Heading from the Radisson, I arrived at my usual residence in Chicago – the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. Why? It’s a convenient base for me, and also I meet a lot of my friends in the region here. So it’s here I stay.
That and the corporate rate I’m on is good.
Whoa. Photos of the hotel in daylight. This is a new thing for me.
Up close with reception.
I headed up to the reception area, noting where the Pokemon Gym and PokeStops are. Why yes, I play Pokemon Go (and at the time of writing, I’m playing Pokemon Moon).
Hyatt Regency O’Hare PokeStop.
And the Gym… and yes – it was mine multiple times.
Although I love this picture. A lot.
Let’s move onto non Pokemon Go matters. Check-in was handled well (and my room-mate didn’t get taken off the room this time… unlike last March)
I was assigned a room in the main block, up high and a view towards the city. This would be helpful as I needed to test my 100-400L lens… and also.. it’s a great view.
Heading up the room, I trotted my trash to 9th floor.
Into the room, and it’s the good olde Hyatt Regency O’Hare room… and it hasn’t changed much at all.
Well except for one little thing
Yes, there’s a larger television. And when I say large…
Ah. The Silver fox that is Anderson Cooper
I mean large. It pretty much dominates the room. Good thing the telly is top-notch quality.
By the bed, there’s usual noise generator, along with two power outlets. Good for those of us who need to charge phones.
Meanwhile the view outside was a great view of the city from far away… during the day…
And during the night.
Let’s move onto the bathroom. The bathroom again was clean and well maintained, filled with the usual KentMD amenities. And I like these amenities as they do the job rather well. They’re neutral smelling and don’t seem to ruin hair or skin (but then again – I liked White Ginger from Hyatt… so what do I know?)
Towel, body lotion and soap.
A big tip: Don’t get the king rooms in the turret of this hotel – the showers are titchy. The main rooms have bigger bathrooms. Also, I would avoid the executive wing unless you don’t need to be anywhere in a hurry.
I don’t tend to dine when at the Hyatt (namely because I’m rushed off my feet during the weekend catching up and doing bits and bobs), but Sunday came… and I was at a loose end. I therefore had some calamari at the Red Bar. It’s a kind of tradition.
Appetizer for one?
The Calamari – wasn’t rubbery at all. Nicely seasoned and a good portion. Well, it’s better than eating Instant noodles isn’t it?
There’s also a shop that sells coffee, snacks and other things. Amazingly this trip, I only used it twice for Coffee.
Because lets face it, hotel room coffee is grim – no matter which way you cut it.
Check out was handled effectively and quickly… and this time, the hotel got it right as opposed to charging a few dollars extra a few days later.
Improvements take one step at a time.
Overall: The Hyatt Regency O’Hare continues to improve step by step. It still has a high-class of customer service, and its the little things that have irked me in the past. This time – things have improved. I hope to see a continued improvement when I return in March…
