I was in Chicago for a 6 week period from early November to mid-December 2008. I stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Downtown. Very good location and handy for shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Hotel was only opened in April, so felt very "new". The Residence Inn does a great social evening on Monday to Thursday and offers free... More

Obviously part of the Marriott chain so that pretty much lets you know what to expect in advance. Two bed suite was huge (950 sq feet). In brief, full kitchen, 3 flat screen tv's, absolutely massive living area with free wifi and hugh windows with beautiful views of lake Michigan ( we were on 18th floor ) and a free... More

I stayed at the Residence in while attending a conference at an adjacent hotel. The staff was very welcoming and accomodated my request for a room on a lower floor. The rooms were extremely spacious, more so than most Residence Inns. The room was sparkling clean and cleaned perfectly each day. There was a good selection at breakfast each day,... More

This hotel has a great location (about a block from Trump Tower and right across the street from the House of Blues). This hotel is brand new so it is very clean and the room is decorated nicely and clean. There was no bathtub in our room which I missed, but the shower was large. The only thing I have... More

This is a fantastic hotel! The location is great, it's close to everything, but off the Magnificent Mile, so it's quiet. The rooms are really nice sized. Having a mini kitchen is so convenient. The staff was wonderful. Free breakfast every morning! It was a nice variety, and there was something different every day. HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

I knew this would be a great hotel from the moment I called directly to book our room, which is 50% larger than typical hotel rooms. Walton Street is very quiet, but just a 1/2 block from Michigan Ave. Oustanding Rosebud steakhouse is just across the street. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to see how large...

The hotel is in a nice quiet location a block away from Michigan Avenue and has valet only parking. The rooms are very clean and modern with a nice flat panel television and modern appliances. Breakfast and dinner was below average compared to other Residence Inns that I have frequented. Elevators seemed to have technical difficulties frequently. Workout facility is... More

Stayed one night in two-bedroom suite - three adults and one child. The room was immaculate - modern furniture, 3 flat screen tvs, spacious, great kitchenette area stocked with everything you need - full-size fridge, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, stove, plates, etc. We were very comfortable. Easy walk to all of the shops on Michigan Avenue and good restaurants, but... More

I researched my hotel with TripAdvisor.com and found this hotel and liked what I saw. We stayed at this hotel in Oct 2008 and found it exactly as described by other travelors. The hotel is very clean and well situated at the north end of the Manefiction Mile of the Chicago Downtown shopping district. You are only half block away... More

Just got back from a quick trip to chicago to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday with friends. The Marriott Residence Inn was above our expectations. The room was appointed very nicely and extremely clean. The location of the hotel was perfect - would definitely recommend highly if you just want to walk to various trendy sections. Just a few blocks... More
