Five girls from Ohio/Michigan went for a girl’s weekend in Chicago. Our travel plans had us arriving at 11:30am, of course check in wasn't until 4pm, but when I called that morning to see if we could check in early, they accommodated us. The location could not be better – just shy of the Gold Coast and right next to Water Tower Shops and the John Hancock bldg. The street was quite considering we were downtown Chicago. The Drake and Millennium Hotels are down the street. Every morning we walked several miles in the morning – very safe neighborhood. We were two blocks east of Michigan Ave and able to walk to Rush Street. Oak Street Beach is less than 1/2 mile. The bus stops were close and allowed us to travel pretty freely thru the city. The hotel appeared to be recently renovated and has very lovely lobby. A full breakfast buffet is served every morning: eggs, sausage, pastries, fruits, waffles, etc. The staff both at the valet and the front desk was friendly. In fact, every staff member but one went out of their way to say hello, good morning, how is everything… Our two bedroom suite had a slice of a lake view, a full sized oven, and refrigerator, dishwasher and kitchen wares. The living area, Master bedroom and second bedroom had flat screen TVs. The toilet/shower is separate from the sink which made it convenient for five women to get ready. There was also a separate lighted mirror with outlets. Free wireless! We were fortunate enough to have a Marriott Friends and Family discount – total for three nights $900.00 – we did utilize the valet parking for one night, but then moved the vehicle to my nephew’s residence to avoid the $42/day fee.
