Had a wonderful time. Location is very nice. Waking distance to almost everything. We walked from the train station and to Shedd's aquarium. View wasn't anything special but the room was very nice, shower amazing, bed and pillows comfortable.

Great location. View from room was spectacular; room was nicely appointed...we loved it. WiFi was barely adequate, but we didn't really care.

The location of this hotel was great! Everything is walking distance and you're right by the Chicago river. The breakfast (although this wasn't included) was delicious. If you can, try to get a room on one of the top floors, we had an amazing view of the city!

I thought the Wyndham was a decent place to stay, but I don't know that I would go back again. They have a great location on the river and most of the staff that I encountered was very friendly. We booked 2 nights to spend Thanksgiving in the city. We used hot deals from Hotwire to book, and got a... More

If you don't save to book a regular room, the one with a view will offer a real unique panorama of Chicago's best. They are not high rise and you can see lots of street live, Chicago river, tourists groups, etc. Our room was facing Trump tower, and, first day after elections, we saw some protesters and police circling the...

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.

A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
