This is the only hotel my daughter and I have stayed on several trips to Chicago. It is very convenient for driving into the city as the parking garage is attached and extremely close to the lobby and elevators. Rooms are a nice size with small refrigerators and a coffee maker.

Very nice hotel right in the middle of the action. Only a block away from Michigan Ave. where all the upscale shopping is. About a 10 min. walk to Navy Pier and Millennium Park.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat. You can walk to Lake Shore Drive, to the A Line for a Cubs game or great shopping. Also many good restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are large, clean and very nice.

We paid about $175 on Hotwire... It's not bad. Clean facilities- spacious room / good location. So great to be able to walk to Eataly and Purple Pig! Haven't checked out pool but hoping it will be a decent pool. Great little place to overnight for suburban families - and I imagine visiting fam as well!

This hotel is very consistent with Courtyard Marriott standards so one should not be disappointed aside from a lack of complimentary breakfast - which is not generally available anywhere in downtown Chicago. There is a very nice breakfast diner just around the corner ("West Egg") which was fantastic. There is also a Dunkin Donuts right across the street which seemed... More

I was a guest for two nights on business. My stay exceeded my expectations. The room rate was competitive, the staff professional and the accommodations met my quality expectations. While not in any way extravagant you should stay here for business. I plan to stay again when next I have reason to visit Chicago.

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.
