Time for another hotel snapshot – this time looking at one of the properties I end up most in the USA – The Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
The hotel is in Rosemont, near O’Hare International Airport, next to a conference centre and Rosemont CTA station.
The hotel is split into a main block, a conference area on the ground floor, the International level and the Executive Wing.
Towards the check-in area
Look out for this. It’s the Pokemon Go Gym. There’s also a PokeStop too nearby.
Check in is handled one floor above the entrance. There were no issues with check-in, with room keys issued for all parties in the room (I was sharing the room with a friend). This was a major improvement on last time – when they managed to remove my friend from the check-in list (even though she was one to book the room). A room was assigned in the main block.
It’s the same old Hyatt Regency room I’ve been in and out of since… 2009. I’ve lost count the amount of times I’ve been here.
There is a major change to the room though – they’ve replaced the televisions that were there. Not they were large enough already… but the new ones are… dominating the room.
TV and workspace.
That TV is nothing short of big. Makes looking at the Silver Haired fox that is Anderson Cooper a little easier….
The Bathroom was its usual well configured self.
The rest of the room is still the same – including the one thing I love about the rooms in the main block – a balcony.
But that’s another subject.
WiFi speeds varied a lot between the room, public areas and the stability of it was… worrying at some points (it was dropping a fair bit in the public areas). In-room was pretty stable.
Shuttle buses run every 15 minutes – providing one of the best connections between a hotel and O’Hare Airport.
As I didn’t buy any of the breakfast or dinner services (rather I was snacking or busy), I didn’t take advantage of most of the food facilities until the final night – where I went for some Calamari.
Why yes. I like Calamari.
The full review coming soon.
