We book it through the Marathon travel link and it was a good value with in a reasonable walking distance to the Start line.
We checked in at 10am on Saturday morning and the staff was very nice and gave us a room already available...even though it was quite early for check in time!
The distance to the start line is fine, it has been a good warm up to me!
The parking at the hotel is kind of expensive (39$ per day) but being Chicago a big city you can find a lot of cheaper solutions within walking distance, we parked on a covered self parking garage on Frankling ave, we booked it on line before and we paid 9$ per day!
The hotel restaurant is nice, we did not taste the food but they were nice enough to warm up my pasta!
The pool is nice and big.
The only complain I have is that the AC/Heater fan in the room is kind of noise.
