For those who have a huge exam (such as the NCLEX or GMAT) at the Pearson Testing Center a half block away, or are looking to have a great night on the town, this hotel is fabulous!
A few things to share about my visit:
-Prime location! Smack dab in the business Loop (Adams and Wells), neighboring the Sears (errr excuse me, Willis Tower), a brown line El train stop (Quincy) half a block away, and plenty of dining options.
-Architecture! The hotel is inside one of Chicago's famous architect's (Daniel Burnham's) neoclassical Continental & Commercial National Bank Building. Take a peek at those Grand Staircases are the entrance (http://www.yelp.com/biz_…) and the Burnham Ballroom on the 4th floor (http://www.yelp.com/biz_…).
-After stepping into my large room with a spacious sleeping space, tub, separate shower, and separate toilet room, I turned on the widescreen TV and relaxed to the beautiful song (thanks to Shazam: "There's a Secret by Zen Garden") and rotating pictures of JW Marriott's around the world.
-Huge work-out facility with a pleasant pool and jacuzzi (in the basement level) looked nice, although I didn't get to try it out.
-Staff was always very courteous and smiley--especially the fabulous lady at the entrance to the Valeo Spa. Wish I could have taken advantage of the spa too!
-Two small downfalls was that they did not have a King bedroom to give me, so I ended up with two double beds. The neat TV system's remote mouse didn't work so I had to just go to the Weather Channel versus using the fun JW features. Lastly, $15 a day for wi-fi (except executive and premier members), lame!
This JW Marriott location sure gives a great perspective to my Windy Hometown. Next time I have guests, I will recommend it.
