Located on 1 West Wacker Drive this Marriott property is ideally located for Chicago sight seeing. About 30-35 minutes from O'hare airport non rush hour. A short walk to the boat tours on Lake Michigan and or the Chicago River and less than a mile walk to Millennium Park and the Art Institute. A $12 cab ride to the Fields... More

stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Wonderful location and fantastic that the windows open! That's my big thing at hotels. HATE air con. It is very noisy with the windows open, but that's to be expected, perhaps offering earplugs with the soap etc would work. The downside of the hotel is that they charge an exorbitant amount for Internet... More

I stayed here for 5 nights attending a conference at McCormick place. It's ideally located to explore the city- walking distance from millennium park and close to mccormick. Friendly staff and well appointed rooms plus a great breakfast too

With an open weekend and some Marriott points to burn, we decided to spend the weekend in a downtown Chicago hotel. We considered several properties but chose this one for its location and a good past experience at a different Renaissance Hotel. The location is fantastic--right on the river with great views. We were on the 10th floor which was... More

We had a nice size room with great views of the river. Lobby was crowed and overpowered by high energy music. Front desk agents were short on friendliness and quick to inform you of their policies when requests were made. The Navigators (aka concierge) were knowledgeable, friendly and very easy to deal with. Location was superb and within walking distance... More

Stayed here for a week on business and wow, what a hotel. The hotel screams elegance even for a marriott property that's not a JW. The bellman were accomodating with luggage assistance and the front desk check in experience was awesome. As a member who stays more than 200 nights a year in Marriott properties, it's the little things that... More

I recently stayed two nights in this hotel for a conference. The location was great. It is located next to an L train stop (I took the train from Midway airport right to the hotel) and is within easy walking distance to many sights, bars and restaurants in Downtown Chicago. Some of the rooms have a nice view of the... More

The hotel is located in the middle of everything and close walk to main attractions in the City. But it is the customer service that really impressed, especially for a hotel this size, it would be easy to overlook the details, and everything was perfection and so attentive. And the continental breakfast is spectacular: buffet style with eggs, bacon, sausage,... More

The location is great near the shopping street and Chicago landmarks, such as the Bean, the arts institute and the aquarium. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The view from the rooms are amazing.
