So it is still really hot. Well into the hundreds. But we forge ahead .. Today was all about the Museum of Science and Industry in Hyde Park. "Amazing" is how Noah described it. Really he did. I would whole-heartedly agree. We saw: 1. A United 727 jet from the mid 60s and got to walk through it. 2. A tornado simulator that had a giant swirly cloud …
Our journey now takes us to what has become a tradition for Noah and I. Find the tallest building and go up as far as we can. Several times we have conquered the Empire State Building and nothing compares to the history there. But, for altitude, the Willis Tower has it beat. A few fun facts to appreciate (or not): It is the tallest building in …
First morning of my vacation and I am up @ 630am. That would be 430am Pacific. yet, still Noah was up before me. Our day went like this ... Millennium Park. If Chicago is ever supposed to be as good as New York City (bah!) it better get a big park right in the middle. Well, this is a start. Quite a big start, actually. Right by Lake Michigan are …
Finally. Hugs and kisses to lisa and soph as we took off into the foggy gray skies aboard the flying hipster lounge that is VirginAmerica. Quick tangent: I love VA. It has the basic inconveniences of other airlines (cramped seats, coffin-like bathrooms, etc.) . But, the sleek white plastic seat backs, the periwinkle mood lighting, the light jazzy …
Today was an amazing day – crazy busy, but amazing and great!
We got off to a rough start at 6:30 AM – we need to really add a few ours to the day…maybe make a day last 27 or 28 hours instead of 24. Anyway, we all managed to get in the car by 8:00 AM, but we still needed to find a geocache in Wisconsin. We got skunked on …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Chicago
We Will Definitly return!
We recently spent four nights at the Hyatt on Wacker drive, and I have to say that our experience was top-notch. When we arrived we knew that the Hotel was full and had arrived before check in. Since our room was not ready we were upgraded to a room on the 33rd floor that was an executive suite, complete with a fabulous view of the city. The staff went out of their was to meet our needs and each was friendly and not "stuffy" We will definitly return!
Never again will I stay here. Where do I begin? I took my family to Chicago for the Cirque Du Soleil show over the weekend.
Not up to par
I stayed at this hotel for a conference June 23, 2003 for 7 days. The hotel was out dated and I felt like I was staying at a motel. The rooms and hallways were very boring and I certainly wouldnt return as the service was very poor. Operaters taking very long to answer phones and very long lines at the check in and out counterYour best bet if you need to use the convention center is to stay accross the street at the Sheraton or up on Michigan Ave at Hotel intercontinental
A room for $99 a night during a holiday weekend (July 4th) a block from the "Magnificent Mile" is a find at a Hyatt, one that I found to be a great stay for a great rate.
We had a wonderful stay. No problem accommodating our request for 2 beds.
Room was clean, floor quiet, restaraunts outstanding, and the kids enjoyed exploring the "underground" complex.
We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Hyatt Regency Chicago on East Wacker Drive. I don't know why there are so many bad reviews on this hotel. We put in a couple requests by e-mail and everything was set when we got there! No problem. The check-in line was quick and painless. The room we had was on the 21st floor with floor to ceiling windows and views of the lake in both directions! It was a nice size room with 2 double beds. The only thing we lacked was more drawer space but that wasn't any big deal. They had a big closet to put everything. Our room had an Iron/Ironing Board, Blow Dryer, coffee maker, and lot's of shampoo/conditoners and soap. They kept us supplied with plenty of towels during our stay. The room was very clean. Room service and food were excellent. Yes,it's a BIG hotel with lot's of convention/business people, but that did not bother us nor would it keep us from coming back to the Hyatt Regency Chicago!
The worst trip
This was the worst hotel I ever stayed in. I had to stay there for a convention and I will never stay there again, The prices for there food was way to high. 75.00 for a steak dinner is too much for me. I go to three convention a year in different parts of the U.S. and I hope I never have to go back to this hotel . They do not have enough people to work in the hotel or any of the resturants or bars that they have. They do not clean the rooms very well. I was charged for valet parking and didn't even have a car there. they were nice and took it off the bill but I could have checked out faster if it had not been on the bill and the lines to check in or out were way too long. I don't have enough room to tell you all the problems just that I will never go back to that hotel again .
Felt like the 70's
Terrible checkin delay due to the large number of rooms.The lobby was a zoo of activity. No adequate gym facilities for a hotel of this size. Usually Hyatt Regency's are pleasant experiences not here! Felt that I should have stayed at the Swissotel next door. In fact that is where I am booked next visit.
Not nice 1st time going back
The first time we were there was for model search America. For a "flagship" it must be sinking. There is no pool, lacking recreation, and many other amenities that would make a "flagship" just that. Were going back in to chitown tonight, so I'll see if it has improved.
Not very nice for a Hyatt
Went here for the Business Profesionals of America conference in May 2002. So the hotel was pretty crowded with schools from all over the country. Still, it was depressing for a Hyatt. Dark hallways, dark rooms on our floor, though others were nicer. Pool....what pool?! For this being their "flagship" property it was not too nice. Also, they need more elevators, they only have 3 for the entire building we were in!
