I actually arrived about 7 hours before "check-in" time and they HAPPILY checked me and my companion in early, providing us with our two rooms. The view from the suites is very nice encompassing a nice panorama of the city. If you're a photography buff, then get a balcony room...I had a lot of fun out there with my tripod.
I paid for a "meal" package which included breakfast and a nightly dinner in their swank restaurant which I would not recommend(the package that is....the restaurant was great). The breakfast was decent (typical American style buffet) but at my first dinner I learned that my package did not include items from the menu and was therefore offered the choice between two "chef's selections". The food was great I have to admit, but it just felt a little exclusionary. The cheese cake was "to die for" and they happily sent it to our room after dinner. Room service quality was great and timely.
For us, the location was great. Boom Chicago is just a 5 minute walk away and right next to it, is an Ice Skating rink, a bank of ATM's, a cab stand, and the Bulldog coffee shop (although I preferred Dolphins). There are also no shortage of restaurants within easy walking distance. I would not return to the florist that is right across the street from the hotel....he had a pitiful flower selection and no vases for sale that would fit a dozen roses (fortunately the Marriott was only too pleased to provide one for me.) And highly recommend Momo's right down the street for lunch.
Oh and one last tip, if you are going to book a suite here, then do it through an agent. By using "Velvet Touch" to book my suite, it actually ended up being cheaper than my friend's "standard" room. I was a tad shocked at that.
