Step onto the Magnificent Mile from comfortable Chicago hotel
Not many hotels in downtown Chicago boast a location where guests just step onto the Magnificent Mile from the hotel. Top stores, popular restaurants, hot nightlife and world-class museums are all within walking distance. Guests find comfort in the Marriott’s signature style, starting with a gleaming lobby, an enormous glass ceiling and Art Deco-inspired seating. At the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel, a sense of grandeur prevails.

  • Harvest restaurant, Lobby Bar & Lounge, full-service Starbucks

Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel rooms and suites take dramatic cues from the rest of the hotel with scroll patterned-carpeting, club and lounge chairs in jewel tones and tantalizing city views. Pillow-top mattresses, HD TVs and ergonomic work stations lend more comfort to the spaces. All rooms are wired for high-speed and wireless Internet access for an additional fee. "Fit for You" in-room fitness kits are available upon request.

Towels are provided.

Guests have a number of choices for dining and drinking on site, including Harvest restaurant, which serves American fare, the Lobby Bar & Lounge and a full-service Starbucks coffee house.

Great location!

This is the second time that I have enjoyed this hotel. The location is great! It's within walking distance to great shopping(Michigan Ave)as well as great art(The Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Contemporary Art). The staff is extremely helpful, especially the concierge staff. They will give you wonderful city maps to get you to your desired destination. The hotel is very nice. However, the rooms are small but still well appointed. I would certainly stay there again.

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.

Great view, great location

The hotel was located right on the Magnificent Mile giving us access to most of Chicago's must see places and restaurants. The people were happy to help and very nice. They even gave us our room for an extra hour at checkout and held our luggage for a couple hours so we did not have to lug it around while waiting for our flight out. I would definitely stay there again, no question.

Take the free trolley to Navy Pier at the corner of Rush and Grand, almost right outside the door of the Marriott Mag mile.

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.

The good and the bad

The hotel was very clean, staff friendly, and location fantastic! If you are looking for a hotel with a real antique feel, then this is the place for you. The only main complaint was that I was already paying a hefty price just to stay there, and when I wanted to use the gym, I only realized then that I had to pay an additional $18/day for gym access. Other than that, no complains.

Great location, quiet room, and good facility as an old downtown hotel. Good for business travellers, but not great for family with children.
