Adrian accommodated our needs very well and made sure we felt at home. 10/10 service he went above and beyond to make sure that our family was welcome in Orlando we were nervous coming from out of state but this was the best experience we’ve had and definitely won’t forget it!

Thank you for sharing a great review. However, we don't have an Adrian on our team and we are located in Chicago. Perhaps you left this review for the wrong hotel?

I'll start with the good. Location is great, easily walkable to just about anything Chicago has to offer. Plenty of food & entertainment right outside the hotel door. Even has a Trader Joe's right underneath it. My question to this hotel, why make rules if you are not going to enforce or follow them? We specifically picked this hotel because it was 1 of 3 in the City that had a pool open for our children. They clearly tell you online, and when you check in, that you MUST make a reservation to use the pool because they are limiting capacity. You were only allowed to sign up for 1 hour slots. So we followed the rules, made a reservation, and planned our entire trip around our scheduled pool time. At 7pm, we entered the pool area, and was shocked. I counted 24 very loud people in that small area. We were told 13 was the max. Most of these 24 people were there when we entered, and still there when we left at 8pm. Many more people just randomly wondered in, and left, because it was so hectic. The pool is on the 5th floor, there is nobody making announcements or tracking peoples times, or no wristbands or tickets or anything. I never once saw any hotel personnel check into the pool area. They didn't have any towels left. It was a disaster. So why make rules if you are not going to follow them???? Also, as a previous review stated, their elevator system is flawed. Inside each elevator they had kleenex to push buttons. Sanitizer was only on the ground floor, but not on the 5th or 6th floor. Guests & kids everywhere didn't have masks and were not following the posted rules. I'm not saying I agree with all the COVID rules & guidelines. But why make rules if you have no desire to follow them?

Thank you for sharing your feedback kea2nm. I certainly understand your frustration and agree with your points. We have modified our enforcement policies and double checked all sanitizer station placement throughout the property. We hope to see you back again here later this year.

We traveled to Chicago to celebrate our milestone anniversary. We are lifetime Marriott titanium members and have traveled worldwide to many Marriott properties. This one is amongst the worst. The place was an absolute zoo… Filled with kids running in the halls all night long with no security to patrol. We couldn’t sleep. They have severely cut their staff so long lines at the front desk and ZERO management or customer service. There seemed no regard for Covid protocol. Even housekeeping staff were not wearing masks. Only two of three elevators were working and were very slow so none of the guests followed the Covid guidelines one family per elevator trip which crowded guests into the elevators. Terrible experience…

Several issues with this hotel! In the times of covid-19, one would think that a hotel chain would take care of its hotel guest with status. My partner and I booked a Superior King Suite, and at check-in, we were given a standard “Classic King.” Our friend who also booked the same level or room checked in after us and was assigned the correct room type. At the time, no one at the hotel could assist us in the lobby, and we were told to call in on Monday and speak with the manager. After speaking with Marriott Bonvoy Elite customer service desk, they informed me that there was nothing that they could do. I then called to talk with the hotel manager herself, and she told me that it was the correct room and that if I really wanted, she would go up and look at it. Something tells me that she didn’t. The Marriott AC Chicago Downtown simply did not provide the proper customer service and took advantage of an LGBTQ couple. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. Furthermore, I will be looking into booking with Hilton or another chain that does not discriminate on an LGBTQ couple.

E627GQwilliamk, I truly am sorry you feel this way and apologize on behalf of Marriot Bonvoy and our entire hotel. I did confirm the room the stayed in was the room you booked, the Superior King, however, I also sent you a private email to discuss this matter and resolve it to your satisfaction. I hope to hear back from you soon. Jeff
