The Hyatt Regency O’Hare
Oh yes. We’re back at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. I got out of my Uber, and was welcomed by the door staff who took my luggage off me as I headed up to check-in.
Up the stairs
Hello Tentacle Monster.
I headed to check in.
Everything was in order, with the room booked in my and my friends names and initially a room was offered in the Executive Tower. As a general rule, I don’t like the Executive tower as 1) its a hike from the main building to the executive tower and 2) I like a balcony. Therefore a room in the main block was secured, with a high floor and view over the city.
The ulterior motive for that view is so my friend and I can watch planes during the quiet moments we have over the weekend.
With that done, keycards were issued for a room on the 10th floor. With that, it was off to my room.

To the room!
The room itself is a pretty standard Hyatt Regency O’Hare room that I’ve covered a lot of times before. But for those who are new to me reviewing this property, here’s the room
With the lights off
With the lights on
TV (this was upgraded last trip to the massive screen you’re seeing today)
Big TV is big.
Workstation and in-room coffee
The Hyatt beds were their usual comfortable selves – in that if I spend any time in one, I’ll be asleep fast. The room itself was in good order with no worn carpets and everything in the places that I expect them.
Onto the bathroom – and again, it’s a pretty standard bathroom for a Hyatt Regency O’Hare with a shower/bath combo, wash basin and toilet.
Amenities are still the KentMD – not offensive to anyone (but then I think I was one of the few people in the world who liked the White Ginger).
Body lotion, hair dryer
I’ll be honest – when I’m at the Hyatt, I have limited time to myself – so I don’t get to use many of the amenities (such as the restaurant, or gym).
Entrance the Gym.
The main amenity I use is the one we have in the room – the balcony. It allows my friend and me to relax in the evening in peace, and watch planes go by.
Providing they’re flying into O’Hare. If they’re flying out of O’Hare, the job becomes a lot harder.
And the room gives a wonderful view of the city.
During the night
And as for planes – a varied mix. Of course, if the cloud is low, all you’re left with is the equivalent of a tease.
United Airlines Boeing 737-900ER
Virgin America Airbus A320
Delta Air Lines Boeing 717.
Check out was handled smoothly (with a late check-out confirmed), with the bill settled correctly.
With everything done and my luggage put back together, my short visit to Chicago was coming to an end – it was time to switch from pleasure… to business.
Overall: The Hyatt Regency O’Hare again delivers a consistent product with a lot of the little niggles being ironed out one at a time – and this is a good thing to see with a hotel I frequent for my fair share of trips to the USA. Again – I can recommend the property if you’re stuck in the O’Hare region.
