The hotel was exactly what my husband and I needed to go see the Blue Man Group. We ran off for a weekend away and didn't want to spend too much but still wanted Marriott's quality and service. This was the perfect choice. The room was clean, updated and modern.

The room was clean and nice. There wasn't a luggage rack near the bed - that was odd to me though. The continental breakfast was good. Plenty of places to eat and do in the area. Would definitely stay again.

First, a very good free breakfast...one of the only ways to save a few bucks in the city if you're trying to stick to a budget. Price was as expected for summer near the MagMile. Clean, friendly, and near the conference I was attending with my family. Nothing flashy, but I'd stay again if the situation was right.

We were able to walk to the Sheraton and do the Hop Off and On Bus Tour of downtown Chicago. The staff was kind enough to store our luggage after we checked out. Parking is a bit cheaper than some of the other hotels downtown $38. We left our car there the day of checkout, and picked it up when... More

We only stayed one night but were satisfied with the accommodations. The staff were extremely friendly which is the biggest standout - not the usual drones one finds in an urban hotel. We would stay there again when we're in the area.

We booked this hotel about one week prior to our trip. It's perfect location let us get to all our destinations with reasonable walks. The staff helped with local information.

I will start with the fact that the door and desk people were very nice and helpful. Then it goes downhill. The bed was about a 2 out of 5. The breakfast was about a 3.5 out of 5. The location to area restaurants is about a 4 out of 5, but if you want to go elsewhere, the location... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
