Recently stayed here for a long weekend & had a great trip. The location is ideal, just 1 block walk to Lake Michigan, or dining / shopping along Michigan Ave. Navy Pier is a 25 minute walk away or rent a bike & trek along the lake shore, there's so much to do along the lake in the summer which...

We've stayed here several times now, and you just can't beat the location for the money. It's just off Michigan Ave, around the corner from the Hancock Tower -- which means you've got restaurants, shopping, etc. all within a few blocks in all directions -- plus you can see Lake Michigan from the front door. Staff is always extremely helpful,... More

Pros: Walking distance to shopping albeit very expensive high end and plenty of restaurants. The staff were friendly. Free breakfast and wifi. There were free appetisers mid week during our stay from 6-7:30pm. Coin operated Guest Laundry is very handy! Cons: The size of the Bathroom for a 2 Bed apartment was absolutely ridiculous. The sink was in the hallway... More

3 Our room was amazing, beautiful layout and everything was spacious, comfortable,  and very clean.  The valet parking was very expensive,  but still worth itto not have to drive around the mag mile traffic searching for a better deal.   the staff were friendly and helpful, especially the maid working on the 2nd floor this morning (8/15).   My one...

What was supposed to be a 50th birthday celebration with a friend turned into a comedy of errors minus the comedy. They gave away our reserved rooms on the first night, overcharged us for the weekend, and then refused to refund the money. Save yourself the hassle and book with another hotel. There are plenty other establishments nearby who will... More

We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is small, quite different from the other Marriott hotels I've stayed before. Breakfast was included and just OK for the first two days, After that we found it boring and crowded, but as we had a kitchen, we took advantege of it and could prepare... More

The staff is such a delight, giving recommendations and coupons for local dining. They had an umbrella to loan when it was raining and all had the most cheerful smiles. Loved every minute! I will be back in the fall to enjoy this lovely hotel.

Marriott has pretty much spoiled us over many years. We have come to expect great customer service, cleanliness, value, a feeling of being welcomed while we are in a hotel over a long history of staying in Marriott properties. This property meets and goes beyond all of these standards. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with staff... More
