A crackling lobby fireplace warms the space during the winter months at the JW Marriott Chicago, while dome-ceilinged ballrooms cast a glow over special events and business occasions. Designed by renowned architect Daniel Burnham, this 12-story hotel seamlessly blends elegance with comfort, from the rejuvenating spa and wellness center - VALEO - to the top-notch room accommodations. Treat yourself to innovative, seasonal Italian fare at The Florentine, or enjoy a late-night Chicago cocktail at the bustling Lobby Lounge. Swim a few laps in the indoor pool, or take it easy inside the relaxing whirlpool. Since undergoing a recent, comprehensive $396 million renovation, the JW Marriott Chicago is a fully modernized knockout.
Location
The JW Marriott Chicago is located at LaSalle and Adams, so it's right in the heart of the city's Loop District. When you stay here, you're just a short walk from the Willis Tower - formerly called the Sears Tower - and currently the second-tallest building in the United States. Have a picnic in nearby Millennium Park and catch a summer concert, or shop and dine at Water Tower Place, just a short cab ride away.

Convenient for Lyric Opera House

I was disappointed when they automatically put me and my wife into a room with 2 double beds. My reservation requested a king, if available. When I called the front desk, they said they did have a king room that they could move us to. The room was nice except for a stain on the duvet. In this day and age, and at the price they charge, you would think that internet would be an included amenity.

Great weekend getaway

I booked this hotel for a getaway weekend for my husband's birthday. It was in a great location and within easy walking distance to the L for transport to and from the airport. The room was very nice; the only thing I was bummed about was there was no coffee maker as I thought the ad had stated. Otherwise a wonderful stay and very clean room with nice amenities.

Perfect Location Great Staff

Walking distance from the train station and Willis tower. Check in was fast and the staff was friendly and helpful. The guest room and lobby were clean and bright. All in all worth it.

Weekend getaway

We arrived to hotel with very pleasant valet service. Staff very courteous. Hotel beautiful and very clean. Nice fitness area and pool! Only complaint is the beds and pillows were so hard and uncomfortable that I wasn't able to sleep and my husband was very sore. I would recommend this hotel to those who don't mind that or in future I would check to see if there are different beds available. We also requested an extra bed thru reservation and it wasn't in room. I did not follow up after check in; perhaps they may have been able to accommodate the request. I would have preferred to be located a bit further north.

Had a great 4th of July stay

We had a family trip to downtown Chicago on 4th of July. Very close to Union Station and walking distance to Millennium Park and other stores. Very comfortable beds and blankets. Clean and modern bathroom was great. Pool had clean water and nice running machines. Would highly recommend any traveler to downtown Chicago.

The hotel was very nice. The lobby bar creates an inviting feel to the place, many people always milling about. The staff was extremely friendly. The only drawback is I do not understand Marriott's insistence on charging an additional fee for internet access in their hotels.
