Arriving into then hotel, I headed up the reception area. At the time I had arrived, the check-in area was quiet.
I was therefore seen to quickly, and was assigned a room in the block (and a double double, – this would be important for once as I would be bunking with a friend for a couple of days.
Don’t get any mucky ideas down the back. Oh fine. Have mucky ideas. They needed a place to crash, and I saw it as a chance to reduce the cash bill of the hotel.
I don’t object to that – it’s good to share time with friends. The fact we were pretty much on the same schedules and such meant there was no awareness or such.
The room itself… Well I’ll be honest – it hasn’t changed much since I first started coming here. Whilst the rooms are fine, they are becoming a little dated now with its interior.
At least the interior is still of a reasonable standard and well maintained.
Hyatt have tried to keep up, with the addition of a white noise machine as well as all the usual facilities a Hyatt Regency guest room has.
The bathroom had a bath it (a useful feature of the double rooms – the king sized ones only have a shower (and a pokey sized one at that)
It’s not bad – not in the least. It feels the rooms could do with a mod-life update though.
Supplies were replenished in the bathroom over the weekend, and the upkeep of the room was spotless – as I expect Hyatt to do.
However, as usual – there were things to be done at this hotel. The convention centre staff at this hotel really show their best sides as usual – something that’s important when you’re busy during a weekend.
I dined at the bar during my stay a couple of times. Whilst it was hotels food wasn’t badly priced, it was good quality delivered in a reasonable time frame.
Well, it was Calamari – traditional for me here.
And when with friends, tome is precious because you want to spend it with them.
On the day of checkout, everything was in order – with no unexpected charges or such. All good things
With that done, it was to,e to explore Chicago… which had warmed a lot… no need for leggings or beanies.
Overall: The Hyatt Regency O’Hare is still one of the nicer hotels in the O’Hare area. It’s also reasonably good value on a conference rate. The room decor is starting its show its age, and could do with an update – but the service at this hotel still keeps it a solid choice for me when travelling.
