From the showpiece color-changing light feature behind the lobby bar, to the Art Deco-inspired lines of the Grand Staircase, the Marriott Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel welcomes guests with a splash. Get online anywhere with Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (fees may apply), while starting or ending your day with American cuisine fresh from the Midwest farm at the Harvest restaurant. There's a Starbucks on-site for those who need that caffeine fix in the morning as well.  Swim across the glassy surface of the indoor pool, or take the gym back to your room with a Fitness Kit, after a long day in the boardroom or out exploring.

Nice hotel in a great location

Clean, comfortable and convenient. The room was not large, but had plenty of room for a king bed and was quiet and comfortable. The staff was courteous. The location is very convenient to shopping, the lake, dining, transit and most attractions in the central area of the city.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

My wife and I were traveling with only one bag each so taking the "L" from the airport was easy, not much longer than a cab ride and many times less expensive. We did take a cab during the trip and I have no complaints, but we also took the "L" (subway) a few times and probably saved over a hundred dollars during the trip. The transit system was clean and efficient and seems to be used by just about everyone.

Good price, Wonderful Stay

We were very happy with our stay. We parked our car at the hotel and took the elevated train to Wrigley field and Shedd Aquarium. The hotel was within walking distance from nice restaurants and shopping. It was an enjoyable stay for everyone in our group.

You can't beat the location for walking. The staff was also more than helpful. Some say the rooms were a bit small, but I did not think so. They are comparable to other hotel rooms, unless you are used to a suite. I marked a little noisy because you are downtown & hear sirens. It really did not bother me, though.

If you are going to Wrigley Field, the Red Line is really close to hop to the game. We took that to the game & took a cab back. The cab was $15.
