This Courtyard is in a great location - River North. It's within walking distance of a huge number of restaurants and establishments. It's easy to walk to all of the tourist hot spots but it's also not crushed in the center of chaos. There's a couple great craft beer places nearby which is great if you like that (I do)....

Nice property with very friendly and professional staff. I will definitely stay here again. Suggestion: stay away from the attached restaurant Viand and be aware you will pay $48 per night for parking. $60+ for valet.

Marriott downtown is in a nice location. We were there on St. Patrick's day. The revelers were fun to watch. Hotel is an enduring jewel. It is not as up to date as some other Marriott properties but its elegance makes up for it. Service is outstanding as well.

Located just down from Michigan road, which was pretty central to our needs, we were able to park our car and spend the rest of our time walking the city. Our room was on the 23rd floor with a city view of other buildings and was very comfortable. We mainly ate outside of the hotel so can't comment on the...

I'm always looking for the prefect location to stay at. And the courtyard on Hubbard comes darn close to it. It's centrally located near shops, bars restaurants and rail transportation. You are in the thick of it here. The hotel has no convention space, that's a good thing! Why, because the elevators are easily accessed without long waiting times and...

I spent this past Friday and Saturday at the Courtyard Marriott on Hubbard Street. This hotel sits in a very hot spot for great restaurants and for bar hoppers. With all that activity - the hotel was super busy too. My first night was a nightmare due to nasty and inconsiderate people staying on the property. Unfortunately, I called down...

Thank you for your kind comments about the service that John and Michelle provided during your stay. I am sorry that your first night was ruined by noisy neighbors. I know how frustrating that can be. I am glad that John was able to recover your stay so you could enjoy your second night.

We don't get to Chicago as much as we used to, but it was a real pleasure finding that the Hubbard St. Marriott Courtyard continues to be clean, comfortable and absolutely convenient. The theaters, Loop, Art Institute and Magnificent Mile are all an easy walk. Hubbard Street itself is home to several great restaurants, and you won't need a cab...

Hotel and Staff If you’ve stayed at a Courtyard by Marriott, I don’t have to describe the interior, they are all the same. The staff doing check-in was nice and helpful.

Was very impressed by this hotel. Room was clean and inviting and had an "ok" view of the city in room 1417.
