Attached to McCormick Place, Chicago’s sprawling convention center, the two-tower Hyatt Regency was built to accommodate crowds without feeling overwhelming. Living-room-like conversation areas in the lobby make spacious public areas feel human-scaled beside three-story-tall window walls. A smattering of large-scale artworks, gleaming lobby tile and a central hallway accessing four restaurants en route to the convention center evoke a sense of cool efficiency.
Bed and Bath
Neutral décor takes a back seat to panoramic city views. Thoughtful ergonomic design makes the rooms remarkably residential, from foyer tables to built-in benches and Eames-style chair-and-ottoman sets. Beds are generously pillowed and amenities, unexpected in a hotel of this size, include robes and slippers. A one-cup coffee maker comes with Tazo teas as well as Arabica blends. KenetMD amenities stock the bathroom, featuring the shower and toilet in an adjoining room for privacy.
The Health Club lives up to its name with a membership-worthy array of machines, weights and mats as well as a substantial lap pool, sauna, lockers and, in season, a sun deck. Befitting a meetings hotel, the business center is a full-service FedEx Office store. The lobby level hosts four food and beverage options, including the well-stocked grab-and-go Daily Grind, casual pizza specialist Forno, steakhouse Shor and lively lounge M/X featuring local and regional beers on tap as well as a full nachos-to-steaks menu.
In the Area
Located in the growing South Loop area, the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place offers guests pedestrian access to the 18-mile lakefront recreational trail, as well as football’s Soldier Field. The Museum Campus – comprised of marquee city attractions including the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum and Adler Planetarium – is a pleasant 15-minute walk (or three-minute cab ride) away. The convention center borders the historic Prairie District, hosting a few rare vintage mansions including the 1887-built Glessner House, a granite rejection of froufrou Victorian architecture, now operating as a museum. The area’s dining scene is on the rise, led by the contemporary Acadia, as well as more casual stars including egg-cream-and-knish slinger Eleven City Diner.
How to Get There
It was closer to the college and safe environment. Convenient restaurant in the hotel. Perfect and safe place to be with family. I was there alone for a night. The view was great from my room. I am a spiritual person and looking out the full moon in the sky made me happy and relax.
Obviously very convenient to McCormick Place but plan on expensive cabs or Ubers to get up town to preferred dining or shopping. Also if you like Coke, bring your own as neither the hotel or the convention center sells it. Got to go to McDonald's to find this beverage option. Needs more dining options as the neighborhood offers limited options.
could have been better, expectations not quite there,
room options very limited
I should not have to right a book to submit a review
If my room type not available why sell me an upgrade? instead of just giving it to me?
I had to be moved twice the room was not clean, not once but twice . The 3rd rom was that great but I stayed in that because I was in a city where I didnt know anyone and didn't want to cause any problems.
I usually visit Chicago every year or two but somehow missed staying here. The hotel was reasonably priced, extremely clean and the staff was top notch. The only thing and I mean the only thing that didn't sit well with me was the taxi driver that took us from the hotel to the restaurant, he insisted that we give him our card to pay vs using the machine in the back (he said he makes more money that way). The screen in the back says clearly DO NOT GIVE YOUR INFORMATION TO ANYONE. This is in no way in relation to the hotel (they are just stationed outside of the hotel), but this is a BEWARE to the guests that may be leaving the hotel.
