“For Business or Pleasure, this hotel works just fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Stayed here for a quick one night business trip. Hotel is well located near restaurants, shopping and downtown business locations. Was easy to get a cab. Rooms are fine for a big city, not large in size, but comfortable beds, clean, but small bathroom, and adequate space to work or relax. Good lobby for drinks, dinner and a Starbucks for a quick breakfast or cup of coffee. I would have no problem staying here if on vacation due to its central location. I will return in the future.

Room Tip: As for high floor to be removed from street noise.

This hotel keeps the Marriott promise that elite Marriott rewards members will be special guests. The hotel has a well staffed separate registration area for the Marriott rewards elite members, a large guest lounge on the second floor and makes every effort to upgrade the room if any better are available. The result for me was a sky high large suite that was perfect for relaxation after a hectic day with great views of Lake Michigan, the Chicago River and downtown buildings. I think room 4508 is the one to order. The gym and pool complex are large on the ninth floor and very well equipped. One evening I met guests for a snack and beverages in the Rush bar and the flatbread and garlic hummus were both excellent as was the quality of the gin Gibson that I enjoyed. I will come back to this hotel on my next Chicago trip as it is easily accessed by subway from Midway airport and is also close to the blue line to O'Hare.

Room Tip: Higher floors with rooms facing the lake.

The location is more than fabulous for my weekend with my girlfriend to celebrate our birthdays. Location is great for shopping and for restaurants. However, the hotel is dated, walls are thin, and waiting for elevator is longer. Service is ok but the beds are comfortable.

We couldn't have picked a better hotel ( for the $ ) to celebrate our anniversary. GREAT LOCATION, GREAT HOTEL, GREAT STAFF. We really enjoyed how easy it was to walk to all the shops as well as the water taxi.
Our room was on the 33rd floor and offered a partial lake view. We thought the beds were very comfy and they had a nice variety of pillows. We noticed they are in the middle of renovating some of the floors which will be very nice when finished. However please do not think that means the hotel is messy because it wasn't. The only way we really noticed what was going on was the sign on the wall heading to our room. We will without a doubt stay here when we visit.

Great location, but the rooms need an update soon. We are huge marriott fans, but the rooms were outdated and small. Luckily we weren't in the room a lot. The location was amazing. We walked almost everywhere. The staff was perfect, so friendly and accommodating.

Pros:

*Good location and right on Michigan Ave.
*Clean and comfortable room
*Easy self parking. It is right across the street.
*Two different rows of elevators depending on floor location. No waiting and the hotel was busy.
*Nice lobby bar for hanging out.

Cons:

*Room wasn't ready to after check in time.
*Rooms are on the smaller side. Bathroom is really small.
*Becoming a little dated and needs a few upgrades.

Overall a nice overnight stay. It has a great location but so do a lot of hotels in the area. Nothing would prevent me from returning but nothing really stood out to push it past other hotels either.
