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 spacious by Chicago standards, especially the popular Riverview Double Queen rooms. Wi-Fi is complimentary, and guests can expect flat-panel TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, rain-forest showers and plush linens. 

Hoyt's, the on-site restaurant, serves "creative Midwestern-inspired fare" (Fodor's) and the outdoor patio is a great place for a drink in warmer months. The hotel's fitness center features lovely skyline views and while there's no spa, guests can arrange for in-room massage appointments. 

Batman fans take note: The hotel’s ballroom was the setting for Bruce Wayne’s penthouse apartment in the 2008 film "The Dark Knight."

The only issue was that we were put on the 28th floor with a bunch of teens that were some type of team. AT 5:30 am each morning they start slamming the doors. Hotel staff would do good to try not to put normal customers on the same area as teams due to the fact that the doors make ALOT of noise when they close even when you are careful. And this team was not trying to be careful at all!!

The location on the river was great!

My only comment (made to the manager) was that the breakfast buffet could have been a little better. For a hotel of that 'status' it was pretty 'lame.' Would have loved some yogurt or sweet rolls besides eggs/bacon/sausage/potatoes. But for priced we paid with Travel Zoo, can't complain!
