Typical suite style hotel. Nothing terrible about the stay, but nothing spectacular either. We found the hotel to be in need of updating. A couple of concerns- our suite was too warm when we arrived. I followed the instructions on the thermostat, but it didn't seem to help. There is apparently radiator type heating that cannot be controlled by the... More

Nice location, very friendly staff and plenty of room for my family of six. We were greeted by a friendly staff and beautiful lobby. Elevators were smaller, so I have to guess this was a renovated apartment building. We had the 2 bedroom suite, and while usage of 1 bathroom took some coordinating, we made it work. The continental breakfast... More

Thank you for staying with us! You are correct in that the hotel was an apartment/condo building prior to Marriott taking over and converting us into a hotel. It is always exciting to have some of the former apartment/condo residents back to stay with us now. Thanks again for taking a moment to share your comments. More

The location was fantastic, just steps away from Michigan Avenue, the Hancock and Water tower Place but far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of these attractions. Right around the corner on the lower level, there is a grocery store with an excellent selection of beer, wine, spirits, grocery items, produce, deli, frozen foods etc. of course this convenience...

Everyone we met was very welcoming and anxious to help however they could. The hotel room we had was amazing! Beds were very comfy and clean! The location of the hotel... More

We booked this trip in July for our annual holiday trip to someplace! My wife chose Chicago and the Mag Mile for shopping. I booked a room here for 4 nights, December 9-13. Our flight was one hour early, and we proceeded to hotel via shuttle. We walked in at 11:30am expecting to be told no check in until 3!... More

We are staying while my husband is having medical treatment at Northwestern Memorial. The staff here is very nice and welcoming. Very clean here but they will be renovating in Jan 2015. The location is just a few blocks from the Mag Mile and the waterfront. We will have spent about 7 weeks here total with no complaints.

Good afternoon. We are so excited to provide accomodations for our hospital patients. With our large rooms, equipped with full kitchens, it's the perfect place to unwind after a long day at the hospital. As you mentioned, we will be undergoing a complete room and lobby renovation to begin in mid January 2015, with a completion date of late March.... More
