Time for another snapshot – this time exploring the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, in Rosemont, IL
For those of you who are new to the blog:
- Trip Reports – These are full deep-dive reports taking you into the experience and the small things… as well as the big things!
- Snapshots – These are bite-sized reviews that show you the basic product in some nice gentle headlines (and normally, only images shot on the phone)
The hotel is just off the main freeway link between O’Hare and downtown. It’s pretty hard to miss.
The hotel offers a shuttle bus everything 15 minutes between the airport and the hotel. It’s also a 10-minute walk to Rosemont CTA station for easy access into the city
As I had walked over from The Crowne Plaza O’Hare (a good 1,300 step walk), I lugged my luggage and myself to Check-in.
A high-level room – with a view of the city – was granted, and keycards issued. An extended checkout was offered (and taken).
Being in the main section of the hotel, I’m in the atrium section as opposed to the “Executive tower”
The room is the classic Hyatt Regency O’Hare room we’ve come to know and love in these snapshots and trip reports. Three of us would be staying in the room to save costs
There was two queen sized beds, desk, and large television.
The room had access to a balcony, which is great you want to view of the city.. or to watch planes.
The bathroom was reasonably equipped, with new bathroom smellies turning up at this Hyatt.
The room was serviced each day and cleaned appropriately.
The hotel was busy thanks to a Republican Convention (with Vice President Pence visiting). I was not impacted by this (as I had timed myself to be doing other things with friends at this point), but there was extra security in the area.
Food and Drink
I took advantage of the Red Bar once for the usual Fried Calamari and Cola. Mainly as it was a tradition, but also as one of the few chances to get a decent hot meal for the next few days.
The check-out process was a bit of mess thanks to three people contributing to the bill. Eventually, it was all sorted out, with holds being released one by one.
A shuttle bus was taken back to the airport. Although if you are bound for the International Terminal – allow extra time (30 minutes as opposed to the usual 15 minutes)
The full review soon!
