If you've stayed in other Marriotts, lower your expectations for this one.It is very dated. It should be a Category 2, not a Category 7 hotel. It's more like a budget hotel. Staff is fine but hotel is very old and tired. Location near the blue-line train and hospitals might be the only reason you'd want to stay here.

The hotel was fine and has been updated. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and all was good. The "club" was pretty low key, but it was ok for some snacks and a decent breakfast without going out. Parking is $45 ON valet which is crazy, but that is chicago. Also, my one complaint was...

Very nice clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff and a free shuttle within a certain distance. There is a restaurant in the hotel. Did have difficulty with system for the elevator. You have to use your room key to go up and it took several tries before it worked.

I picked this location because it is close to a concert venue I has going to that night. Hotel shuttle dropped me off at the venue but it wasn't running when the show was over. I took a taxi back to the hotel which was right outside venue. Check in was easy and I used a AAA discount on a... More

Stayed overnight to watch our daughter play at UIC. Glad I had hotel points, as it is pricey to stay here! Lovely hotel, room was immaculate, beds were amazing (though very high for a short person like me! haha). Always a little disgruntled when I see fees to park at ANY hotel. Makes me crazy - and $45??? As such,... More

This Marriott is basically the only convenient option for anybody needing to be in the area of Rush. Second stay and similar to the first--generally good property with a few quirks. Rooms are typical size with mini-fridge, coffee/tea maker, modern TV and tons of ways to connect/charge. You can hear hall noise and doors closing but little noise from outside.... More

Nice hotel, clean, great staff.Very friendly and knowledgeable about surrounding area. I cam for a work conf at the McCormick downtown. The show provided a shuttle from the hotel entrance right to McCormick place, so that is a big bonus, as I DO NOT like to drive around Chicago anywhere NEAR morning or afternoon rush.

Overall Hotel was nice and staff was friendly. Minor nits: hotel carpet and decor seemed a bit dated and carpets in halls need some help... breakfast buffet was great! Also other items - the toilet seat doesnt stay up on it's own and the flusher handle is way under the counter making it oddly placed. otherwise good place decent location.

I stayed this past weekend for a medical conference at Rush Medical Center. The location was quite convenient as I was able to walk across the street to the medical center. Furthermore, it is a short taxi ride to the Navy Pier District which has many opportunities for shopping and restaurant. Like my many experiences with Marriott, the room was... More
