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.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

On the back of the building housing the hotel is a used book store - great for travellers wanting something to read and leave behind in airport/hotel.

Excellent hotel, friendly staff

Fantastic hotel! The room was much larger than other hotels I've stayed at in Chicago. The location was ideal, two blocks to Michigan Ave, two blocks to the red line. We ate dinner one night at Brasserie Jo just down the street and it was delicious! The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely stay here again.

Location, location, location.

It's a very small point for a very small group of lap swimmers, but the one lap lane in the pool should be widened by another foot to avoid brushing against the side of the pool or rope. Also, the internet service (and I appreciate it is free) should be increased at least another 5 or 10 minutes before automatically shutting down.

One Expects More

The location is great for good food and walking around yet not on the "Mile." Unfortunately, the first room we were put in was absolutely "dirty with broken equipment and missing light bulbs." The management did change our rooms but it was still dirty with broken towel rack, TV Remote, and sink. While we liked the location we were not happy with the cleaning.

Unbeatable location for the price

Location was great...within 2 blocks any direction of the el, Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier trolly, etc. Walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go including the Billy Goat Tavern, ESPN Zone, Harry Caray's, etc.. Price was very reasonable. Staff was extremely friendly & very helpful in giving us precise directions. The hotel bar was wonderful, especially the bartender...very accomodating and friendly. Definately one of the best trips we have taken. There is a fire station a block away so there are fire trucks and ambulances constantly going out, but I didn't even hardly notice.

Great Getaway

The hotel was very nice and close to all attractions that I was most interested in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with the remote control not working for the TV at 10:00 at night and it was fixed within 10 minutes. I was just pleased with the overall stay. Rooms were clean, quiet facility, close to attractions, great staff and willingness to accommodate my needs.
