The location is walking distance to the magnificent mile (just down the block), and many other attractions. The hotel was very clean and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful with directions. I was happy that the shower was separated from the sink. It makes it much easier for 2 people to get ready in the morning. The... More

Loved the location of this hotel. Close to everything and the magnificent mile. Rooms are large, with plenty of space for our family of four. My only complaint is the beds are very hard. I had a backache when I woke up at in the morning. Overall though, a great hotel in a great location. Oh, and you can't beat... More

Very clean hotel. Friendly staff and a great location in downtown Chicago. Ate at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner a few times and it was very good. Pool was small and a little chilly but we didn't spend much time in the hotel so that wasn't an issue. Lots of shopping around the hotel. Walking distance to the river... More

Stayed here three nights on business. Good location - near lots of downtown attractions, including Magnificent Mile. Room was clean and comfortable - very good room service. Downstairs restaurant had good food at reasonable prices and excellent drinks. A small Starbucks on site for your morning coffee. All of the staff were very cheerful and helpful.

Great room with the usual amenities was clean and fresh. (Hairdryer was more a toy than anything useful.) Housekeeping was delightful as were lobby employees - what a treat. There's a "real" Starbucks in the hotel that also serves the street, and the lobby activity never ceases. Would return and recommend!

Great location....friendly staff....clean room....Just don't stay on the 10th floor in a room facing the indoor pool. We got to our room and looked out the curtain to see our view of Chicago.

Our family enjoyed staying at the Courtyard Marriott just off the Magnificent Mile. When we arrived we were greeted with smiles and a welcoming atmosphere. We initially were scheduled in one of the rooms that overlooked the pool, and we couldn’t handle the chlorine odor due to sensitivities in our family.

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.
