The last night of my Chicago stay I spent at the Hyatt Regency Chicago after the AC Hotel Chicago Downtown and the Courtyard by Marriott Magnificent Mile.

The hotel is enormous – in fact it spans two 30 floor towers (connected by a Skybridge) along the mouth of the Chicago River. It’s not obvious where the hotel lobby is when you walk up to the hotel from Michigan Ave. It’s located just around the Chicago Riverwalk and Magnificent Mile.

Check-In was fast with a sole agent manning the desk. They do have about 15 check-in stations and as many self-service stations – so clearly the hotel wasn’t exactly full even though the lobby area was crowded at times.

The lobby itself is stylish and huge – lobbies used ‘to make’ hotels and the Hyatt Regency certainly adheres to that policy. You are also warm and out of the freezing wind which waits for you outside.

I liked my ‘upgraded room’ though I wasn’t sure what the upgrade was. The view out to Lake Michigan was fantastic.

The room was somehow badly separated with the desk behind the bed. It certainly felt luxurious though – not cheap.

The bathroom was big, functional and clean.

The Internet had a lot of bandwidth but slow ping times. So big downloads would finish fast but loading a website would take much longer than it should be.

It’s amazing how affordable the hotel gets during the low season – most days it’s available for under $99.

I can’t find much to complain about – the price was right, the service welcoming, the room luxurious and the location perfect for exploring Chicago downtown.

You can book the Hyatt Regency Chicago here.
