Courtyard Chicago Midway Airport

Reviewed May 17, 2012

I rarely stay at an airport hotel in Chicago and the only reason I did this time was that I was with my daughter on a business trip. We needed to visit a small town in Indiana about an hour Southeast of the airport as well as another location in Northern Chicago. It just made sense to arrive here in the evening, rent a car, and head out early to complete business. My views of the area around Midway have all been North of the terminal, but the hotel is slightly South and in a very decent area, The motel itself has convenient parking and a nice lobby. The staff was friendly. This hotel is within a complex of other Marriott and other chain properties. There are many restaurants within a short walk or drive South. There are a lot of retail establishments along the road--even a mall a short drive away. The hotel has two business stations with printers and they serve breakfast in the lobby. The choices are quick grand and go as well as a full scrambled egg and bacon/sausage plate. The room was very nice. Ours was two double beds and it was very quiet. The bathroom was spacious and water temp. and pressure were good. The room was very clean. We experienced no problems at all and I would return here again if ever needing a hotel in this area. I am not a big fan of chain restaurants and TGIF is low on my list of chains. I did not eat in the restaurant so I can't make any comments about it.

This property is updated and very clean. The room was nice and as is to be expected for a Courtyard property. The staff were very friendly at check in and check out. There is a little construction going on outside, but didn't impact the stay at all.

The hotel serves breakfast, which was standard hotel fare. The staff didn't have it together at breakfast, with orders being confused and taking a long time. However, they kept a smile on their face and worked at it til things got resolved.

The hotel is less than 5 minutes from Midway airport, and there is an airport shuttle available. The hotel is located adjacent to a TGI Friday's restaurant, and also shares a large parking area with several other hotels. There are other restaurants within walking distance, and there is a Wal-Mart maybe half a mile away or so.

The price was high, at $199 a night for the weekend we were there.

My wife and I stayed there before our flight. The staff was nice and the rooms were clean, Yes they are going through a renovation but, they did a good enough job to make it a place where we would come back to.

#1) Beware is construction through July 2012. Some standard areas like the lobby,breakfast area, business center as well as the pool may not be available at times.

#2) Hotel is great for winter season and Summer since it has a private corridor connecting to a TGIF for lunch or dinner. No need to battle the elements to get some food.

#3) Hotel has a "marketplace" with snacks and drinks, but it is usually not well stocked. The three days I spent there, no water and no milk. There are vending machines in some floors.

Overall, Hotel staff is great. Rooms are a good size, and comfortable with a work desk and free internet in the rooms. Hotel is 3 minutes from Midway airport in an area where there are about 10 hotels with a common shuttle service. This hotel is not recommended if you are visiting tourist attractions or the lake area of Chicago.

DO NOT RECOMMEND HOTEL for families with small children nor romantic getaways.

I took precious time to write this review to help you make a better informed decision before booking your next stay. PLEASE take 3 seconds to indicate if this review was helpful. It would help me to know.

Thanks!

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have less constriuction disruptions.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about our hotel. We appreciate your feedback and are always doing our best to improve our services and amenities to accommodate all of our guests. We are currently renovating our lobby area work will be completed by May 1st 2012. All of our guest rooms have been updated in 2012as well. We have opened up a new market in the hotel lobby, and it was a struggle keeping it stocked for the first week or two. It is our intention to keep the market full of all of the items we carry for our guest’s convenience and apologize if you had any experience to the contrary.

Thank you again for your comments I hope that your comments will inform many travelers about our Courtyard by Marriott.

Regards

We spent one night here before flying out of Midway. The room was new, clean and bright. The only negatives were that the pillows were very soft and uncomfortable. The room was small, but they made good use of the space.

I stayed here twice in the month of January 2012 for business - and had terrible nights sleep each time. The rooms are decent and clean - but I have an issue with hotels having pillows that completely deflate upon use. I was seriously considering going over to either a Target or Walmart just to buy a pillow to use for the night instead of the hotel's.

Since I was travelling for business - my breakfast was included in the rate. Breakfast was fantastic, but not worth the usual price of $11.95.

Having the TGI Fridays attached to the hotel made it very convenient for grabbing an easy dinner and drink after a long day.

We stayed here last minute last Thursday night. We had a bad snow storm here in Chicago and had a 6 am flight the next morning. We arrived at 7:30 in the evening and the man who checked us in was very polite and kind. Much nicer service than the River North Courtyard where we stayed in December. I was quite surprised. Room was very clean and has a TGIF attached which was nice since we were hungry and weather was bad. Three minute ride to the airport-I will stay here again if we have early morning flight! FYI this is Bedford Park not Chicago address but airport is literally 2 blocks.
