Hyatt Regency Chicago Rating: 4.0 Pearls
The Loop, Chicago, Illinois

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Modern rooms, with 37-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docks
  • Northern Loop location right on the Chicago River, near convention centers and tourist attractions
  • Large fitness center with individual TVs and free headphones
  • Numerous on-site bars, restaurants, and cafes
  • Blackout curtains and comfy beds
  • Large business center
  • Spacious bathrooms with nice touches, like free toothpaste
  • Guests can check-in via iPads in the hotel lobby
  • Connected to the Illinois Center

Cons

  • Thin walls mean you can hear your neighbors
  • Fee for storing items in the mini-bar
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Pricey parking (but Facebook and Twitter followers receive a discount)

Bottom Line

The enormous, 2,019-room Hyatt Regency Chicago, which completed renovations to its lobby, restaurants, and meeting spaces in 2013, caters to business travelers, with its large convention center and numerous meeting rooms. But the northern Loop location — blocks from sites such as Grant Park and the Magnificent Mile — is also a draw for leisure travelers, as are the sleek, modern rooms with 37-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Note that the sheer size of the hotel will mean long waits at the elevators and escalators.
