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.

Shopping Getaway

We picked this hotel because of the location and we weren't disappointed. And it turned out to be a great hotel within walking distance to all the places we wanted to see in a short period of time. While the rooms were on the small side I didn't plan on staying inside my room so it didn't really matter. With that being said, there were 4 of us in our room and it was extremely hot. There was no way to turn the temperature down to make it any cooler. We had it on 48 and it never got cooler. On top of that there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom so between showering you had to let it cool off just so the next person could get in. All in all I would stay here again because it was a good hotel with a competent staff and an ideal location. We took advantage of the self park to save us some shopping money and it was close to the hotel so it worked out great.

Rockit Bar & Grill is located at 22 W Hubbard. This is a great place to sit and watch a game or just dine on not your typical bar food. The DJ is pretty good too!

Good family getaway experience

we had issues with the check in process when we got to the hotel. It took about one hour. They couldn't find the reservation in the hotel system. After a while they found it using Orbitz reservation code. They said the problem was that the communication between Orbitz and the hotel was corrupted???? Despite these issues they were not able to provide anything to make up for for the bad experience. No free upgrade, breakfast or free parking!! The rest of the stay went well

unbeatable price for the room

We visited the museums and Michigan Ave. I would suggest to include tickets to some main attraction w/hotel. If this is done, I would consider staying again at this hotel.

Location is fabulous, on Magnificent Mile. Great shopping and restaurants just steps away. Lobby is attractive, pool large, steam room good. Exercise room great, with TVs. Beds are comfy. Don't get a room adjacent to the elevators because you will hear the elevator mechanism all day and night. Nobody thought about soundproofing the shaft apparently. Kind of a white noise, not terrible.

Visit

I had a pretty good experience with this Hotel except that the heat wasn?t working very well on our first night there. We checked in very late (1:00AM), and the room was cold (~60-65F). I cranked the heat. In the morning, it was still cold. We phoned for service and they sent someone while we were out and they fixed it. There was also a tooth paste smudge on the shower curtain. Other than that the room was very nice, and the service was pretty good. I would go back.

Lively atmosphere, friendly staff

Beautiful hotel. Breakfast was pricey but otherwise wonderful with large selection. The lobby, bar and restaurant were very inviting, comfortable and well decorated. The bed (mattress) was sooo comfortable. Floor-to-ceiling window provided great view from room. Would definitely stay here again.
