    Great location downtown Chicago with a nice choice of places to eat around and close to a big shopping center. Friendly service, nice room and good WiFi.

    If you are looking for a place to stay that is within walking distance from prestige retail stores, trendy restaurants, and vibrant nightlife then this hotel is for you. This Marriott hotel offers its usual luxurious amenities and is located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile.

    Stayed here years ago for work. Excellent hotel and perfect location. Close to CTA, Hancock Building, Navy Pier and shops. A little pricey but worth it.

    I probably spend too much time as it is in the gym, but I loved that the cardio room was 24 hours! The restaurant happily made me an egg white omelette with spinach to start my morning off right. The over-the-top decor in the lobby was a bit distracting for me, and I had to spend a good amount of time here using the free wireless internet (and avoiding the upcharge in my room! Come on, Mariott!) Can't beat the location, but as one of the hugest hotels in the city, it was swarming with badge-wearing convention goers the weekend I was here.

    I’ve spent a good deal of time in this bustling hotel -- much of it by the decent sized pool, in the sauna or in the 24-hour cardio room. The weight room, which I didn’t use, is huge and offers both free weights and machine weights. It’s a conference hotel for the most part, though it does get its share of families looking for a good rate at a great Michigan Avenue location and to take advantage of the Mariott rewards club room. The rooms are on the small side and the bathrooms too small for my taste. The big and boldly patterned lobby with a huge curved bar sets this Mariott apart from its more conservative sister properties. There is a Starbucks in the lobby, which is super convenient. There is free Wifi in the lobby (another reason it’s so busy!) and on the second floor, where there are numerous couches and tables for lounging.

    When I walked into the Marriot lobby, I thought I was going to going to be sucked into a portal to dimension X by the mesmerizing vortex in the middle of the bar that kept changing colors. The lobby is huge with everything I wanted as I walked in: Starbucks, drinks, and TV. The Marriot has laptop safes in the bedside table and separate internet for phones which is cool for my iPhone. The bedding is so soft that I just want to wrap myself up in it like a cocoon. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought a set online for my own bed. The gym and pool areas ok, but if you look out the window from the pool you can see the lush herb garden. All of the herbs are grown on site and are used in the restaurants, the Harvest and The Concierge. Just be careful by the bar or you may be sucked in by that vortex. Exceedingly great hotel!
