Restaurant in hotel

Good food, not a huge variety but pleasant staff, great ambiance and decor and served the purpose of some good drinks and food without having to leave on a cold, windy, sleety night.

We have stayed in a lot of Marriotts over the years. Usually the rooms are fine, but the restaurants, if there is one on the premises, are lack luster. This is the exception. The food is local, fresh, and served promptly. It was a real plus for our visit.

I think this restaurant would probably get a 4 star if it hadn't been a Sunday night after a big Halloween weekend. The problem was they were out of certain things. They only had one type of soup and only one desert. My wife had their beet salad which was very good and I had their spicy meatball small plate.... More

I am a Marriott reward member. This is not a typical bistro in a courtyard. I was very impressed with the food. The customer service was great as well. The hotel is a great location downtown Chicago. Eating is a plus. My expectations were not high at all and this place exceeded my expectations.

We did not stay at this hotel, but did meet some friends for drinks in the bar on Saturday August 8. The bartender was very rude and condescending to our guests visiting from outside the country. Maybe he was having a bad night but I will not be patronizing this business again.

I don't have much time to spend on this review. Here is the low-down. We sat outside which was the best part of this place. Service was ok at best. Not terrible but less than great.

During my quick trip to Chicago for a one day meeting I stayed at the courtyard on Ontario. It is a nicer than most high rise in an ideal neighborhood for my meetings and great for walking around. I decided to have a quick meal in the lobby restaurant. After waiting almost 10 minutes at the host stand a young... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
