Daily Wanderlust: The view from Hyatt Regency Chicago

Written by on July 5, 2012 in Destinations - 6 Comments

After spending quite a few nights in dodgy hotels and motels on our road trip, checking into the Hyatt Regency Chicago was pure bliss.

A secure door! More than one bed! A clean bathroom! And, of course, all of the amazing amenities that fancy hotels in a big city have.

Perhaps the best part about our stay at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, other than the beds (and they were amazingly comfortable) was the view. We were fortunate to have a room on the 31st floor of the hotel, which is located a stone’s throw from Millennium Park. From our huge window, we could see the lake which stretched out into the horizon.

By night, when the city’s towering skyscrapers are lit up, looking out our window was nothing short of absolutely breathtaking.

    That view is amazing! I’m a sucker for big city lights at night. The room sounds like it was pretty swanky, too!
