In the northern part of The Loop, next to the river and within walking distance of Millennium Park
The Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront, formerly Hotel 71, is set in the northern part of The Loop, with a great location close to hundreds of dining and shopping options, and steps from the Theatre District. Many tourist attractions, like the Millennium Park and the world-class Art Institute of Chicago, are within easy walking distance. For longer distances, there are six subway lines within two blocks.
This mid-range hotel is centrally located in The Loop, on the northern edge of Chicago's Theatre District. Its 357 rooms — renovated in 2011 — are comfortable and spacious (though a tad generic for the price), and come with updated amenities, such as free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The bright fitness center with great river and city views, the casual Hoyt’s restaurant, and its wonderful location make this a great pick, but for more stylish rooms, consider the often similarly priced Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, Allegro Chicago Hotel, or Hotel Monaco.
