Time for another snapshot, this time focusing on the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
In case you’ve forgotten how we do travel write-ups on Economy class and Beyond, I have two major travel writing styles:
- 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).
Today, we’re on the Snapshot. The full in-depth review is very near completion.
The property is in Rosemont, off North River Road. It is served by a hotel shuttle or your choice of rideshare apps. It’s also a 10-minute walk from Rosemont Station.
There is a very limited door staff service at the front of the house. I was greeted and my bags were taken to the bell desk.
Checkin was delayed slightly due to a queue. There was an issue where my name was not on the reservation, which required me to contact my friend who had booked the room. Once done, I was able to check-in and grab room keys as needed.
Cleaning schedules were organised, with the hotel proposing either a three-day clean or daily clean. Due to three people sharing the room, a daily cleaning request was made.
A card swipe was taken at this point for room charges.
The room was on the 10th floor of the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, facing the city, but primarily the convention centre and airport – where a city view had been requested.
The room has twin large beds, a work desk and a balcony.
There was a Keurig machine to make coffee and tea with, along with a very large TV, along with a radio and a noise-making machine.
Although the angle of that TV worried me…
These beds seemed to have been through the mill, with them considerably softer than before, but just about on the right level of firmness.
Compared to the previous poetry, it felt small. All the essentials were there. This property is still using individual personal amenities, rather than bulk items.
Other amenities used at the hotel
The restaurant was not used – as it was limited to breakfast opening only.
The bar was utilised for an evening meal (which had limited hours).
whilst the coffee shop seemed to do good trade – even though the opening hours were limited compared to its previous 24-hour opening schedule.
The hotel operated a shuttle bus between it and O’Hare Airport – with no objections being taken to Terminal 5.
Check out felt rushed due to a lack of staff on the front desk and bell desk, with front desk staff having to do both tasks.
All charges were confirmed and taken over the next few days.
The full review of the Hyatt Regency O’Hare will be coming soon!
