“Nice location”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Extended a business trip and stayed a couple of extra nights at the Marriott. Location is great. Amenities good. Paying mostly for the location. The entrance on Michigan Ave is not the main entrance. Will hold your luggage if your flight leaves after check out.

Room Tip: The upper floor will give you a nice view of the surrounding builidings.

I have stayed in this Marriott few years ago (before the renovations). I booked directly with the hotel to stay here to attend a large conference that was held in the hotel. I stayed here mainly for the convenience of staying in the same hotel as the conference. In retrospect I could have stayed at other Marriott brands (Courtyard, Fairfield) right across the street and had more value, like free internet in the room. The renovation is limited to the lobby which is great. There is free Wifi limited to the lobby, plenty of space and places to sit, put your feet up and you will find people with their laptops, pads, smart phones.
It was disappointing in that the renovation did not extend to room. I had booked a King size room in advance but on check-in I was told none available and given a room with 2 double beds. This limited the space in the room. For instance I had no room to put the iron board near a socket to iron my clothes. This required rearranging the lamp and a sofa chair (unnecassary) for such a small room. There was also almost no room between the office chair and my bed to walk. A business hotel should have at bare minimum, internet included, a bath robe, a safe, a small fridge, water bottle and an iron. Except for the iron Marriott Chicago had nothing else of the above. The bathroom was also small with a very low pressure in the shower.
The gym was adequate for travell fitness. Except early in morning (6-7am) it was always almost empty and had no trouble finding a treadmill or an elliptical runner.
Did not try the food outlets.
No arguments regarding the location however that probably applies to all the hotels on the Mile.
Overall disappointed as expected Marriott Magnificent Mile Chicago to be beyond a local Marriott.

What a great place to stay while in Chicago. We were in for my daughter's wedding so we needed two rooms for the immediate family with grandmother. We were given 2 rooms which connected ! The rooms also had a limited view of the lake, really cool. I love the lobby. You can sit and people watch with your Starbuck's coffee. Starbuck's in the lobby as well. Internet access. Great staff, concierge, bellman. We could walk easily for shopping. Breakfast was included - awesome. Great time !

Room Tip: Connecting rooms are fun.

Right in the heart of all the action, this hotel with it's trendy lobby bar, Rush, is the perfect place to stay for touring, shopping, dining and exploring this happening city. An easy walk to Water Tower Place, Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Nordstrom's--you can even go back to the hotel, drop off your packages, and go out for more great shopping. Millennium Park is also within walking distance, as is the Sears Tower; and for the more energetic, you can also walk to the Navy Pier.

The hotel has recently been remodeled. The rooms are spacious, well-equipped, and quiet. Get a room that overlooks Michigan Avenue for a bird's-eye view on all the action.

Go in the spring, if you have a chance. The spring flowers planted all along Michigan Avenue were gorgeous!!

Room Tip: On the higher floors you get a view of Lake Michigan.

Very good service - needed some faxes done. Front desk printed my boarding pass for the flight home as well, as lobby printers were off line. Free wifi in lobby. Lots of conference space - we had a big program running, 400 people. Staff were very helpful.

Guest rooms a bit tired, especially bathrooms, for the cost.

Location very central to shopping, restaurants and Millenium Park. $40 cab ride from O'Hare.
