Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront

71 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601
4.5
4 reviews

Big and sleek, the Wyndham Grand (formerly Hotel 71), offers plenty for those looking to stay close to the action, or those who just want great views of downtown and the river. The way the river cuts through Chicago creates a valley of glass skyscrapers and water, a concrete canyon of sorts. It’s one of the best views in town. ...

    86 reviews

    Like most of Chicago, everything is pretty big as is this street which is unusually wide by most major city standards. It's lined up with huge buildings and loads of shopping.

    Winding through the city and one of the reasons Chicago has grown through history. Best experienced on a boat tour, on Saint Patrick's Day (when it is dyed green), and over one of the many bridges.

    Home of the skyscraper, taking the time to appreciate the city's architecture is a major thing to do when you're in town. There are a lot of boat tours to choose from, but your money is best spent on the slightly more expensive tour run by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. With experienced, knowledgable staff, you'll walk away tons of fun ...

    This bridge goes over the Chicago River along Michigan ave which connects the Magnificent Mile and South toward Millennium Park and the Museum Campuses. Stop and enjoy the great view of the city. Enjoy a summer stroll but be careful of the piercing winds during the winter.

    The staffers at Wendella are SO nice! They were very welcoming and understanding when we ran up to the dock 10 seconds before it was scheduled to sail away... For a 2+ hour boat ride priced at $25, I believe we got our money's worth in most aspects. Yes, there were beautiful views of the buildings from the river and ...

    The walking area along the Chicago River was well thought out. There are two levels of the Riverwalk filled with benches, small park areas and restaurants. Take a snapshot here from almost any angle and have it look distinctively Chicago.

    I like this place because it shows love to locals. Tuesdays people who live in the neighborhood get in for free! The blues and music here is really good so if you want a place to listen to some good music in an unpretentious setting then this is the spot. Drinks are really well priced too!

    Exactly what a jazz club should be....cozy, good drinks....great place talk and listen to great music. My husband and I walked passed a packed club (could hear the bass like two blocks away) and we both looked at each other and said "I'm so glad we didn't go there". ;)

    Wendalla runs several sorts of boat tours on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. I like the architecture tours that take you up the river to highlight the buildings on the river banks. Take a sunset tour so you end up on the lake at twilight to see the cityscape lit up.

    So, so very Chicago. Even if you can't make it to a show, it's worth walking by just to snap a picture of the quintessential logo. The theater is red velvet with gold trip and just beautiful. I have seen some amazing performances come through this historic venue.

    This should be the first, and will be the best thing you do in Chicago. Amazingly knowledgable guides from Chicago's architecture foundation give you a history of the Chicago skyline, and you'll enjoy their stories sipping on some excellent bloody marys.

    The chocolates here are so good!!! As one of the chocolate vendors part of the Chicago Chocolate Tour, Fannie May gave us the chocolate pixie (turtle) and two FM Artisan fine chocolates to sample: the dark chocolate and apple pie. So delicious, especially the apple pie. Coated with a red sugar coating, once you bite into it, it really tastes ...
