Love the locations, friendly staff! We lover the rooms. They always bring what we ask for which is rare because most everything is taken care of even before we asked. Close to many great restaurants and shopping.

Stayed overnight for a business meeting and was blown away by the friendly and attentive service from EVERYONE i encountered (check-in, bell service, cleaning staff). The staff is well-trained and just give off a positive, helpful vibe. Like they are actually happy to have you stay in their hotel. Imagine that? Spacious room in exec tower, very comfortable bed.

Spouse was staying for a business trip, we added a few days for a family vacation (with young adult children). The Michigan Ave. location near the Chicago River meant that nearly everything we wanted was within a 15 minute walk. Front desk staff was helpful and pleasant; rooms clean and quiet (even though we were next to the elevator). Though... More

My spouse and I just had a recent stay here. This was our second time. We really do love the hotel. It's very classy as well as close to so much in the city!! My favorite part of my room was the gorgeous bathroom. I know sounds silly to some but I have a very small one at home so... More

Everything from check in to check out was very professionally handled. I had customers with us and we arrived early at 12:00 noon and with a complimentary upgrade, all of us were able to get our rooms. Great location to get around downtown Chicago.

This place has a lot to offer. First off, location, location, location! In the heart of it all. Walking distance to the Chicago bean aka Cloud Gate. Bus runs to Navy Pier and Willis Tower right in front of the hotel. Michael Jordan's steakhouse is downstairs as well as a wine bar. The staff was very nice and extremely attentive.... More

The hotel is older, but the lobby is nice. The rooms are a bit dated. I was in the executive tower and the room was very large to the point there wasn't enough furniture to fill the space. The bathroom was huge and the best part of the room. Views towards downtown Chicage were amazing and the location of the... More

We had a great time! Breakfast was included and amazing! Room was beautiful and clean. I just didn't like the indoor pool that much. The best location in town. Walking distance to most of all touristic attractions.

Spent just one night here this past weekend. We are usually Marriott loyal, but got a better rate here. We had a 2- double room on 25th floor. It was a little cozy for 3 of us, but we can handle that for just one night. Decor seemed to be modern and updated. The bathroom had a weird configuration. The... More

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.
