Reviewed July 15, 2013

My mother, sister, and 2 daughters stayed here in June, and it was another wonderful experience at this Courtyard. The staff were able to accommodate all 5 of us in one room and there was plenty of space for all of us and our luggage. The staff were professional and very friendly, the room was spotless, the free wifi is a bonus as is the Starbucks in the lobby. Looking forward to a return in the fall.

Our family recently visited Chicago for two nights. The hotel staff was excellent. Our room had two queen beds and a sofa bed. The four of use, including two teenagers, found the room very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool, exercise room, and free wifi. For an extra 20 dollars a night, we booked the room to include breakfast. In addition to hot and cold choices, you can order pancakes and egg dishes off the menu. For $20 a day, this was a great deal. The location was close to Navy Pier and the magnificent mile.

Stayed at the Courtyard Marriott for 4th of July weekend. Staff very friendly and courteous. Rooms are spacious and well kept. Pool was a plus with kids after a long day of walking. Rates were reasonable for that area. Close to sites, Navy Pier,parks, shopping and restaurants.

From the sounds of everything you had an outstanding 4th of July Weekend! Thank you for letting us be apart of your memorable Holiday. It is great to hear you enjoyed our spacious and clean rooms. There isn't any better place to be for the fourth of July other than being surrounded by the best shopping, delicious restuarants, and main attractions such as Navy Pier! We hope you will come back again next year and do it all over again!

The level of service we enjoyed during a four-night stay was as good (or better) than any hotel we've used in forty years as guests. Every member of staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Great food in the Viand restaurant, truly magnificent waiters and front desk staff (and management) who really care. Five star hotel.

Room Tip: High floor and the rear of the hotel give a view of the Magnificent Mile.

Haven't stayed at this Marriott before so decided to give it a try as there is a Garrett's Popcorn right next door, it's less than three blocks from Lawry's and there's tons of shopping for the ladies in our party.
There's a parking garage attached to the hotel, which is a plus. Unfortunately the hotel has nothing to do with the garage, other than a connecting door, so they won't validate. Cost was about $40 per day.
We went on a Saturday, and the hotel was booked up pretty solid, so we had to wait a bit for our room. No big deal, they collected out cell phone number and actually called when the room was ready...a first for me. Haven't had any Marriott actually follow through on that.
Check in was pretty straightforward, nothing special, room was nice, worth noting the tap water didn't reek and was fairly tasteless, but we still bought bottled water in the market.
We went out most of the evening and didnt get back until late. On the way back we walked past Chicago Fire Department Engine Company 98, a historic company as it's the oldest in the city. Seemed like a quiet night, they were working and cleaning. Boy was I wrong about it being a quiet night.
That Saturday night there had to be at least 20 full light and siren runs. We were on the 23rd floor and well isolated from most of the street noise, but the sirens on the ambulances and fire trucks were unmistakably loud. About 4am I finally downloaded a sleeping app that played rain noise on my phone. It managed to drown out 80% of the siren noise but it was still there.
Checkout was again unremarkable, breakfast at the Viand restaurant was awful; they charge $18 a head for the same hotel food you get as part of your stay at any other Marriott. Sad. But the staff was friendly, fruits were fresh and the coffee was good.
Nice thing about the hotel is the staff is very friendly, we rarely walked past anyone that didnt say hello or ask how we were doing. The rooms appeared to be clean and well kept, there's a tiny Starbucks in the lobby that was always busy, and as noted before the hotel is close to pretty much everything I'm interested in. I'll likely stay here again due to the convenience, but I'll pack ear plugs and eat breakfast elsewhere.

Thank you for your detailed response. We really value all of the feedback we receieve. Our staff works hard to exceed guest expecations and it is important to us to be able to address any issues. To begin with, please do accept our apologies for the noise level as we are located next to Northwestern Hospital so the sirens do go off sporadically. On the bright side, we are very excited that you were able to enjoy our location despite the noise from the hospital. Unfortuanely, parking in Chicago is costly, however, it is nice to have your car parked in a enclosed safe environment and connected to the hotel. We are also delighted to hear that your check in experience was organized and that we were able to contact you when the room was available. We will be sure to share your thoughts and comments regarding our restaurant with the appropriate department heads. We are very happy to hear that although the minor downsides to your trip you would still be interested in staying with us again. We look forward to have a second chance to show you that we really are a full service Courtyard that takes pride in making our Courtyard the best! We really value your thoughts, thank you again for sharing!

Our stay at the Courtyard was great. Arrival and check-in went well. The desk clerk was very through in telling us about the features of the hotel and the area. All staff members were friendly and helpful. The facility is clean and well maintained.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The larger Guest room with the King bed and sofabed are definitely worth the extra cost.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is only one block from Michigan Avenue and close to everything. The staff were very professional and friendly. It is more than we traditionally spend on a room but we wanted to be close to everything. Would stay again.
