Good 6.0
Outdated property
We stayed at the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront for 2 nights for a family wedding that was held at the hotel. Upon arrival, I noticed that the property has absolutely nothing to do with "grand". It's a pretty narrow building, and the entrance is quite small. There are 3 or 4 small elevators but they are all very slow and it took FOREVER to go up and down. The rooms are very dated but I saw a notice about a renovation coming up so I hope it will give it a much needed facelift. Our bathroom smelled a little like pee too but since we were there only for 2 nights, I didn't bother to report it. Oh, and there were yellow stains on one of the white towels. The bright side is, when we asked if we could have a river view room, the nice lady at the front desk gave us a river view room that is HUGE - it spans from the front of the hotel to the back and it has a living room, kitchenette with wet bar, plus a bedroom, and windows on three sides. It was more than twice the size of our kids' room next door. Location of the property is very good though, it's right along the river across from the Trump Tower where the architectural boat tour departs. It's also within walking distance to many restaurants.

high price parking
first off we get to Chicago and call the hotel for exact location and since they said they have parking we asked them about it while we had them on the phone she's says yes we have parking its 67.00 a night so we ended up parking5 min walk away for 45 a day then our thermostat said 60 but we couldn't even sleep under our sheets it was so warm they sent maintence to fix problem but didn'tnever offered us another room or anything

A few issues but overall a great stay.
We choose this hot as this is where our business conference was being held. Air conditioning in our room and many other travelers rooms was not working. We asked for a fan but it did very little. The elevators were being worked on so during peak periods you could be waiting 15 minutes, we were on the 37th floor. Should have a pillow option, there are only very soft pillows, I prefer a firm pillow to support my neck. No pool or hot tub, I was ok without but our friends would have preferred a hotel with pool. Other than the above the rest of the stay was pleasant. Fantastic location! Beds were comfortable. View was spectacular, we were upgraded to a river view! Food was awesome! Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Fair 4.0
The hotel was fully booked, it only has 4 elevators but only 2 of them were working. Each time we had to waited for 10+ minutes to either up or down. We were late for a wedding at the penthouse and finally took the service elevator ..very very frustrated and unhappy.

Would have e been 5 stars but...
Everything was excellent except for the delays waiting for the elevator. They were upgrading their elevators and we had some long waits.
