Great Experience overall

I think this was a wonderful hotel with friendly staff, and a really good fitness center and pool. I really enjoyed working out here, bring your own headphones to the gym - each treadmill has a music player attached. We even got to check out at 3 pm, so really appreciated the courtesies. The location cannot get more central than this - you step out of the hotel, and find the Michigan Avenue shopping district. The only complaint I have is the long wait time for the elevators, sometimes exceeding 3-5 minutes.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The best part of the hotel was the great central location that it was in. Shopping, restaurants and the subway station are all right there.

Excelent location

The hotel location is excellent. Is in the Chicago Downtown, there is a bus stop 1/4 block from the hotel entrance on Michigan Avenue and the red train stop at two blocks in Grand Ave.

Hotel Lobby is beautiful

Previously I've booked straight through Marriott as a Marriott rewards member and (I feel) have been given my preferences of a high floor, type of bed, etc. Booking through Orbitz with a flight was cheaper, but my rewards number wasn't given ahead of time and because of that my room preferences weren't available. All in all a minor flaw and just good to know that I should call ahead of time to give the hotel my rewards number. Hotel was beautiful though and within walking distance to great food, excellent shopping, and Chicago landmarks.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Pizzeria Uno is a short walk up Ohio for authentic chicago style pizza--go for lunch if you want to avoid a long wait at night! Also, Brazaaz Brazilian Steak House is sure to fill up even the largest of appetites. Lunch at Brazaaz is half price ($25) and still offers plenty of meat options to try.

Chicago getaway review

Lovely room, excellent room service, but downtown Chicago is very noisy! Concierge service is outstanding; received maps, coupons, and expert directions. Enjoyed my stay immensely.

Nice room--bad service.

Very rude staff--otherwise uneventful and unremarkable.

VERY NOISY

I would not recommend this hotel. For an elite room it was VERY noisy. The room was very noisy and you could hear other guests throughout the night.The view of the lake was decent from the room. The concierge staff were not helpful and gave wrong directions to a main attraction sight.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

Get a pass for the Trolley (Hop-on; Hop off). Takes you all over the city and gives good narrative tours.Would not recommend Grayline. It was a disappointment and it does not run on Mon's.
