A friend and I stayed here for a long weekend vacation. Before we came, we did a lot of looking online at the hotel. However, when we got to the hotel things just seemed to different; from the lobby to even the exterior. The room was just ok, but the maid service was great. We got new towels and different... More

This is a well located hotel with attractive, updated rooms. I stayed in a studio with a modern kitchen, flat panel TV, and a clean, comfortable bathroom (shower only). As usual at this level Marriott, internet service is free. When I first walked in, I was amazed by what I got for the money. Add in the excellent location, friendly... More

My 2 daughters and I stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a great experience. The location can't be beat, we walked almost everywhere and never felt unsafe at all. The room was very clean and the kitchenette was really lovely. The bathroom was clean and updated with a separate sink/vanity area which helped when 3 women were... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night on business. The front desk staff were so helpful and accomodating. They gave me a free upgrade. I was so surprised to go to the room and find a kitchen with full fridge, sink, granite counter, microwave and free microwave popcorn. There was a normal size coffee pot with a few packets... More

When I checked into this hotel, I told the concierge that I was a light sleeper, and requested a room away from lift machinery and fire doors that may bang shut. My room seemed acceptable, with a view out from the side of the hotel. However, EVEN WITH EARPLUGS IN, I was woken the first morning by a refuse cart... More

We used priceline to book hotel and flight for $860 roundtrip for 2 for 3 nights. Such a nice deal, and we'll definitely do again next Easter weekend! The only negative is that there are no stairs leading to the first floor. Lots of people complained about the breakfast area not being big enough but the breakfast had everything and... More

We visited Chicago for spring break in March 2009. We arrived at the hotel early and although our room was not ready we we called on our cell phone when the room was finished. Upon entering our room we were very pleased. We stayed in a studio room, but since there were only two of us there was plenty of... More

We stayed one night at a great rate of $89 through travelzoo. The staff could not have been more nice and helpful. While we were checking in and out, they were getting compliments from other guests. The room was very clean and the kitchen really helps when traveling with children. The full size refrigerator was a big plus! The location... More

There is not one negative thing to say about this lovely Michigan Avenue hotel (it's one block from Water Tower Place). The hotel staff was awesome. We got to the hotel at noon. Check in wasn't until 3:00 and they said they would call us on our cell phone as soon as our room was available. I couldn't believe it,... More
