Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel
Ranked #60 of 192 Hotels in Chicago
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 September 2017

I was here for 2 nights for a business meeting, and my stay at this Marriott property made it so easy. First, it meets my three must-have criteria for a good hotel stay: (1) super clean (check!), (2) good beds & bedding (double check!) and (3) strong water pressure in the shower (check!). Both my room and the common areas were lovely - modern, well appointed. Service is excellent. If you're not crazy about room service, you can order your breakfast and pick it up in the lobby at the A la Carte window - very convenient.

The downtown location is perfect - easy walking to everything. Great visit!

Room Tip: Higher floors are more quiet and have better views - you can have a view of the city or the river

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Chicago. You can pretty much walk anywhere from here, or head to one of the metro stops just a few blocks away. The rooms were very clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable.

The lobby has an upbeat vibe, and there always seems to be a group down there enjoying music, food, and drinks.

This place was hoppin', with the restaurant and lounge very busy, a buzz about the place. The room was perfect, clean, and very comfortable. Renovated in 2015, you couldn't tell that it hadn't just completed. The staff was very professional and courteous. The location is awesome, right on the Chicago River, close to all kinds of tours stepping off within just a few blocks. Millennium Park, the Art Museum, and the theatre district all within close walking distances, let alone restaurants galore.

Room Tip: A room on the river costs more, but very beautiful.

Wonderful hotel with a great vibe at the Lobby ...
first I want to start with the warm welcome I received upon arrival the check in was smooth ...
I had a specious room over looking of the river and Trump tower which I recommend every visitor to take this category .
the hotel is located in the middle of the town not close to the Bean and Michigan avenue for who enjoys shopping .
Renaissance has an amazing terrace bar which is one of the top spots in Chicago .
lastly I want to thank every single one who made our stay wonderful and looking forward to visit Renaissance Chicago again ..

Room Tip: Room overlooking of the river and Trump Tower
