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.

Great Hotel

We recently stayed at the JW Marriott for my wife's birthday. The staff was wonderful. They even allowed us to check in early and out late with no hassles. The location was easy walking distances to the theater and restaurants. The in-hotel spa Valeo was wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a great experience and excellent accommodations.

Great for a special occasion

I was really impressed with the room amenities, location, and the helpfulness of the staff, but the room was a bit expensive for the average vacation. I'm not used to paying $450+ per night, including tax, for a hotel room. I would highly recommend this hotel if you can afford it.

Love it

This hotel is very clean! But the location is not very good because it spends ten minutes to go to water tower area. I book a room with limited view and a room with nice outside view. But unfortunately I did not find any different between them.

Great Hotel in the heart of the city

The room was clean, large, and had an awesome bathroom. It also included a wet bar, large flat screen TV, and desk. The hotel was quiet, and the windows were doubled so noise was not an issue. I would definitely stay here again.

Short walk to plenty of restaurants & shopping. Short walk (better weather) or short ride to most Chicago attractions.
