Courtyard Chicago Downtown/River North
Ranked #90 of 192 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed May 31, 2008

We stay at this hotel several times a year, and really love the location.

It is within walking distance of: the magnificent mile shopping, just across the river to the theater district, sears tower, and the art museum and the park. It is also convenient to the red line train which we take out to popular spots such as the second city comedy club, and cubs baseball games.

On our last visit we had a room on the 12th floor, and it had been recently rennovated. It had a wood shlef that went the whole length of the room which was nice for storing stuff. It was a decent size room with a small couch, ottomon and a desk. It also had a fridge. Typical courtyard style. The room was nice and clean.

It is also within walking distance of lots of great restaurants.

We were looking for a central location to stay in Chicago, and got an amazing deal through Expedia.com with airfare and two nights at the Courtyard on Hubbard Street East. We were expecting just simple, basic lodging, but ended up getting a clean room, top notch service, and comfortable beds to boot.

The staff at the Courtyard are courteous to no end. Plain and simple, I can't say enough about how well we were treated. There were 4 in our party. Two of us had a standard king room, and the other two had a standard room with two double beds. If you're like us, you don't spend much time in your rooms. Too many sights to see. Even though our room (the king room) was near the elevators and near the ice machine, it was still fairly quiet. Although, being downtown, it's impossible to escape the constant city noises. That's all part of the package, and has to be expected.

Again, thanks to the staff. We highly recommend this hotel.

The front desk was very friendly and they let me check in at 12:30PM. The room was clean, but bed and the pillow were too soft for my standard. I could hear other people’s room door slam from my inside my room and when the doors were left open, I could hear their conservations. I could also hear the noise from street as well. The flush of the toilet was very loud too. If you are a light sleeper, don’t think this would be the place for you. Location was great though, right between the magnificent mile and the restaurants. They have a Walgreen and 7-Eleven by the hotel, so if you forgot your toothbrush at home, don’t need to panic.

We stayed at the Coutryard on Ontario St. in downtown Chicago for 2 nights this past weekend and had a great time! The location is close to everything we wanted to do and the Magnificent Mile is 2 blocks away! We were able to check in early and also were able to stay in our room late on check out day which meant a lot traveling later in the day with a child. Everyone was so nice and helpful at the front desk and the door. Our room was very nice--clean, comfortable--a bit small for 2 women and 2 children but we weren't there for the room! My only problem was with the restaurant--we ordered room service and it cost a fortune. They delived it to our room and the pancakes were burnt to a crisp on the underside--the top looked fine! Neither child would touch them so I called and asked for a refund which they happily did! The pool was fantastic--the girls went in 3 seperate times and had a blast! I would definetly suggest some more seating--it got busy on Friday night. My friend used the work out room and said it was very good. I know we would stay here again and I recommend you give it a try!

This hotel was in a fabulous location close to everything including Michigan Ave and great restaurants and bars. The rooms were nothing special but they were clean and modern. The staff was very helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a hotel at a good price in the heart of everything you can't beat this place!

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. Overall easy check in process, polite hotel staff, requested highest floor available and was able to get 22, out of a possible 24 or 25. Clean lobby, pretty good doormen and good housekeeping. The room was a general updated Marriott hotel room, about the only thing not really updated was the tv, but it was still fine. If there still was some outside construction going on at the hotel, certainly couldn't tell or hear, so I'll just assume that's done. Location was good, one block from Michigan Ave, few blocks from Millenium Park and Navy Pier, and about 3 blocks from the Grand EL station. Overall, nice clean hotel in a great location.

We arrived at the hotel at 900 in the morning for check in. From the bell boys to front desk staff nothing but excellent service. We were able to check in early , and it was quick and painless. We stayed here for a day but everytime we had interaction with any staff the outcome was perfect. There is a starbucks on site, as well as state stree bread co. Had food from state street and it was pretty good.The room was spacious , and clean . The beds were heaven. We were on the 6th floor, same as the pool , hot tub and health room. There was also a sauna but it was out of order. I did not notice the chlorine smell other reviewers noticed. Also when you came off the elevator it smelled like new carpet, and the carpet looked new so I am assuming the hotel was renovated recently , or at least the carpets. Business center was sufficient but SMALL. I already have another reservation to stay at this hotel again in June.
