Stayed the weekend of Lollapalooza (massive music festival in Grant Park 8/1-8/4) in one of the two bed suites. Needless to say, they were extremely busy with people coming and going... wouldn't have known the difference. Jennifer at the front desk was very well organized and had us checked in and up to our room within 10 minutes, despite the 20+ people in the lobby. Rooms are a bit crowded (strange layout from living room to sleeping quarters). Very strange lighting in the sleeping quarters (we had trouble finding lights in that area altogether). Very large bathroom with great water pressure. For what it is worth - we had an excellent view.
Location was great! Only 1 mile north of Grant Park and even closer to plenty of bars/restaurants. The hotel restaurant that provided the room service was extremely ritsy (Hub 51... or something similar). GREAT food but I was judged by the staff and patrons when i walked in wearing khaki shorts and a t-shirt.
Strangest part - coming in from the street you are forced to take an elevator to the lobby which splits to another Marriott. Then you have to walk over to another elevator bank to go to the rooms. No big deal but a bit inconvenient.
Excellent service and friendly staff, plus the price was right. Would stay again. (Didn't check out the breakfast but apparently there is a breakfast buffet with decent food.)
