“Nice stay, good location.”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This hotel is converted apartments. All have a kitchenette, sitting area and a comfortable bed. I would definately recommend this hotel. The staff was very accommodating (I came down a few minutes after the breakfast buffet ended but they were able to get me something). Can't say enough good things about the staff.

The Residence Inn Chicago Downtown provides a terrific stay in one of the world's great cities. Situated about a block off of famed Michigan Avenue, and roughly two blocks from the enormous Hancock Center, this hotel provides a tremendously quiet stay in the heart of a big city.

This property has all of the standard features for a Residence Inn with regards to the room. A complete kitchen gives way to a beautiful room which is modern in its appeal. The bed is extremely comfortable, the bathroom large and the outside noise is truly kept to a minimum. Surprisingly, the windows even open to some degree to allow some of the fresh air from nearby Lake Michigan to make its way into the room.

The terrific location unfortunately does not necessarily equate into great views. While other buildings on the street are beautiful and well kept, they also provide some obstruction for looking at the skyline or the lake. Parking is also an issue. Valet parking is $47 at the Residence Inn.

Breakfast is provided. The hotel is not particularly large in terms of land mass, thus there are only a couple of elevators. The management is aware of this and provides guests with some expectations for the breakfast rush. It is advised to get downstairs early as the elevators and the breakfast lines may back up.

Overall, this property is very deserving of your business. It is a Marriott property and thus provides typical Marriott customer service, cleanliness and amenities.

Room Tip: The subway, or the "L" is located about 6 blocks away. The area is safe, but inclement we...

Again and again you must decide if you want to stay in a hotel to boast to your friends once back home, never mind if the rooms are tiny and just the lobby is wonderful or if you prefer a bigger room with kitchen and free breakfast but in a not so prestigious hotel chain.
If you are a moneywise guy then this Mag Mile Residence Inn is a great choice and you can spend the saved money at the very beautiful shops at Michigan Ave.
The beds are very clean and comfy. In general the hotel deserves some general improvement buit it doesn't compromise the comfort at all.
Reception is tiny and somewhat confused as they got some mail packages for me and reassured that it did not arrive, nevertheless the boxes were there for days.
Breakfast area is small and I noticed a decrease in food variety offered in the recent years in the Residence Inn chain - it was better in the past - .
In general the value is very good for staying here.
One advice: only rent a car in CHI if you have to travel to somewhere in the area as the hotel charges scandalous US$ 50,00 per night parking and anywhere: museums, restaurants, malls charge you more US$ 20,00 per parking even if you are a costumer that will bring them profit.
In the end you will spend much more in parking than in the rental of the car.

Room Tip: Near elevators.

This place is an apart hotel.
Good: location is great. Very clean. Good breakfast. Free wifi. Confi beds. Clean kitchen. Very good size bed room, kitchen and living room. Good A/C. 2 min walking distance to the water tower. Friendly staff.
Bad: bathrooms are very small. Tv service is below average (needs tuning).

If you are visiting Chicago, this place is really good. This place is even better if you would like to cook or come with your family. I did not like the bathroom sink out of the bathroom and small bathrooms. TVs need tuning. They even buy grocery for you if you would like to do so. Wifi is fast enough to stream tv series. Good iron. Dishwasher. I recommend this place.

Great location just a few blocks from Michigan Avenue, and a couple more blocks to a subway station. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was with our television in our room but the staff found a solution to fix it quickly. Will look at this hotel the next time I stay in Chicago

Not much to say about this place – exactly what you would expect from a hotel like this. It seems to be well managed, in a good location, and it has a great breakfast offered in the morning! Also, the rooms we stayed in had full kitchenettes, so if you were motivated you could easily prepare all of your meals in-house and save a few bucks while in town.

The location is pretty good, walking distance from some pretty good night life on Rush St. Chicago is a great city, and this is a great place to stay on a reasonable budget!

We have tried a number of different hotels in Chicago over the last 5 years and I don’t know how we missed this one. Great location barely a block off Michigan and a couple away from Water Tower Mall. The staff are true professionals and the room was great. Lots of space and everything you could want in a residence type suite. We’ll be back.

Room Tip: Give yourself a few extra minutes if you need a cab because they are not parked out front. But, the...
