Pros: comfortable beds and pillows; clean rooms and common areas; professional staff; wifi available in room (for a fee) ; free wifi in lobby; not noisy ; located in heart of financial district and 2 blocks from Sears/Willis Tower; within about a 5 min walking distance to Michigan Avenue; nice selection of items in the in room minibar ; Valeo Spa is located in the hotel and offers a relaxing atmosphere and a variety of treatments (stone massage was great) ; work out room has up to date equipment and cardio machines have individual TVs; cable tv in rooms with HBO; Irish pub 2 minutes away and W Hotel across the street ; lobby bar has a great selection of cocktails and a modernly cozy atmosphere.
Cons: hotel needs more food choices - the hotel has only two restaurants and if you are at the hotel over a weekend many of the surrounding restaurants are closed. Keep this in mind. Florentine restaurant in the hotel has great food but the menu is very limited and the service was slow. Food in the hotel is expensive for what you get .
Overall I would stay at the JW Marriott again. Great for business travelers. If you are planning on doing touristy things stay over off Michigan Avenue or Gold Coast. There's more tourist activity in that area . There's a Marriott in the Millennium Mile area if you are loyal to Marriott.
