Hyatt McCormick Place Chicago

I have lived in Chicago for over 18 years and half of that time I have spent in the suburbs. We love coming into the city for dinner, events and concerts. What I don’t love about Chicago is the traffic. When we were planning to go to Taylor Swift at Soldier Field a few weeks ago, I knew that we would need to stay overnight in a hotel. Staying in the city is always fun anyways!

I wanted to stay at a hotel that we could easily walk to Soldier Field with our girls. The Hyatt McCormick Place is the closet hotel to Soldier Field and it is a very easy  10 minute walk. The Hyatt was offering a $179 rate for the weekend. If you have stayed in Chicago at a hotel, you know that is a good rate.

We stayed in a gorgeous suite on the 29th floor with a double room and king room that were connected. All the rooms were modern and newly decorated. It was a perfect set up for all of us to sleep comfortably.  The suite allowed us to entertain and get ready with our friends before the concert.

The views were amazing from every direction of our suite and rooms. The view of Chicago never gets old.

Getting a big enough space to allow all the girls to get ready together before the concert was an amazing experience in itself. Of course we had to have a photo shoot in our suite!

It was a very easy and safe walk to  and from Soldier Field.

We were smart and ordered pizza’s to be delivered to our hotel. The pizza’s were at our hotel when we returned at 12:00 a.m. It was much needed after a long night of singing and dancing with Taylor Swift!

The Hyatt McCormick has several restaurants, lounges and a Starbuck’s. They have something for everyone in the family. We enjoyed a nice breakfast with our girls the next morning at the Shor restaurant. If you are coming to Chicago for the Air and Water Show or another event, make sure you check out the Hyatt McCormick Place. They  have a lot special offerings, such as the suite experience package and Air and Water Show package.
