I was visiting the DMDII at UI labs and decided to stay at this location. There are plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and the room was nice. The room had a large desk and a couch. I was surprised to see they had Paul Mitchell shampoo, which is what I use at home....

There are some renovations going on and we initially had to move rooms. The staff was very good about finding us the same room types on a lower floor and in the end renovation work concluded by Friday at 5 and we didn't hear a peep the rest of the weekend. Location is only a block East of Michigan Ave.,...

This is a great place to stay in Chicago. Situated just off North Michigan Avenue and a couple of blocks from the Chicago River, it is convenient for business travelers and tourists. Clean rooms that are nicely decorated although the bathroom is small, obviously the product of an older hotel building that could not be retrofitted. Decent exercise room with...

Seems like a lovely property when you check in -- nice staff, great restaurants in the lobby and very clean. Then you get to your room.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. I appreciate the top ratings for Service and Location. I apologize that you were not able to get a good night sleep during your visit.

For me, this place is closer to five than four. But, I gave it a four because parking is so pricy. It's probably competitive, but still insane. The fitness center, pool and all that is very nice from my history of courtyard properties. The floor around the pool is the most dangerous I've ever encountered. The location is the best...

Stayed in a King room on the 10th floor the first full week of January. Location worked well for me but tourists might prefer to stay at one of the other Marriott properties closer to Michigan.

Thank you so much for taking the time to fill out a very detailed review. I appreciate your feedback. I am glad to see that you enjoyed the Glazed and Infused Doughnuts. It tests my will power every day to work with them in the same building and not have one. They look, smell and taste delicious.

As Courtyards go, this property felt just about average. Most staff were friendly, but one reception staff member was a bit rude about the timing of housekeeping when advised that the room hadn't been serviced by mid-afternoon. Rooms have regular Courtyard furnishings. Housekeeping was a disappointment. I stayed with a friend in a suite and, upon arrival, there were Cheetos...
