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.

Delightful and Peaceful!!!

I enjoyed the ambience and serenity of the room. The room service was efficient and food delivered hot and steaming. I received business fax which was delivered immediately upon its arrival. All hotel staff were friendly and helpful in all areas.

This is where you want to stay downtown.

Location was great. Shopping was right there around us. If you are going to shop and eat out a lot this is probably the best place to stay for a reasonable price. Starbucks was right downstairs for your morning coffee. Room and bathroom could have been a little bigger but for a couple it should fit just right. Staff was super helpful. Getting a drink in the lounge area was a little timely but the nice atmosphere made it bearable. All in all it was a great stay.

Top-Notch Hospitality

Everyone went out of their way to see that our needs were met. Very customer friendly, and courtious. If we had one complaint, it was that the Dining was very expensive. It was almost like they WANT you to go elsewhere. Service was outstanding, but $20 for a breakfast is a bit steep. It was also $20 for a Burger and Fries. The room was clean, and the bed was Very comfortable!

Great hotel, excellent location!

The hotel is located on the Magnificant Mile. Right in the middle of shopping and great food. I was able to walk to all the major sites (Hancock tower, Millinium Park, Navy Pier, Lake Shore Drive, Art Inst of Chicago, Shedd Aquarium) from this hotel. The hotel was very clean and the staff were receptive and helpful. I could hear the street noise from the room (mainly sirens and honking), but nothing more than I expect from a big city. I was very happy with my hotel stay and would highly recommend this hotel for business or leisure travel.

Volare italian resturant is within 2 blocks east of the hotel. The food is authentically italian. Book a reservation or go early as it was very busy but worth the wait.
