“You won't be dissapointed!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've stayed at this property dozens of times and I've never been dissapointed. My most recent stay was a week ago and the staff was friendly and eager to assist with all of my requests. The rooms are always clean and well appointed. Even in the middle of winter we were able to walk the two blocks to Michigan Avenue and even to the Navy Pier. The breakfast and dinner on week nights is also an added bonus.

Location is not only great, but hotel is clean and staff is very courteous! Stayed multiple times now. 2 bedroom suite was perfect for our large family and it is just 2 blocks from Michigan Avenue. Perfect for a business trip or a family vacation. Breakfast is served daily complimentary and dinner on weeknights. Amazing!

We spent three nights here and we were very satisfied. The hotel is well located in the downtown, very close to Michigan Ave and John Hancock Tower. The room was clean and modern, the staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful when I asked for some directions. They serve breakfast and also dinner throughout the week but don't expect too much, however it is a nice gesture.
The room has a fully equipped kitchenette which we needed as we travelled with our three years old daughter.
I recommend you to go to John Hancock tower during the day as well as during the night, beautiful views during both daytimes. You don't need a ticket to get there, just buy some drinks in the roof top bar. The Lincoln park ZOO is also free, you don't find that very often throughout the USA and it is also nice.
I definitely recommend you this hotel and I would stay here again.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and it was wonderful. Every room is a suite, and even though ours was considered an "efficiency" suite, it was large enough to entertain 3 adult family members and the two of us on Christmas Eve. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Service is excellent and, best of all, it's pet friendly. Lots of other guests learned that, too, and had their dogs along for the holiday visit. Hats off to the staff at this Residence Inn. For 4 nights (during a partially stressful visit because of family illness---which is why we made the trip from New Mexico) we felt like we were at home. This is the second time we've stayed here and would definitely do it again. (Unfortunately, visitors with cars should be forewarned that the daily parking is $47 plus tax---typical for downtown Chicago.) Thanks Residence Inn staff for making our Chicago visit a good one!

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom. As earlier reviewers have said, there is 1 bathroom that is cramped, but we adjusted. The king bed was extremely comfortable and I slept very well. The living area was spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful, including the doorman who helped me with taxis on a number of occasions. We were able to walk to shopping on Michigan Avenue with no problem. By the way, there is a convenience store just around the corner that has just about anything you want in the way of groceries, including fresh produce and dairy, but at convenience store prices; however, being able to walk there without bus or taxi made it worth it for me. Breakfast buffet was good. I previously stayed at a RI on N. Dearborn in Chicago, but definitely prefer this one and would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in a one bedroom suite. The decor is alittle outdated and the bathroom was smaller than expected for the room size. The kitchenette was perfect and everything worked great. As far as parking, one block away is a garage that was only $87 for the 3 days total. Overall had a great stay and had a great rate. Staff was very accomadating and friendly!

This is an older building which is now a Residence Inn. The room decor is typical, with good lighting, comfortable seating (beds too soft, but that's a personal preference), fully equipped kitchenette, and although the bathroom is small, it's been attractively updated to provide a spacious shower stall with handy shelf for one's own bath things.The breakfast bar and evening receptions (complimentary light meal) include healthy choices such as fresh salad, fruit, yogurt, and whole grain bread. All staff members we met demonstrated an attitude of genuine interest in the guest's satisfaction, and while this is standard for a Marriott Residence Inn, it can be rare for a large city hotel of any brand. The location is a few blocks north of the Water Tower shops and Hancock building, yet offers a decent sampling of Chicago's varied small shops, restaurants, and is close to the lake, MOCA, and the Newberry Library. As others have noted, if you don't need to park a car ($47/day!) this is an excellent value for a short or extended stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have an interesting view of this largely residential neighborhood, and perhap...
