But nothing to really praise, it was a decent room, at a decent price. I have no complaints and I would consider staying again, my room had no view but for what I was paying I couldn't really complain. it is in a great location, very close to the red line and a couple blocks away from the loop, half...

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. Rooms are decorated well but starting to show age. The in-room refrigerator did not function well. Room staff did an excellent job of straightening...

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...

The location of this Courtyard is very convenient -- several blocks from Chicago River or Magnificent Mile. There are many restaurants nearby but I stayed here late December so many of them were closed for holidays. For other kind of stuffs, several convenience stores are open in nearby blocks. I was assigned a northside room which is quite enough in...

This hotel punches above its weight class. It's not luxury by any means, but then again, it is priced accordingly. Where it excels is in service - OUTSTANDING, and location. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Perfect location. Excellent fitness center. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for "bang for your buck."

The location of this Courtyard is great for walking to business area, especially the Merchandise Mart and dining along the river. It is also close to the shopping on both State Street and Michigan Ave. There is a rooftop area off the indoor pool and gym that is great for relaxing.

This Marriott is close to a number of restaurants and bars. This hotel is within walking distance to the magnificent mile and other Chicago main attractions. Staff is very friendly. They even gave my friend and I party hats before we went out on New Years Eve. It was something nice and unexpected. Rooms were clean and reasonably priced.
