It was just okay. Elevators weren't working properly, and those are some really confusing elevators - it's the mirrors. This is really a so-so property. I got my reservations through Travelocity and there was a mess up with my reservations. I reserved for 2 nights and was locked out of my room on my second day! I don't know who screwed up yet, but I do not plan on using either Wyndham or Travelocity again - if it's not fixed right.

We're sorry, this is not the experience we want you to have at our property. Our elevators are undergoing a big renovation, and we understand the wait can be frustrating at times. We appreciate your patience. We do hope you stay with us again soon, so you can give us another chance to earn your valued business.

Nice hotel with great location, we got a 36th floor corner room, with wonderful view of both the river and city. fortunately, we were not on the river side, with the garish and glaring “Trump” sign in our view.

Nice hotel in a great location. Right out the front door is the Trump building. To the right is the Chicago Tribune. Loved the stand up shower in the room. Pleased with the customer service...Allison (concierge) was awesome and a great help.

Pros: The cleaning people did a great job.Very cheerful,accommodating.The waiter whodelivered onthe first morning cameat the time requested and was cordial.
Cons: Better elevators:crowds came and we all scampered to the one elevator that arrived. Better service from workers who just mill about in the lobby.
Location: Near all in walking distance. Restaurants, bars, boats, site-seeing, shopping.
Was expecting service each day not just on the first day. First time traveling in years and chose the Wyndham. Found the Breakfast card to choose order for the next day. Next day there was no card so at 11:30pm getting ready for bed called down to the lobby from the 37th floor asking for a card to be delivered. They expected me to go down to the lobby to get it myself in my pajamas. The day before leaving -- unless it's a new way that hotels provide service or non service -- I asked for help with getting my boarding pass before going to the airport and voucher for shuttle to the airport. They don't and won't do that. Third, they gave me the final bill with a different amount in my credit card. I will call about this, but hotel won't be recommended for their service.
