This is a new JW Marriott in the financial district. Extremely well done! Had a great room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I only stayed here for one night, but wished it was longer. The hotel is brand new and beautifully done. Service was excellent and attentive. The gym is one of the best I've seen in a business hotel, with all the equipment that one would see at a regular gym. The rooms are not large, but sufficient for a business stay, with all the amenities that one has come to expect (coffee maker, wireless, accessible electric outlets, etc.) I would definitely return to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a convenient location in the financial district.

Stayed a few weeks after opening and was very impressed. Beautiful lobby, wonderful rooms (particularly the bathroom), and great service. Also, very convenient to Sears Tower (or whatever they call it now) and nearby areas. Approaching 5 star quality. I highly recommend for business or pleasure.

When I learned JW was not just remodeling, but building a new hotel in the classic Commercial Bank building, I had to check it out. My wife and I had occasion to be in Chicago a few weeks after it officially opened, so we booked a room. Arrival was easy, right off the Orange line and down the stairs. Entrance is great, however, a bit sterile at Christmas time - i'd like to see more decor next year. We arrived in the late morning and the front desk was ready to accomodate. They actually offered to show me a few rooms before i selected one for the stay. While I checked out the rooms, they gave my wife immediate access to the concierge lounge for a cup of coffee and internet. The rooms on the 'inside' look into a black dark inner of the building and if you plan on spending time in your room, these are not the rooms for you. We decided to stay in a suite, and it was very well appointed. It was not inexpensive, and i would likely not pay full price for it - I was told over $500/night. Great views of downtown and large tvs in all rooms. However, the TVs are LED (i belive) and the picture is so sharp they look like pan-scan and make you want to throw up. Over all, it was a very good experience, and In my book, ranks right along the Rennaisance Pittsburgh, a Marriott property that I feel is always a clean and consistent product. My wife said the fitness area was one of the best she'd ever seen at a hotel.

The hotel is a recently remodeled old bank, or so I was told by a few people while we were staying there. The lobby is beautiful and though ours was quite small, the room was very well appointed. It was a great start to our day to have a coffee at the Illy bar in the lobby with Brandon giving us helpful advice. The hotel is within walking distance to the Art Institute and the 'bean'. We had great meals at the Purple Pig, Volare, Avec, and the Publican, Go to the Hancock building at sunset for a drink, wow! The service at the JW was spot on. There will be a pool but it's not finished yet (much to the disappointment of my kids!)
