“Great Location for Shopping”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Very nice- higher end courtyard with newly designed lobby. Excellent location to the magnificent mile and tons of shopping and restaurants.

Even a very nice fitness center and indoor pool.

Staff was super and very helpful and friendly.

Rooms are a bit small, unless you upgrade to one of their suites which are very nice.

Everything you would expect from a Marriott Courtyard and more.

If you are looking to stay in an above average hotel in the middle of the action, this is the right place.

Room Tip: Higher floors for less noise. Many of the main Chicago hospitals are near by and you hear many sire...

Hotel is in a great location and close to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing tours. The room was a good size. The beds were suppose to be double beds, but my friend and I felt they were only full beds. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the sink is outside the bathroom. Great water pressure which is a common issue at hotels. There wasn't much of a view, but the benefit was that there was no street noise or very little. It is a city so there is always some noise. The noise from inside of the hotel was minimal. Our room was on the 14th floor and it was relatively quiet. Recommend higher floors. Hotel staff is very attentive and helpful. Everyone was friendly as well. John at the front desk was very helpful. Ronnie, one of the doorman was good for recommendations and had discounts to Andy's Jazz which is located across the street. The pool, hot tub and sauna are very small. Definitely will choice this hotel next time I'm in Chicago.

Room Tip: High floors, away from elevators. Our room looked over the health club and it was back from the main...

Big fan of the Courtyard chain and this porpoerty was no exception. Excellent location just off Michigan Avenue and State Street. Walking access to all points Downtown and the Loop. All this but located on a relatively quiet street. Staff was extremely friendly. Room was cleand and updated with fresh new furniture and was a very nice size. Good size working area and king bed. The free wi-fi access remains a huge advantage for the Courtyard chain. Free breakfast also a plus. Great choice for the business traveler and probably a very good spot for families. Right across the street from Shaw's Crab House and down the block from the Billy Goat Tavern - two Chicago landmarks.

Went to a quick conference at this location and had a very comfortable stay. Food served us was also excellent but the very best point was that I forgot my PJ's in the bathroom and they found them and sent them to me at my home via Fed Ex. I left PJ's in other locations before but this was the first place kind enough to return them to me, clean and ready for use!:) Very sweet staff all around also.

Room Tip: Try for higher room, to avoid any noise. There is fire station near by but it did not bother me on...

Stayed here for a night due to a cancelled flight and was surprised by the generousity of the people there. I enjoyed the conversation of Ms. Tabitha the front desk agent while I tried to get myself situation and she recommended a few places for me to try before leaving that night. Instead of me taking a $50 cab the next day she suggested I contact the airport shuttle which cost me $30. Very nice of her and quite resourceful.

I was in a total panic when my flight was cancelled...I couldn't get cell reception...and, then the fabulous front desk rep, Adrion, came to my aid. She let me use the hotel phone while I was on the phone for an eternity and even was researching rental cars in case I needed to drive to my final destination. Hats off to Adrion and the team at this hotel

Off of Michigan Avenue, a very nice spot to stay while shopping (for my ladies). Clean rooms, nice amenities and great beds. The attached restaurant is a nice place to have a cocktail. There is also a Starbucks for that morning jolt.
