I didn't realize that this hotel used to be Wyndham Hotel a couple of years ago. I was impressed with how clean and nice the hotel was. I will definitely visit again. I loved the room rates also.

It’s nice, clean, large rooms. But you have to ask for lotion and hair dryer which is normally in hotel rooms. And because the cleaning staff doesn’t come in until 8am, I was late for my meeting (they didn’t bring the hair dryer until 8:30). OTW a great place to stay in a great location.

The alternative to the out of service valet parking was terrible and extremely frustrating. The Lazypark website access wasn’t explained at all by your concierge, and the parking garage staff attempted to help but they weren’t familiar enough with the correct procedure. I had to find the cashier for assistance at both entry and exit. When After walking through the garage to find the cashier for assistance, I had to walk back to my car to get the license plate for the Lazypark checking. It took a total of 25 minutes and resulted in my wife and I missing the light show on the River walk The exit process didn’t work either. We had to go to the cashier again. It took 20 mins to exit. We were almost late to our reservations at the Immersive Van Gough Experience. Very Frustrating!!! The only bad experience during our stay in Chicago!!!!
