Great views and location disappointing service

Joan the Concierge was fantastic in helping us plan and giving us an upgrade. Porters were great. Staff assistance is inconsistent. We had a fantastic view

Brilliant for the perfect city getaway!

Excellent experience at the Wyndham Grand Riverfront...stayed here for 5 days and although there is renovations going on it didn't affect our stay at all. HUGE room with 2 queen beds and a sofa too made our hotel experience very comfortable! The location is excellent too...just steps away from Michigan Avenue and all the sights are within a decent walking distance! Would definitely stay here again if we return to Chicago! Staff very friendly too! 10/10 from us!

great location

we travelled as 3 females to this hotel and it was perfect. the location is perfect for the city, with everything in walking distance. the rooms we had were deluxe with river views and they were super with the best view by day and night. I would highly recommend this hotel.

It has a perfect location and facilities were very good. It is a perfect hotel for a Chicago holiday and its position is very central for all entertainment.It is the fifth time we have stayed at the hotel because of its position.

Great Location. Staff were really helpful, polite and down to earth. The food and drinks were expensive in the restaurant / bar.

Loistava sijainti

Tämä hotelli on loistavalla paikalla ja hotellista voi kävellä kaikkiin nähtävyyksiin. Huoneet olivat isot ja siistit, jokinäköala oli todella upea. Henkilökunta oli avuliasta ja hotellissa oli vielä ilmainen Wi-Fi. Suosittelen oikein lämpimästi tätä hotellia.

Superbe hôtel

Hôtel très bien situé , au pied du départ de la balade en bateau , au bord de Chicago river et près des transports en commun . Principales visites du loop accessibles à pied (Michigan avenue , state street , Wrigley building ...) Chambre de luxe très grande , avec surtout une vue inoubliable sur North River (trump tower marina city en face des baies vitrées) Personnel attentionné et bien informé . Propreté et confort très bien . Pour les personnes qui ne souhaitent pas prendre le petit déjeuner à 'l'hôtel ; (qui semble un peu couteux) , la "corner bakery" est ouverte 7j/j et l'on y trouve à quelques mètres de l'hôtel des bonnes choses 'muffins parfait à la fraise gâteaux à la cannelle ) également possibilité de faire emballer son panini pour balader en toute liberté .

Bien situé

L'hôtel est parfaitement situé. Très proche du Loop et à proximité du Mag Mile. De plus, les quartiers un peu plus éloignés sont vites atteints, soit à pied pour River East, soit en métro pour les autres. Aucun commentaire négatif à formuler au sujet de l'hôtel, excepté le petit-déjeuner le matin du marathon (7.10.12). Ils auraient dû prévoir un forfait pour le tout et ne pas faire payer les aliments à la pièce.
