom came back and I explained to her what happened, and she was very upset, but soon enough, Tosh came back with the manager who promised us that our food would be prepared, free of charge, as would our drinks. I thought I might break out into tears. Tosh helped us pack up our things and get going to our room. I can't thank Tosh enough, and if anyone out there reading this happens to work for the Hyatt Regency Chicago, get Tosh a raise.
The hotel was beautiful. I really enjoyed the dining options. Especially the Living Room. It was a nice quiet spot to grab an easier bite, away from the bustle of the main bar and restaurant. Excellent housekeeping, and wonderful catering/event staff who handled the meeting spaces.
Good location; nice rooms; downtown; good shopping. Very big and full of convention folks; enjoyed the stay; all amenities are right here if one doesn't want to leave.
Great view of the river; good restaurants
The location was great walking distance to a lot of shops,restaurants, and about a 10 min drive to the conference center, depending on traffic. 4 different places to eat inside the hotel, rooms could have been cleaner as my friend found dirty socks in here room and I had dirty towels.
We spent one night here. It is a very busy hotel but the staff is very friendly and helpful. It has some restaurant options as well as a food to go option on the first floor. Parking is $69/night. It’s right on the river which is nice.
