I travel a lot for business and pleasure and Marriott is a brand that offers consistency. I know what I am going to get when I book a Marriott. I like that. This Marriott is starting to show its age, but still offers the business and leisure traveler great value.
Please note that the cost of sodas in the gift shop is the same as from your room. If you can book a club level room, it is worth doing so at this hotel. You gain access to the club room for sodas and other beverages including bottled water. It also offers a decent breakfast and evening meal. So worth the cost of club level.
There is a decent pool and fitness area. The bar is smack in the middle of the lobby and a bit noisy but plenty of seating area. The restaurant (Harvest) is quite good and offers the usual Marriott breakfast buffet as well as ala carte menu options. The business center is quite good and there is also a kiosk in the lobby to print boarding passes.
There is a Starbucks in the lobby as well.
This location is great as well for enjoying many local restaurants and attractions, many within walking distance.
My only complaint was the noise level. Chicago is NOT a quiet city and since I had a room with a beautiful view that included a sliding glass door, I had a hard time sleeping some nights. I recommend an interior room or specifically request a room away from the street.
Overall this is a good option for someone looking for a high end leisure hotel or a reasonable business hotel.
