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.

GREAT Location for exploring Chicago!

I surprised my fiance with an extended weekend trip to Chicago. The Marriott on Michigan Avenue was the perfect place to stay - close to Navy Pier, great restaurants (Joe's Prime, Portillo's etc), entertainment (piano bars), & public transportation. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Visit the Sears Tower during the day to see the new Skydecks. Beat the crowds & get a magnificent view.

Great people

It's always a little weird going in wondering if you'll get a king or a double. I requested a king bed and got it and I requested a higher floor and got 28 out of 45. That was alright, but I should have asked for a city view room. They gave us a lake view and I thought, "wow, cool, romantic", but it was not much of a view and the buildings you did look at were junky. I also noticed everyone going to higher floors than us, which erked me. So for that it wasn't worth the money. Great location and wonderful staff.

Great view of city, but tight quarters

We had a room with a great view of the city, but it was very cramped for four people. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful. The meals quite pricey. Appeared to be very clean and well maintained.
