I recently stayed at the Wyndham Grand for a business trip. The conference was actually at the Hyatt but that was sold out so ended up at the Wyndham.

After driving in circles because google maps was confused about how to get to Wacker Drive and the Wyndham, we were in no mood for any more hassles. When we finally drove up to the door, the valet greeted us as if we were long lost family and helpfully got us situated. The staff at the front desk was pleasant...

We were staying at the hotel for the three nights in mid March and truly enjoyed the stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The view from our 18th floor was stunning. Everything was close by.

The hotel was located perfectly for our first trip to Chicago. Just a few blocks from Millenium Park; we could see Michigan Ave from our window; the river was just across the street. The staff were all very nice and attentive.
