Airport hotels are often somewhat isolated from most of the city that the airport serves. This is the case with the Chicago Marriott O'Hare — if you want to go anywhere besides the airport, even to eat elsewhere, you either have to have a rental car or take the hotel shuttle back to the airport to get a train to the city.
That said, this hotel is very good. Its rooms are comfortable and well-appointed (although aircraft noise from, I presume, older aircraft was occasionally audible), the staff was courteous and friendly, and the restaurant food was tasty and fairly reasonably priced. It has a 24-hour fitness center and an indoor-outdoor swimming pool — I don't know what happens in cold weather, but during the summer, it was very refreshing.
And there was a great sideshow while I was there: an Indian wedding with lavishly dressed guests plus a horse & carriage and dancing in the parking lot! Great fun!
As another reviewer stated, I had to call the hotel to find out which door at the airport shuttle center to use — FYI, it stops in front of Door 2.
If you have to stay at a Chicago airport hotel, this is a good choice.
