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

I was nervous when I read some if the other reviews but we had a wonderful experience here. We were looking for a room with a separate living space and kitchenette since we were bringing along my 11 month old son and this place had it all.....and it was huge. The room was very clean we had a decent view... More

We made the reservation in internet, expecting two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms we had, the bathrooms we did not. There was just one, the tiniest I have ever seen. The whole establishment was a bit 80s. Nothing wrong with the 80s. The place is well maintained. The staff was second to none. They gave us all the info... More

This hotel is in a perfect location and the service was impeccable. Gwen at the front desk made us feel welcome the second we arrived. She even went the extra step to give my two sons gummy bears. There was a hotel representative at breakfast greeting all of the guests. The service was what really made our experience special.

This hotel was a great value, and I am picky about hotel rooms. It is clean, updated, huge, convenient, and in a great location. Considering the price, it is a great value. This is our go-to hotel when we are in Chicago.

This is my go-to hotel in Chicago. Friendly staff, great location, just a few blocks from Water Tower. I stayed at this location three times during the month of June, so it's nice to have a "home away from home" when I travel. Wonderful value in the Near North Side area of the city.

I travel both for business and with family and find the twain don't often meet. However last time through Chicago my business needs required a certain area so I wound up in this Residence Inn. It's a vertical Residence Inn, as opposed the townhouse style they like in suburban locales. Room was great, spacious and clean. As this level, there's... More

A return visit once again proved that this is about the best hotel value in the city. The 1 bedroom suites are huge and comfortable. The location can't be beat. Don't stress out about a high floor or not, the views are not the reason to go with this hotel. Staff is efficient and pleasant. Breakfast is very good and... More

Nice hotel in a great location. Walking distance to a lot of great locations. Easy access to bus and rail. We travel often with another couple and have stayed in Residence Inns often. We prefer the 2 BR suites and have stayed in them in many cities. This 2-BR only had one bathroom. Sink in the hallway, common area. 3... More
