Courtyard Chicago Downtown/River North
Ranked #93 of 191 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Courtyard was the perfect location for the Magnificent Mile. Just steps away from Garrett's Gourmet Popcorn. A small Starbuck's inside the hotel was very crowded in the mornings. Room was large and clean. Ample towels (very soft) and comfortable king size bed. Front desk was very helpful. There is a lounge/bar attached to the hotel, nice but drinks seemed pricey even for downtown Chicago.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor and away from the elevators.

I want to again give my thanks to the staff for the way they handled New Year's Eve. I appreciate signing a form, wearing a wristband, and feeling confident that I won't be up all night listening to neighbors party, drink, laugh, cry and vomit.

Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable. We really enjoyed the hot tub, pool, and sauna. The room was clean, modern, and the quality of the linens were better than I would have expected. The location was perfectly situated within shopping and the Navy Pier. I'd highly recommend the Armenian Restaurant, Sayat Nova, that is a couple blocks away - incredible food! Again, compliments to the staff and management for an effort well done! We'll be back!

Stayed here while on a combination work/fun trip with my spouse. Was a great location for him to easily visit his customers and an even better location for me to begin my shopping expeditions. Everything we needed was within walking distance, such as the Red line, shopping, great dining, enterainment. Loved being able to grab a Starbucks coffee after my morning run!

From the welcoming greeting by desk staff and throughout our 4-day stay, the Courtyard in the River North area of Chicago met or exceeded our expectations. Visiting for a conference, I was struck by how much hotel prices have increased in the downtown/River North area. Our former regular haunt, the Monaco (Kimpton), has become a bit out of reach, price-wise. For less than 1/2 of what the Monaco was charging, we were able to relax and enjoy a nice view through our large window that spanned the full width of the king-bed room. [By the way, an excellent shade system in the room resulted in almost total darkness for sleeping.] Limited dining opportunities in the hotel, but the area is rich with a variety of options. Not a lot of frills, but I would certainly recommend the Courtyard as a fine place to launch your exploration of Michigan Avenue, downtown, and River North in Chicago. We will be back.

Room Tip: Some street noise each night on the Hubbard side of the hotel. Jazz club and lively restaurant locat...

The Courtyard Marriott Chicago Downtown in the River North section of town was fabulous. The room was clean and quiet. There were some roudy guests one night that woke us up at 3am, but other than that we loved our stay. The staff at the front desk were so courteous and friendly; always greeting us when we arrived and seeing if we needed assistance with a cab, or directions when we were leaving. This section of town contains MANY restaurants, bars, clubs, coffee shops, etc. and there are always train stops to take you to other parts of town quickly.

We stayed here for 3 nights, we had a spacious room with two queen beds. Comfy beds and good lightning in the room. But the best thing with the hotel was the location, it was walking distance to most attractions, or else there was a lot of buses nearby for example getting to the Zoo. A lot of restaurants also nearby to choose from.

Both checkin and check-out was fast, and the satff was very friendly.
