Urban sophistication in River North

Guests at Courtyard by Marriot in Chicago's River North enjoy an ideal location a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile. Walk to Macy's, Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co. and other well-known stores, or taxi to Navy Pier, Millennium Park and Grant Park. The hotel's appeal exceeds shopping and sightseeing, however. Guests need not stray far for some of the best bars and restaurants in Chicago. Patrons can enjoy delicious Italian dishes at Davanti Enoteca and grab tasty doughnuts at Glazed and Infused on site. The Marriott name promises contemporary rooms, business and fitness centers and daily necessities.

Highlights
  • Located a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile in River North, a trendy nightlife and dining destination
  • Free Wi-Fi in all 335 rooms
  • Davanti Enoteca and Glazed and Infused restaurants on site
  • Indoor lap pool and fitness center
Rooms

The guest rooms and suites at Courtyard by Marriot could pass for downtown Chicago condos with their sleek furnishings, wood headboards and black and white photos of the skyline. Spacious baths and granite vanities further the upscale feel, while an ergonomic chair and wide desk provides comfort for bringing work projects back to the hotel room. Wi-Fi Internet access is complimentary. The hotel also touts larger rooms than the competition.

Features

In addition to free Wi-Fi access in all rooms, guests can also take advantage of a 24-hour business center to print documents or quickly access the Internet free of charge. Once those tasks are satisfied, head to the hotel's on-site Glazed and Infused for delicious doughnuts and enjoy delectable meals at Davanti Enoteca. The indoor pool and fitness center are open to all guests.

Great stay!

This was a great hotel. The room (standard double) was huge with comfy beds, a refrigerator, and a very comfortable chair/ottoman combo. The staff was great as well. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Waitstaff in the hotel restaraunt took a photo of our group and a security guard lent one of our group his personal phone charger for the evening - talk about going above and beyond expectations! I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Howl at the Moon is a dueling piano bar one block away from this hotel -- you can get tickets for free admission (before 10 pm) from local hotels, airports, and visitor centers.

Great hotel, Misleading promotion

The hotel was great! Clean, comfortable. Staff very helpful and welcoming. My only gripe was the "Family Escape" promotion. Kids eat free with a paid adult. The kids menu was extremely limited and disappointing. Breakfast was better then lunch and dinner, but still diappointing. This promotion is why I choose this room over several others, I will be more cautious in the future.

Great Location, OK Stay

The location was great. We walked to restaurants and the bus stop. (We bought the 3-day bus pass.) Went to all of the museums and the Shedd. However, it really would have been nice for housekeeping to replace something as simple as the tea/coffee that was in the room. Once you used it, there was no replacement.

Buy a bus pass. We hit 5 Chicago attractions by purchasing a City Pass, and took the bus there and back to all of them. Bus routes were very easy to navigate.

Awesome place!

Location is awesome! Really liked the hotel! Friendly stuff, room was really comfy. The only thing that I didn't like, is that there is no wi-fi in the rooms, but they have ethernet cable and computers in the lobby.

Nice for a night/weekend out in Chicago

It was a short walk or drive from several Chicago restaurants, bars, and nightclubs if you are coming here for a night out with friends. The hotel staff were very courteous and helpful with suggestions of places to go to.

Great Marriot Location

I love this hotel for a Chicago family getaway. The suite at this hotel is reasonably priced, the location is great!, the pool and related facility are a good value. The only downside was a very expensive hotel parking bill but that may be similar to other hotels.

Chicago's wonderful museums are part of the national reciprocity program. If you are a member of your local science museum, you may qualify for free entry at many of the museums in Chicago.

Great location and Price

Very enjoyable. Great room with King size bed. Price was right and the hotel staff were all very accomodating and friendly. We went to check out Chicago, and we left with a great feeling to want to come back. We did see the Christmas parade and the fire works display. Both well worth our time. Local establishments were Nice , but you have to choose the better ones. We will be back!!:)
