... around holding it and some very different characters indeed. The game was pretty boring up until the last couple of innings when it went from one team up to even to the other team being up to even and then finally one team winning the entire game in the last innings with only one out to spare. It got intense lets say. The whole crowd was on their feet. After the baseball a group of us headed back to the hostel to try and get a good nights sleep before the huge day we had planned for ...
... but, of course there is always a but, the room is at the back of the hotel and faces on a very busy street with lots of cars and big trucks. I slept fine but Kindy had a tough night. On the upside, the hotel will shuttle us over to CruiseAmerica where we will have to get in line with 40 other people picking up RVs today. They are so busy they would not even schedule a pickup time, they just said come in and first come, first served. So we will head over about 10 and get in ...
... the only passengers on the trolley, this way we could personalize our tour a bit. We went to all the famous points in the city, like the Water Tower, Navy Pier or Willis Tower.
The trolley tour was a very good start, this way we got the first impression of the city. The only downside was again the weather and the fog...
We took also a free walking tour which, again, took place in pouring rain. But we ...

I don't even think it was my persuasion but rather the growling and gnawing of his stomach that did him in. Our search for food within the downtown area lead us past the famed Miro's Chicago statue.

With my new Brandon Marshall jersey on and finally deciding that I was going to take all my camera lenses I headed off to Soldier Field. Unfortunately, the NFL have introduced a new bag policy and the bags they've approved are the tote bag design and to say I felt a little effeminate making my way to the game with this bag would be an understatement. As I got off the 'L' I crossed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Chicago
Make this one your Chicago destination
Just got back from our New Year's Eve at the Park Hyatt and all I can say is it was FABULOUS! The rooms are very modern with lovely down bedding. They have a great sound system, DVD/CD player in the bedroom, and small flat screen in the bathroom. The room was very clean and I found it to be one of the most beautiful rooms ever. We have stayed at Bellagio in Vegas and it was every bit as lovely. The bathroom was all marble with a double soaker tub. We had the package which included brunch, valet parking, chocolate strawberries, and champaign. THe brunch was delicious and you could pick off the menu. Good deal! Can't wait to go back. Close to shopping and many restaurants.
Large but, nice
Stayed 12/10 - 12/13 booked through priceline $90 per night. Arrived at 12:15 was able to check in my room with no problem. All requests were meet (i.e. non-smoking, king bed, away from the elevator & view of the water). Room was clean and spacious. The only complaints I do have are as follows:
Lighting is poor in room & bathroom
Pipes makes noise in the middle of the night (loud enough to wake you)
Not enough drawer space
Overall, the hotel was nice but, extremely large. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. Good location to Michigan Ave (State St is about a 15 minute walk).
PS I did take my own linen and pillows because of other reviews. There's looked clean but to be on the safe side I used my own!
A Guaranteed Approval!
When I visit a hotel, I rate the hotel by the service, decor,cleanliness, bathroom, and ammenities. This hotel is the epitome of hotels in Chicago. Its a little expensive in comparision to the other hotels, but it is well worth it. The bathroom was one of my best picks. It was very clean and the decor was like a spa retreat. On the seventh floor, the hotel features an upscale and yet intimate indoor and outdoor lounge. I really liked the idea of having the best of both worlds. I could go outside and enjoy the weather and overlook the downtown area or I could stay inside and have a window view. The location is great for visitors from out of town and even locals trying to relax or party. Stay at the park hyatt and let the hotel speak for itself!
As a frequent business visitor to Chicago, I had the great fortune (luck) to be booked at the Park Hyatt during a typical Chicago week when my usual hotels (Drake, Peninsula, Renaissance) were fully booked as was the Park Hyatt. At the last minute, a cancellation became available and my experience could not have been nicer. Excellent service, beautiful room, fabulous gym and swimming pool (though a larger hot tub would be great) and outstanding service at the exquisite NoMi restaurant. I hated to check out and look forward to my next visit to Chicago when I will request my travel agent to book me at the Park Hyatt. If you appreciate museum-quality art and decor, and superb service, this is the place for you. Where the Peninsula has a Hong Kong-kitsch style and the Drake is downright funeral parlour 1940's social register, the Park Hyatt is TODAY but with plenty of warmth and class.
My husband and I have stayed here twice for romantic weekend getaways and it was even better the 2nd time. The rooms are luxurious - DVD player, TV in the bathroom, some rooms have bathtubs with a view - and the service is unbelievable. We had afternoon tea in NoMI and ordered room service when they were booked for dinner - great food and they were very accomodating to our special requests. On our 2nd visit, we were promised the 17th floor (2nd highest, highest available the night before) and they put us on 9. We reminded them we were promised 17 and after profuse apology and a short wait in the library, we were moved to 14 and given a certificate for free afternoon tea or drinks as consolation. The room was an upgraded corner room with lake view and even better than we expected anyway so we weren't disappointed. Hyatt does something special when training their staff - they're the friendliest I've ever met. And you always get a complimentary check-in beverage, escort to the elevator, and your bags are whisked away and magically appear in your room.
What a Great Hotel
I was in town for a conference and had the pleasure of staying at the Park Hyatt. The room was to die for. Service impeccable! The sunken tub next to my bed was a nice touch. Loved the down comforter, gorgeous view and posh clean environment. Highly recommend. Will efinately be back for the romantic weekend special
Almost didn't want to leave the room!!!!
Just finished a holiday weekend stay at the Park Hyatt. It was amazing... We ordered the Romance package -- the service was beyond great. I will definitely recommend this hotel without reservation to anyone looking to splurge and be pampered for a while.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We love this hotel. We were checked in quickly and personally walked up to our room. The rooms are lovely with down comfortors, dvd/cd players in every room, and a plasma screen tv in the bathroom. We received complementary champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries soon after arrival as they knew it was our honeymoon. We never saw a maid once and yet our room was turned over three times a day. If you feel like staying in for the evening, there is a closet behind the front desk with a large selection of DVD's that can be taken back to your room for no extra charge. While the service is excellent, it isn't stuffy. We felt comfortable walking through the lobby in jeans and a baseball cap. The location is excellent with lots of shopping within walking distance. Could not recommend this hotel more highly.
A great getaway!!!
My wife and I stayed at the Park Hyatt for our anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The complimetary beverages as we check in were great, the room was large with comfortable furniture (my wife loved the television next to the bathtub!). Overall we were very impressed with our stay, but the best part wasn't until we left. As we were preparing to leave and flag a cab for the ride to the train station the bell hop saw us and offered us the use of the hotel's Mercedes to take us to the station. What a nice perk! We would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone going to Chicago. Yes, it is a little more expensive than some of the other hotels in the area, but compared to other hotels in its class(4 seasons, Ritz-Carleton) it is a great value for the service that you get.
A first class experience
The Park Hyatt is located just off North Michigan Avenue adjacent to the famous Water Tower. Abundant shopping and restaurants are close by and its only a short cab ride to the Art Institute.The hotel itself has been extensively refurbished with ample and tastefully decorated guest rooms. It is a very efficient operation from the time one pulls up to the entrance. With a reservation you should be in your room within 5 minutes. There is an excellent hotel bar and a superb restaurant for those that may want to stay in one night. Check out was equally efficient and overall the experience was fantastic.
