Travelers "won't want for comfort" (Frommer's) at the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront, a sleek 39-story downtown hotel set one block from both the Loop and the famed Magnificent Mile. Rooms at this AAA 4-Diamond hotel are quite spacious by Chicago standards, especially the popular Riverview Double Queen rooms. Wi-Fi is complimentary, and guests can expect flat-panel TVs, Keurig coffee makers, rainfall showers and plush bedding.

On-site restaurant Hoyt's serves a menu "rooted in familiar ingredients" that offers "punchy flavors" (Gayot); the outdoor patio is a good place for a cocktail in warmer months. The hotel's fitness center features lovely skyline views, and while there's no spa, guests can arrange in-room massage appointments. Batman fans take note: The hotel’s top-floor ballroom was the setting for Bruce Wayne’s penthouse apartment in the 2008 film "The Dark Knight."

Rooms are clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The only complaint is that there were only two elevators working during our visit. In the morning, we would have to walk down ten flights of stairs since the working elevators were always full. One evening, there was a line for the elevators that went all the way through the lobby and we were late to our dinner reservation since we couldn't get to our room. One time the cleaning staff felt sorry for us and let us use their elevator and we had to walk through the kitchen to make our way to the lobby.

The temperature in the room was on 64 degree's but really felt like 75 degree's. Otherwise, view was spectacular. Location was perfect and ease of getting checked in was great.

Other Comments
Avoid the middle floors. We were on the 12th floor and by the time the slow elevators got to our floor, they were full. After four, full rlevators on Sunday morning, we took the "up" elevator to go down. The room we had was also next to the elevator and was noisy.

location worked great for getting to theater district as well as north of river.
Other Comments
Breakfast buffet was very weak... not much in the way of fruit or choice of selections. Burners under food was not lit so food was lukewarm to cold.

Location was great, easy access to both sides of Michigan avenue and theatre district. The bar/restaurant was good as well. All employees were friendly.
